World Ride

In October 2013 Liz Dimmock sets out to cycle 18000 miles around the world in five months raising £1m for War Child. On top of that, she is hoping to beat the current world record for fastest circumnavigation of the globe by bicycle. It is awarded for completing a continuous journey around the globe by bicycle and other means, consisting of a minimum 24,900 miles (40,073 km) (the length of the Equator), of which at least 18,000 miles (28,968 km) must be cycled. I’m not sure if she is aiming for the overall record or just the womens’, either way it’s a bloody big ride and it will be cool to watch her progress. Unlike previous record breakers, Liz has some great support and backing, from Jaguar Cars to Rapha. This will make the possibility of setting a new record that bit more achievable, that is not to mean it’s easy in any way. Good luck and hope to bring more updates on this. Show your love over at her charity site here.
