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

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
At about 9:30pm on Saturday night, I finally reached beautiful Budapest! It had been a looooong day. Over 11 hours on the road covering over than 160km. Fortunately I hadn’t been on my own all day. I had some company in the form of four German guys – Philipp, Philipp, Philipp and Philipp. Only joking.… Continue reading FEELIN’ HUNG(A)RY!
