I am cycling around the world. So if you live in the world its likely I will be passing through close to where you live. I have met the most amazing, supportive and inspirational people on my journey around the World.
I use my vacation time, banked time and long service leave each year to cycle as fast and as far as I can on the journey. I can usually cover an average 160 km (100 miles) a day and 5000 km (3,000 miles) per leg.
I have now cycled more than 1/2 way around the Earth by bicycle. That's a total of over 12,000 km cycled and 200,000 ft of elevation climbed. I have had many flats in my apparently flat proof tires.
By cycling across 30 Countries fundraising for 3 Cancers (breast, prostate and lung cancer), my passion is to share my story and inspire people to fund raise themselves for cancer charity, show cancer patients that people are out here fundraising to help find a cure and give them hope for a cure.
The idea to circumnavigate the globe by bicycle was born when diagnosed with Cancer 10 years ago. Over time my entire family was diagnosed with cancer. I was the last one.
I was inspired by others fundraising for cancer research. I have decided to join them to help put an end to it. So why don't you join me by please making a donation or supporting my journey by writing me a letter.
For confirmation letters from my charities and government officials please see media-official letters. Or even better follow my blog and GPS location each day.

Guinness World Records has decided that instead of having to bike for the whole circumference of the globe, the record is set by riding at least 18,000 miles and travelling at least 25,000 miles. This allows for transport across oceans by airlines etc. The rules state: "the journey should be continuous and in one direction (East to West or West to East), that the minimum distance ridden should be 18,000 miles, and that the total distance travelled by the bicycle and rider should exceed an Equator's length, i.e. 24,900 miles. Previous legs crossed five Countries in Europe Germany to Hungary, and from Vancouver Canada along the Pacific Coast to Mexico then across the US continent Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast.
