Sean Conway on 18th February 2012, I will be attempting to break the world record for cycling solo and unsupported around the world.
He chose this challenge, partly as it will most definitely be the most physically and mentally demanding experience I have ever had, and partly as I wanted to do something that would allow me to raise as much money for charity as possible.
Helping people less fortunate than myself (which is 99% of the world) has always been one of my main motivations. If I spend the rest of my life doing challenges in aid of charity then I will die a happy man.
18,000 miles. 2 wheels. 150 days
I'll be cycling 15 hours a day through every continent, solo and unsupported with nothing but my bike, a tent and tons of maps
Smoke inhalation from flame based light sources, such as kerosene lamps, kills more people than Malaria
So my aim is to banish these kerosene lamps by the end of the decade.
He will be doing this with the help of Solar Aid
Target is £100,000.00
Raised so far: £6,020.04 please donate by
text ‘BIKE91 £10’ to 70070
