About Me


My current mission is to save money to complete my cycle to Singapore from the UK for charity. Check my site if you like the Idea.


I like, mountain biking, History, Current affairs, Reagae and a load of other music, I have grown up all over the UK and have just started cycling from the UK to Singapore.


I want everyone to be happy and have a fair shot at life. we should all try and help each other as much as possible. I dont think i can really claim to have a philosophy yet.

I like these quotes:

"History is a pack of lies we play on the dead."

"It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong."

"If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it." Julius Caesar,
