My name is Alex. I am 19 and have just started university; I flit between living in Oxford and Manchester, UK but was born in Kensington, MD. If you hadn’t worked it out this is my blog about cycling, adventures and my charity work. Feel free to like, share and comment on my posts to let me know what you think.
I generally write about cycle-touring; advice, adventures, photography and reviews. My first major journey was trekking 300km across the Sahara desert in 2010. Since then I have organised and completed a range of events and challenges raising over £10,000 for charity.
My largest cycle-tour so far was with Tom Priestner, across 8 european countries covering 3000 kilometres, and I have just published my first book about this adventure. I am currently planning to be the youngest person to cycle unsupported from Alaska to Mexico, along the Pacific Coast, in the summer of 2015. Please follow my blog for updates on how I am getting on and what I am up to.
If you are thinking of getting into cycle-touring and have some questions or are simply seeking some tips, I would be more than happy to help you out. Either comment on a post or contact me here. Keep on pedalling!
