Sean Conway was stuck in a dead end life of his own making when he heard about a round-the-world cycling race. He was immediately inspired - but it was a huge undertaking, and he'd hardly been on a bike in years. Could he really cycle all the way round the world, solo and unsupported? Six months later, after completing a punishing training schedule and packing up everything he owned into boxes, Sean was in Greenwich Park, on the start line of the adventure of a lifetime.

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this life changing adventure. Not many people have the guts and motivation to go on such an extreme journey. All credit to Sean for telling it in such an interesting and descriptive manner
