Because it is There

An update on Kevin Shannon’s progress
As you may already know, we at Exantia are always up for supporting a good cause, and so we have been sponsoring Kevin Shannon’s round-the-world, zero-emissions trip, which began in March 2010. The aim of the trip is threefold: to raise awareness of climate change, promote eco-friendly travel, and raise money for Combat Stress, a charity that helps veterans recover from the psychological wounds of war.

Kevin began his trip by setting off from his home in Cheshire and cycling down to Plymouth (which already sounds daunting enough to most of us!). From there he sailed to France, where he has been cycling south-east. He is currently in Saint-Yvone, and next he will loop across to Italy, up through Austria and the Czech Republic and into Poland, before picking up an eastern trajectory once more. Some of the rules of the expedition are that he must cross every line of longitude, cross the equator at least twice, and travel through at least two antipodal points. Of course, this being a ‘zero-emissions’ journey, the most important rule is that he can travel using only human and wind power.

So far he has suffered everything from run-of-the-mill punctures to slightly more bizarre setbacks such as dogs stealing his toothbrush – but he’s got a long way to go yet. The total journey will take him across five continents and two oceans, of which he will cycle over 40,000 miles and sail approximately 10,000 miles; he won’t get back to his own bed in Cheshire for close to three more years.

Kevin has been writing a blog and updating his website with interesting insights into his gruelling journey and photos he has taken along the way. Check out www.becauseitisthere.co.uk to read more about Kevin’s expedition.
