Falklands Veteran Rob Graham left his beloved Wales in 2013 in a bid to cycle to the other side of the world. The true story tells how he finds himself a target for muggers, witnesses the reality of human kindness and pushes his body beyond the realms of physical endurance; all in his quest for adventure.
Combining the adventure with a challenge, he attempts to cycle 20,000 kilometres, through 20 countries in just 10 months. Never one to take the easy option he rides solo and unsupported also. It’s a challenge many told him couldn’t be done and where there were numerous reasons why he might fail.
An inspirational tale of self-discovery, it is full of humour; danger, conflict and an abundance of adventures.
Along the way, he is confronted by his past and meets an array of colourful characters.
