Hello everyone I’m Tom Davies and I’m 19 years old (DOB: 1/10/1995). In January 2015 I’m going to attempt to become the youngest person to cycle around the world and raise money and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK, The Sohana Research Fund and Carney’s Community. What does this entail? In short, lots of hours pedalling until I’ve done a very big circle from London to London. I hope to complete this in around 200 days – which basically means 100 miles a day, with the odd day off for a bit of R&R (hopefully). I’ll do all I can to keep you informed on the many misfortunes I’m sure I’ll encounter along the way, and any support you can give me will be very well received.
Why am I doing this? Quite frankly I am yet to think of an answer to that question. But simply put: with a love of cycling and wanting to see the world, it seemed the obvious adventure (not many people agree with me on that – but yeh, it’s happening). I also wanted to give myself a proper challenge, to see what I was capable of, before heading off to uni. Anyway, please follow me on this website, Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else I find time to update and hopefully I can keep you entertained!
On a serious note, all three charities, whilst different, are extremely good causes and well worth your support. To further this, both myself and the charities would be very grateful for any support you could give them. For more detail click here: The Charities
