Hi, I'm Jimmy! I'm an 19 year old guy from Adelaide, Australia. And on April 21st 2018 I intend to attempt to cycle around the world on my push bike!
To cycle around the world it requires cycling 29,000km and if I manage to achieve this I will become the youngest person to ever complete the journey! -- I believe this journey will take me 9-12 months to complete.
Due to losing my beloved Gran to Motor Neurone Disease (MND), I have decided to dedicate my ride around the world to raising money for this cause. Through the help of MND Australia - www.mndaustralia.org.au I will be collecting donations along my way in order to help with the research to find a cure and also in the assistance and help of people that are living with the disease today.
I have set myself the challenge of raising a dollar for every kilometre I ride – aiming for $29,000 raised by the time I complete my journey.
