I took a 200 kilometre detour off my planned route across Uzbekistan to visit a place a friend had told me about called “The Ships’ Graveyard”. Sounded intriguing. It was insanely hot and there were crazy strong headwinds for the first day but it was SO worth it. Definitely one of the highlights of my… Continue reading The story of the sea that disappeared…
So, the blue mosque in central Istanbul wasn’t quite the finish line for continent number 1…this was last night! Enjoy this 3 minute video of me touching the water reaching the end of Europe. Enjoy the bonus footage of some sights and sounds of Istanbul too! My challenge (snappily called the #7ContinentsWorldCycle) is to cross… Continue reading REACHING THE END OF CONTINENT NO.1 OF 7 – EUROPE 🙂
This is what the Greek border guard said to me when I rocked up at his window on my bike in my superhero costume last night. I now judge how friendly a country is going to be by the initial conversation with the border guard (it’s been a pretty good guide so far) and the… Continue reading “YASSOO MY FRIEND!”
That time Dave and I sneaked onto Serbian TV! Can you slip this little 6 minute video into your Saturday night plans? Go on! It’s worth it I promise, as you’ll get to see: my mug on Serbian TV Dave the Worm doubling up as a microphone (he’s such a talented worm!) and my reaction… Continue reading SuperCyclingMan on Serbian TV

Watch this fully subtitled interview on Serbian TV here —> https://youtu.be/Cg3F61I3mTI Thanks to the brilliant bike hostel… Continue reading DAVE AND I SNEAKED ON TO SERBIAN TV! 🙂
I am now almost fluent in Hungarian…for saying the words “thank you”, “Cheers” and the best thing is “goodbye” is szia, which is pronounced very similar to “See ya!” Even I can remember that! It’s my last day in Hungary today 🙁 I’ve stayed with some SUPER nice Warmshowers families the last two nights … Continue reading SEE YOU (SZIA) HUNGARY!
To see a 3 minute video of me eating a chimney cake (or Kürtőskalács as it’s called in Hungary) watch this short video clip here. It was my last night in Budapest last night. Sure, I could have gone to one of the many spas or taken a boat cruise up and down the Danube, but I… Continue reading HAVE YOU TRIED EATING A CHIMNEY CAKE?
In this picture there is an animal that is travelling steadily but surely from A to B, lugging around everything that they need with them… …and there’s a snail. Ha! See what I did there!? Progress has been very ‘slugglish’ (I can’t help it now) this last week whilst have been staying in a house… Continue reading WHAT ANIMAL ARE YOU…AND WHY?
Before I pedalled out of Bratislava (very cool city and super nice people), I did an interview with a Slovakian newspaper about my ‘7 Continents World Cycle’. I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what is written apart from the words “Christopher Reeve”, “Brit”, “Will Hodson” and “38”, but it was a load of fun mucking around… Continue reading SLOVELY SLOVAKIA
So, do you remember that Shimano #BELIEVE competition I badgered you all about a while ago to get me as many votes as possible for my video entry? Well, all those “Likes” did eventually turn into a bike, a load of kit, a global breakdown assistance service from Shimano…and also a house…in Hungary. Let me… Continue reading HOW YOU (YES YOU!) HELPED ME TO GET A HOUSE IN HUNGARY
