On the 17th of June 2007, Tom Allen and Andrew Welch set out from their homes in England, in an attempt to bike round the world. The entire planet? Why?
Their aim is to have and inspire others to have a great adventure, promote mountain biking as a lifestyle and mode of sustainable transport, and provide coverage for their charities whose work aims to help create a sustainable and environmentally-stable future for the planet and the human race.
