About this project

"One Man and his Bike" follows my adventures around the world with just me,my bike and the gear i have brought with me to get me back to sunny london in one piece.

The adventure will take us through the alps,, the narrow streets of europe, the dangerous war torn middle east, the collossus hights of mount everest, the bussling streets of hong kong and everywhere in between and beyond. You will follow me through every puncture, crash and fall. Through camping alone in the jungle to meeting african and amazonian tribes.

The funds will be used to pay for publishers, and video editors. It will also contribute to the cost of the trip such as costs of cameras, carnet, and emergencies. Anymore raised will allow for better publicity of the show and book and will hopefully encourage more people onto bikes. 

On an additional note, some of the money may be used for charity work along the way (help with building a house, school etc) along with me helping with the actual work. As well as this, any money left at the end of the trip and after publishing the book will be donated to a charity of which you the backers can decide via a vote. 

Risks and challenges

Due to the nature of the project, a number of challenges could arise such as mechanical issues with the bike, nothing which a bit of duct tape and a hammer couldnt fix :) i could have an accident, hopefully that doesnt happen but i will be careful anyway. I could be shot, mauled by tigers, fall off of a mountain etc. In short anything could happen but that just adds to the adventure.

I will have a gps beacon on me incase i am in serious trouble, but all tge supplies i have on me should be enough. A camera will document my trip and a blog will be kept to give a teaser for the book.
