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.

So far we have been 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. We are currently in Australia raising capital to continue our journey, however unfortunately Mark is no longer with us having made the tough decision to go home after completing Asia.

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.
