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).

Mate, you're so close to the finish now. Found your blog while I was cycle touring in Europe and cheering you on silently now I'm back home in New Zealand. These will be the hardest days. Stay strong!

Sorry it's taken so long I've been meaning to donate for ages now. Really enjoy your blogs and find it very inspiring. Best of luck for the rest of the trip and I hope you get nearer your goal of £5000 I'll help put the word out.
