On the 31/08/2013 Jacob Mellor, Mark Phillips and Russell Selby left their homes in Tameside to cycle around the world for charity
We left our houses in Manchester with the aim of cycling around the world for charity using only our bikes as transport and tents as shelter. The goal is to raise 10,000 pounds for our 4 chosen charities, Cancer Research, Kidneys for Life, Save the Children and WaterAid.
Together we were on the road for two years, cycled nearly 30,000km and passed through over 25 different countries. Not everything has gone to plan but, but it would be boring if it did. Now Russ continues on the second half of the trip, the Americas. Landing in Ushuaia, the most southernthly city in the world and is riding north to New York. At the start of 2018 Russ is in Costa Rica, he has been pedalling north in Latino America for 15 months and has now surpassed 50000km marker. Mark and Jake are no longer with us having made the tough decision to go home after completing Asia amd Australia respectivly.
Through this website you will be able to follow our progress, the map shows where we currently are in the world (or at least where we were a few days ago, depending on internet). We post a blog giving you an insight into each country we have visited. And for all you lazy bums we have some easily digestible videos you can get a kick out of. But if you would like more you can navigate via the menu to find out some detailed information about our adventure.
Unfortunatly updating this page is somwhat difficult, visit our facebook page for a more current update on Russ’ progress.
