Bristol to Brisbane by Bike

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.
