Story

Please sponsor me on my journey down the Greenwich Meridian, from Greenwich until the Meridian leaves Europe half way down Spain. All proceeds go to securing Rainforest to be saved in perpetuity.

The challenge is called 'Double Zero' because I will always travel on the very closest road to the Greenwich Meridian (the Zero or 'Prime' Meridian), and produce no emissions on my way (ok, i will exhale...)

I will accomplish this by cycling from Greenwich to Newhaven Harbour (the nearest harbour to where the Meridian leaves the UK), then sailing to Le Harvre (the nearest harbour in France), then cycling the whole way to just south of Denia in Spain, where the Meridien leaves Europe south to Africa. The only exceptions I will make is that I will avoid motorways, and I will not go backwards (except where impossible not to) to stay on the closest road....

Thank you!
