My name is Stewart. I am English, aged 48, and for 5 years I lived and, prior to starting this cycle tour, worked in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

In July 2016, I gave up work to spend 12 months in the saddle as I embarked on a world cycle tour. The aim of this website is to chronicle this journey – the planning, the equipment and probably most importantly the journey itself.

In preparation for this journey I did not set out to reinvent the wheel and relied on the advice of other people who are either currently pedaling their own way around the world or are back home planning their next adventure.

My planned route takes me through 27 countries, across 4 continents, and I will cover somewhere in the region of a mind boggling 15,000 km during my 12 months in the saddle. As I was living in Vietnam then this was the starting point for my cycle tour.

Latest updates from the road

I have now been on the road for 7 months and have pedaled over 11,000 km through 3 continents, visiting 13 countries en route - Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia (Bali, Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara/Sumbawa, East Nusa Tenggara/Flores), New Zealand, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile and Oman (plus brief visits to Panama and Turkey).

It has been an amazing adventure so far and after spending a blissful 3 months in South America on the 12th of March 2017 I flew to Oman in the Middle East.

After a fantastic month of cycling through Oman (a truly amazing experience on every level) I have now crossed the border into The United Arab Emirates, and currently cycling through the desert towards Dubai.

What I have enjoyed the most about this trip so far is that everyday on the bike brings new unexpected adventures. Each country that I have cycled through has had its own highlights. In Asia the stars were the amazing people I met along the way, and in New Zealand it was breathtaking scenery which took centre stage while in South America the highlight was cycling over the Andes Mountains.
