I guess I should start with a little bit about me... My name is Henry, I'm 22 years old and from the south of England. I have been obsessed with motorcycles from a young age and since passing my test in 2013 I have ridden almost every day. I love a good challenge and travelling the world by motorcycle seems like a great way to combine these two things.
The World record
The world record currently stands at 23 years and 365 days old. The record comprises a few rules which have to be adhered to in order for the record to be authenticated, these include; Travelling more than 24,500 miles and reaching specific destinations on opposite sides of the planet.
The Movember Foundation is a charity that focuses on men's health issues; specifically prostate cancer and mental health. They have an existing connection with the motorcycle community through The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride, which I have taken part in three times now. Their work is vital to the reduction of male suicide and deaths from cancer that could have been avoided, if detected sooner.
