News from the road:


Guinness World Record!
Finished at Greenwich 15:21 hours BST on Sunday 1st August 2010.
 

Welcome! I'm Vin Cox, champion cyclo-cross racer, mountain biker, mountaineer, long distance trekker, and new holder of the Guinness World Record for circumnavigating the world by bicycle. 18,225.7 miles through 17 countries in 163 days, 6 hours, 58 minutes.

My Great Bike Ride was my world trip around the world. I hope it can inspire you all to go for your own Great Bike Ride.

Vin Cox world record holder!
Charity: The Geoff Thomas Foundation
Visit the Geoff Thomas Foundation

In 2003, Geoff Thomas, the ex-England and Crystal Palace footballer was diagnosed with leukaemia. A bone marrow transplant saved his life. Other blood cancer sufferers arenít so lucky. Thatís where the Geoff Thomas Foundation is trying to help.

Geoff is an inspiration across sport, charity, and cancer survival. In 2005 Geoff got on his bike and cycled the 3,500km of the Tour de France route. He was recognised for his charity work with the BBC Sports Personality Helen Rollason Award. Raising money for the Geoff Thomas Foundation will motivate Vin on the toughest days of the Great Bike Ride. Please click here to give generously.

Coming soon: a race...

In 2012 Vin Cox will organise the first ever race around the world using the experience from his 2010 record attempt and also experience of organising many smaller events. If you're interested, please contact him.
