Greg Foyster wakes one day and realises his job in advertising is hopelessly at odds with how he wants to live. Looking for inspiration, he and his partner Sophie decide to cycle from Melbourne to Far North Queensland (via Tasmania, naturally) scouting out ways to live more simply. On the road, the couple realises how preposterously underprepared they are - Greg is a camping klutz, while Sophie proves to be the practical one. They are spurred on by the many inspiring and eccentric characters they meet - including a forest activist living up a tree, an 18th-century woodsman, and amonk who spends his life walking barefoot through Queensland. Featuring eye-opening encounters with DIY downshifters and leading figures in sustainability, Changing Gears is a high-spirited adventure that explores an important question for the future: can we be happier with less?

    A great read! Greg and Sophie are definitely an inspiration for those moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle. Their encounters with people living sustainably through out their ride really highlights the fact that there is no a one size fits all solution; there are many ways to live sustainably.
