“Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.”
I’ll be leaving Shanghai, China and over 5 months I plan to cycle 10,000 miles all the way back to Liverpool, England.
Well, my trusty two man tent (just so I can stretch my legs!) will be my home. I’ve planned to take a night in a hotel/hostel approximately every 14 days. I’ll need to charge my cameras/navigation/laptop and I’m guessing I might just need to shower!
I‘m Andrew Rogerson, a 29 year old from Liverpool who has an affinity for exciting, daring adventures, all to raise money for Leukemia and other blood cancer Charities.
Over the past few years, I’ve climbed the highest mountains in both Europe and Africa, as well cycling down the coast of Vietnam. Each trip has increased my thirst for adventure, which has eventually led to this, 10,000 mile cycle from Shanghai to Liverpool.
Thankfully, I‘ve got an understanding employer who’ve agreed to give me 5 months off work, sadly however, this means the trip has a very tight deadline.
I’ll be blogging my journey, feel free to follow for updates.
China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, UK For a large part of the trip, I’ll be cycling along the historical Silk Road, where I’ll be going up to 5 days without seeing anybody. That means no shops for water, for food, or for help. If something goes wrong, It’ll be totally up to me to figure it out. Planning is key! For these long terms away from everybody, I’m going to be carrying all the water and food with me.
