"A journey of 1000 miles does not start with a single step, it begins with an idea..."

Expedition1000 is the project that gave me a solid identity around which to shape my life and adventure career around: twenty-five journeys, each one a minimum of 1000 miles in distance, each one using a different form of non-motorised transport.

Designed as a huge, ambitious chance to push limits, educate, explore and do some good stuff along the way, this is a true global adventure with a total distance equivalent to the circumference of the Earth around the Equator.

As of writing (February 2017) I've completed 12 of these journeys, covering over 20,000 miles in the process. Click the relevant journey to find out more.
