This incredible achievement was built upon a unique and inspirational journey of self-discovery. In 2010, Leigh left the UK to cycle around the world on his epic, solo expedition of 44,000 miles over seven years, across 51 countries, and on a budget of only £5 per day. Pushing the limits of cycling and human endurance, he rode his bicycle in some of the most inhospitable places on Earth but also to some of the most magnificent.
Leigh’s exciting and moving stories of aspiration, self-motivation and survival have been published in the international and national press (ABC Australia, BBC, Daily Telegraph). Leigh has also made appearances on BBC television and radio as well as delivering talks for TEDx and National Geographic.
