Cycling the 6

A charity ride around the world

Social media has really helped promote cycle touring, push the envelope and has become a major vehicle for creating awareness. Here are a noteworthy adventure and cause by Stephen Fabes.

St Thomas’ Hospital forecourt, London, Tuesday the 5th of January 2010, Steve said cheerio to loved ones and then started pedaling – he will be pedaling for the next 1700 days. Steve’s lonely migration east began in Europe and then Africa but will eventually see him travel by bicycle the length of six of the earth’s continents in a mammoth five-year expedition during which he will cycle a distance equivalent to twice the circumference of the earth.

Steve will trace a route through regions affected by the Neglected Tropical Diseases and will witness firsthand their effect on local populations. These are 14 largely ancient infectious diseases grouped together by the World Health Organization. Once widely dispersed, they now thrive in impoverished settings, especially in the heat and humidity of tropical climates.

To invest this hare-brained endeavor with some worthy purpose he’s also raising money for Merlin – the UK based medical aid charity.

Good luck, Steve.
