Thank you for all your support
I was completely new to cycle touring when I set out on this tour and cycling is not even my hobby, so this is my first ever attempt at touring and I'm not doing bad. Not being a regular cyclist, I found it very painful and a completely alien experience, but I have adapted.
I am completely self-funding this adventure through working hard my entire life, and I am travelling solo and unsupported.
My support comes from knowing that I have so many people behind me on this and because I'm supporting this great charity, so thank you all.
All the money donated goes straight to JUMP, I receive nothing from JUMP and receive nothing from any of the donations, so please give what you can.
As a solo cycling traveller I would have to say that the physical side is maybe around the 30-40% if that, and the rest is simply mental :)
What adds to the adventure to me, is that I don't have a planned cycle route, other than I'm going East. I only have target cities or points in mind.
Taking each day as it comes, not knowing where I am sleeping, eating, or what is in front of me, is real adventure. There have been times when I have had to drag my bike into the bushes to wild camp because there was nothing else.
I have had to ask people who were outside their homes if I could please have water because my bottles were empty with no shop in sight, and never once have I been refused.
As of 25 May 2018, I have cycled 5680 km's through 8 countries, and I'm no heading to Mumbia to cycle India South West Monsoon for nearly 2000 km's.
Thanks to all I have met along the way, who have kindly donated to my chosen charity JUMP and given me a smile to make my day.
So stay tuned :))
Please donate anything you can, to this truly great little charity.
Many thanks to you all.
