The race begins and ends in Greenwich Park, London. The current record of 164 days is held by race organizer Vin Cox. Jason will pass through Northern Europe, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, and the USA, before ending back in the UK to witness the start of the London Olympics in 2012.
The 24-year-old British racer left London on February 18, 2012, with a goal of riding 130 miles a day and travelling 18,000 miles across the globe. “My project is extremely eco-conscious, Jason says, I am riding a recycled bicycle and all of my international flights will be carbon offset. I intend to promote cycling to those that follow my adventure as an important form of sustainable transport that as residents of this planet we should all strive to use for journeys of less than five miles, in doing so protecting the delicate eco-system in which we have made our homes.”
