Hi there, my name is James Finnerty and I've just set myself the challenge of cycling from London to Shanghai to raise money for charity that made a lot of difference to some friends of mine.

I aim to take around 9-12 months to complete this journey.

Event details

From London to Shanghai by Bicycle

I will be cycling roughly 10,000 miles from London, UK to Shanghai, China using other forms of transport only when absolutely necessary (i.e. boats to cross water, car/bus if the bike needs repairs or if a visa is going to expire).
