Departing from Buckingham Palace in London, Nick’s first stage of the route takes him across the Atlantic to North America. After riding east to west coasts, he travels through Mexico and down the full length of South America before crossing the Pacific to reach Australia. Every adventure has a twist and the COVID-19 pandemic puts the journey on hold. While waiting for safe passage, however, this bold rider has no intentions of stopping his journey! At the restart of his expedition he plans to depart from where he left off - Australia - crossing the country and the Coral Sea to Papa New Guinea, and from there into Asia and back to the Old Continent and home in the UK.
