I have done it, I have cycled around the world on a singlespeed bike. From 3 September 2015 till 27 August 2016 I covered 34,097 kilometres trough 26 countries, all on the same gear. I had a lot of fun, I had good and bad days, I met wonderful people along the way.
If you would like to know more about the trip, I recommend watching the video above. If you would like to speak to me about the trip, please get in touch here.

And finally. Why singlespeed? Why not? I have a huge passion for adventure cycling, it has given me the life I love with many superb friends across the globe. At the same time my appetite for simplicity and endurance has developed, and since I took a one speed bike to Germany I have continued to tour on that, cycled Land’s End to John o’Groats, climbed mountain passes in Scotland, finished the Highland Trail 550, Strathpuffer and Relentless 24, all on one very fine gear.
