Five weeks to go!! In mid-July this year I am planning on attempting to cycle solo from London to Asia, but with a slight twist. In the summer heat of Europe if that wasn’t enough, I am trying to make the whole journey without the use of money, can’t touch it, can’t be given it, can’t have it sent to places.

This story is about giving, for every gift I receive, whether a glass of water or a bed to stay, I will personally give £1 to a chosen charity.
To train for this I am cycling from Wiltshire up to Edinburgh tomorrow, hopefully showing some of Britain’s magnificent landscapes and people along the way.

I hope you can follow my story through the ups and downs in the months ahead.
