On January 5th 2010 I'm left my life in the UK behind to cycle the length of six of the earth’s continents over around six years. I estimate I’ll cover some 50,000 miles through around 60 countries… a distance roughly equivalent to twice the circumference of the earth. I’m planning to travel only by bicycle as I traverse each continent with the odd boat ride in between to connect up my route around the planet (I had considered manufacturing some peddle-boat contraption for watery stretches, mercifully long since dismissed). Eventually, smelling quite terrible and well into my 30’s, I’ll return to England. Hopefully those who still remember me will be waiting to hear the increasingly insane ramblings of someone who has become more calf muscle than man.
