What? Where? Why?
I am currently attempting to bicycle my beautiful "Regal Beagle" (The Light Blue - Darwin) around-the-world, solo, assisted and 100% SELF-FUNDED, all of this with no prior training, research nor knowledge of cycling or what I’m likely to expect!!! However, I figure the worlds just a big circle, as long as you keep going the same way, how wrong can you go???
Why am I doing such a crazy thing? Well, “Why Not”!!!
The intention behind this ridiculous challenge, is to raise £150,000, initially, so that I can help in setting up and establishing a much needed sporting charity in rural Cambodia, a country and nation that stole my heart in 2014, when I was fortunate enough to live and work there for 3 months.
It was whilst living in Cambodia I got to see first hand the massive issues and problems facing the country, namely with child labour, prostitution, sexual tourism and sexual exploitation. I was already contemplating a massive charity challenge at this time and it was whilst stood on the beach with my Cambodian friends, that I vowed to come back and do something, anything to try and help this incredible country and in that moment the preposterous idea of a HUGE cycle challenge was born, although it has blossomed substantially since!!!
Are you willing, or able to support this fantastic cause? If so please - Click Me!!!
Remember I am 100% SELF-FUNDING this challenge and any/all donations made will be going directly to a registered charity bank account and held until such time that the charity is ready to be registered. This has been done through the 'Centre For Innovation In Voluntary Action community'(CIVA - Registered charity number 1122095), whose purpose is to "develop, pilot and fund new ideas for addressing social problems".

Want to help the cause, but want a little something in return???
Why not!!! Please check out ¿Por Qué No? a charity clothing label that has been set up in conjunction with the ride and from which 100% of all proceeds will be going directly to help set up and then in the future, we hope sustain the charity!!! Allowing for the possibility of the charity becoming 100% self-sufficient!!!!
But we need your help!!! Please Check out!
