Laid Back Around the World in 180 days - Talk & slideshow
Tuesday, 20 January 2015 from 19:30 to 21:00 (GMT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We are delighted to announce an inspirational, fun talk to get us into gear for 2015: Laid Back Around the World in 180 days.
Our friend and colleague, Richard Evans, has enjoyed long distance cycling since his early teens. He reckons the older he gets the further he likes to cycle.
Richard cycled around the world on a recumbent bicycle, setting off from London in April 2014. He arrived in one piece six months later, having cycled 22,777 kilometres across 4 continents and 18 countries.
There was no supporting team accompanying Richard in his ride around the world.He did it on his own, but met incredibly warm and kind people along the way. As you can imagine, there is a wealth of stories of people and places in such an unique journey. And Richard has picked the best anecdotes to share with us in this special evening.
Join us for the talk and slideshow Laid Back Around the World in 180 Days.
When - Tuesday 20 January 2015
What time – at 7.30pm
Where – Lecture Theatre (under the Kensington Central Library)
Since Richard has raised money for the charity RoadPeace as part of his trip, Bikeminded has decided to donate all the money from the tickets sold to the same charity. RoadPeace is a small charity, which looks after the bereaved and injured from road crashes and campaigns for safer streets. For more info about the charity please visit here.
If you can’t wait until the talk to find out more about Richard’s ride, you can check his blog here.
We look forward to seeing you at the talk.
