I’ve always loved being on two wheels. I rode a BMX until I was far too old for it to be cool, then I got into bicycle touring. I did several shorter tours then, in 2015, set off for a long ride – from Japan (where I had been living) back to the UK with my wife. We cycled across China, South East Asia, Central Asia and the ‘Stans’ then through Turkey into Europe. What better way to see the world than from the saddle. We did 15,000 miles and it took 2 years, arriving back in the UK in the summer of 2017, ready to start working with Freedom Treks.
