Summer 2010, I leave Derby, UK,
beginning a solo
cycle expedition around the world. Heading East through Europe and the
Middle East, over the Himalayas and down through South East Asia to
Australia. To then cycle up the West coast of the Americas before
heading back through North Africa, Western Europe and home. An
adventure to test both physical and mental endurance, rewarding me with
access to some of the least visited and most inspiring people and
places on the planet.
In undertaking this adventure, I am raising money for Derbyshire Children's Holiday Centre, a charity that works to increase opportunities for disadvantaged children in the local community. The Centre provides safe, caring and happy holidays planned to contribute to the personal and social development of the children, please visit their website for full information on their work.
