hello people.

My name is Michael, i'm 28 and from the UK

I'm planning on doing a bit of a bike ride and although in some ways the idea appeals to me, i'd rather not do alone.
I plan to cycle from the southernmost tip of south america all the way up to alaska. depending on the route this will be about 17,000 miles.
i am aiming to leave about the start of december of this year and it should take anywhere between 6-8 months.
if this appeals to you in any way then send me an e-mail at -snip- and we can discuss it further. also if you happen to know anybody that may be interesting in such an undertaking then please put them in contact with me.
i can promise you adventure, big skies and a sore bum (from the bike seat)

cheers
