Welcome to Cycling The Globe - a website about a 50.000 km solo bicycle adventure through 40 countries around the world.



Thomas Andersen, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Hi, my name is Thomas Andersen. In October 2010 I left Denmark by bicycle, not knowing what to expect. What followed was an epic journey.

I have cycled through Eastern Europe learning all about the local beer, I have been chased by dogs in Turkey. I have pedalled through Syria before the war began. I have been a celebrity in Malaysia, and worked on a huge cattle station in Australia.

In late 2013 I flew to Ushuaia in southern Argentina and I'm now cycling north towards Canada.

I hope you will enjoy your stay on this site. Come along by checking out the diary below, or perhaps the photos or videos.
