Charity Cyclist Is Japan Bound

Nathan Jones: West Country to Far East by bike

An intrepid cyclist is attempting to travel 19,312km to Tokyo on two wheels, the Bristol Evening Post reported on 4 January.

Nathan Jones, 25, is using pedal power on his daunting adventure half way around the world from South Gloucestershire. He set himself the solo challenge to raise money for the charity Friends of Alalay, which supports Bolivian street children.

Jones left his home village of Doynton, near Wick, on 19 September. Since then, he has suffered a knee injury, fallen into a river and, in Istanbul, been knocked off his bike by a car.
