The Next Adventure
Life does not wait for you to make your mind up. The longer it takes to make a decision, the further away goals get. I've spent a while deliberating what my next challenge might be. Deliberating, but not deciding, not acting. All while, those pesky life amb...

Speed reading that might actually work! But what pleasure is derived from racing towards the end of a book?

Story
Tagline
Trainee Arctic adventurer. Cycled from London to Sydney for War Child. Public speaker. Writer. Show off.
Introduction
Life is too short not to do what you love. Most people know it, they feel it in the core of their being, yet so few act upon it. I like to think am one of those few.

After long deliberation (and some wine) I have boiled my list of loves down to three specific things:

  • Raising money for War Child
  • Partaking in exciting adventures and challenges
  • Writing

I've written an account of my cycle from London to Sydney for the blog: The Cycle Diaries and as a columnist for The Telegraph Travel website (See the links to articles below).

In-between concocting new adventures and writing The Cycle Diaries book I perform talks about my adventures and raise money for War Child.
Bragging rights
Cycled to Australia from London. Have helped raise over £30'000 for +warchild and have written for www.thecyclediaries.com and The Saddle Saga series of columns for +telegraph travel blog. I have spoken at The Adventure Travel show and been featured in Men's Fitness Magazine
