In Cycling Plus in 1999, she said: Cooking started subsidising cycling when she was 15 and by 17 it paid for her first big trip, around the coast of Britain, inspired by a tour of the Isle of Wight when she was 10. By September 2005, she'd biked through 48 countries.
She crossed Europe with her boyfriend, which led to her first writing success, Wind in my Wheels. After her boyfriend was injured in a crash she began travelling alone, which she prefers, despite those who find it strange.
In March 2007, Long Cloud Ride, her book about New Zealand was selected among the top 10 writer's reads by Geographical. In 2008, Dew was invited to open the Sustrans Cycle Route 88, a bike path that runs from Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve to Chichester Canal and was more than twenty years in the making.
