I cycled around the world for fun and to raise money for RoadPeace, a small charity which looks after the bereaved and injured from road crashes and campaigns for safer streets. Road crashes kill 1.3m a year, more than malaria or TB; by 2030 they will kill more than HIV/AIDS.

My trip was entirely self-financed. All donations go entirely to RoadPeace, none to me for new tyres or beer etc.

Lots more info about me and the ride on the blog:
and in the book - all book sales proceeds are going to RoadPeace
