Ed Cox likes adventure and riding his bicycle. So, after being fed up stuck in the office, he decided to stretch his legs and cycle around the world for a good cause. He pedalled 22,530km (14,000 miles) from Bristol to Brisbane, Australia.
“It’s amazing, a trip of lifetime but also very tiring, I think my favourite country has to have been Iran; it’s such a contrast to what we read and hear about. I have never felt so safe and the hospitality was like no other. I would love to return,” he said.
He finished his journey on Saturday and raised £8,600 for Alzheimer´s research, in honour of his grandmother. The 26-year-old quit his job in recruitment to take on the 9 months challenge.
