This man is running for office in the current India elections. His party’s logo is a bicycle so his Young and Brilliant campaign team put stickers all over my panniers. I told them the giant flag was too much.

The stickers soon fell off in the wind and heat. I wouldn’t vote for this man; he seemed nice enough but I wasn’t convinced that he had any, you know, “life skills”.

My name is James Bowthorpe. On the 29th March 2009 I set out from London to break the round the world cycling record. I am doing this to raise 1.8 million pounds for much needed research into the cause of Parkinson’s Disease. I have been preparing for this challenge for the last 6 months and now I’m on my way! You can follow my progress and see photos, on my blog.
