David Haywood's World by Bike
On September 3rd 2018 I set off from my home in Surrey, on the outskirts of London, England in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe on my bike, riding 18,000 miles / 29,000km over a period of 10 months.
So far I've covered over halfway around the world, pedalling from London to Lisbon, from New York to Toronto, to Chicago and all the way along Route 66 to Los Angeles. Then I rode down the length of New Zealand, and up the east coast of Australia before commencing my Asian leg of the journey northwards from Singapore.
I'm setting up this page as a few incredibly kind people who have enjoyed following along on this trip either on the daily Instagram stories and posts, the Facebook page daily recaps or reading the blog on my website, and they have asked whether they can contribute to me personally to keep me going, alongside my fundraising for IJM UK.
I am roughly spending around the same as a couple cups of Starbucks coffee to get me through each day, or about the same as one pint of beer on South Bank, and riding as far as 290km in a day, and 150km around my riding average. So if you're enjoying the content, want to help me move another day closer to home, or want to help me avoid a night in a tent at the side of the road, I've set up an easy way to do that.
If people should choose to give, any left over money will be donated to IJM UK and their fight against modern slavery.
I'm more than grateful for people's kind words, comments and encouragements on social media but as people have made requests, I have set up this page.
