Cycling Beyond Berlin

We live in the future. To prove this I only have to say three words: mosquito repellent clothing. My boyfriend, Tom, and I have just started our cycle tour around the world, and countries that are considered to be a high-risk malaria zone are on our itinerary.

An epic endeavour that aims to raise at least £1 a mile for Hope and Homes for Children.
