I `

Hi, thanks for visiting my website. I originally used it to share my bike ride around the world, but over the past couple of years it's grown to be a lot more than that, so I've redesigned it. I hope you like the new layout. There's loads of stuff here, including cycling adventures, triathlon race reports, photos, blog post, advice, downloads, a book (kindle and paperback available), and loads more. All the old stuff is still here too. 

The purpose of this site is to prove that amazing adventures are not just dreams, they are a reality and they can be a reality for anybody. Have a look around - you might just want to read what I've been doing, you might find an adventure that you want to try yourself, who knows... you might find yourself setting off for your own long distance bike tour this time next year. 

The world is a wonderful place and I think that a bike provides the best way to experience it. A bike is: a way of getting from A to B, a luggage carrier, a talking point, an observation platform, something that you have in common with people in any country, something to race on, a ticket to remote places, something to exercise on, and most importantly bloody good fun!

Let me know what you've been using your bike for, if you're on an adventure, if you need any help planning one or anything else. Get in touch here.

(The book is written using the notes I made in a diary every evening of my ride and took over a year to write)


If you've read my book, you'll know that my favourite country that I cycled through was Georgia. A fellow long-distance cycle tourist, Andrew Welch has recently set up a fantastic set of cycle touring holidays in Georgia. Georiders offers mountain biking and bicycle tours tours in the Caucasus mountains, custom made tours for individuals and groups and bicycle rental. Their mission is to enable adventurous visitors to explore off the beaten track and taste the unique character and astonishing beauty of Georgia. I will be heading out to help run some of the tours in the future so maybe see you there! Have a look at their website, it's a great opportunity to explore one of the most interesting countries in the world.

  • Back from India Well - India was unbelievable. What an adventure! Harry and I crossed the highest pass in the world, which took 24 hours to climb. It was a very tough, but incredibly rewarding three week trip. I'm in the process of writing a photo book, more news on that coming soon. Here's one of the more spectacular camping spots from the trip. Contact me if you're interested in pre-ordering a copy of the photo book.
