Helen Smeaton is a cycling and yoga addict who owns and runs both a cycling and walking business called Wheelie Cyprus (**) with her husband Alistair, and also a yoga business Not Just Yoga based in, you've guessed it Cyprus!

Some say life begins at 40. It did for Helen when she gave up the UK rat race back in 2005 to follow her dream and move to Cyprus to live life on her terms with her wonderful husband Alistair.

When she's not pedalling, practicing or teaching yoga, Helen is busy writing, another career after starting a couple of websites to supplement her income in the early years of building a new cycling business. Website building and website design led her to start freelance writing to add another stream of income and this in turn has led to eBook publishing. Who says being self-employed isn't a whole lot of fun?

Prior to starting her own business, Helen was lucky enough to travel to some of the most scenic, far flung corners of the world in pursuit of the next cycling or hiking challenge including Bolivia, Ethiopia, New Zealand, Brazil and Tanzania to name just a few.

In her 50th year, she embarked on a new journey by completing an intensive 200 hour yoga teacher training with Frog Lotus International in beautiful Andalucia, Spain. She's been sharing her passion for yoga with students in Cyprus ever since.

** March 2023 - After much reflection during the Covid pandemic, Alistair and Helen decided to retire from the cycling business at the end of 2022. Wheelie Cyprus is for sale if any like-minded cyclists are interested in taking on their family business.

Meanwhile, Helen continues to teach yoga part-time and is planning the next adventure, starting with renovating their new home in the mountain village of Lysos.
