James Ketchell is certainly up for a challenge. Doctors told him he may never walk again after a serious motorbike accident that left him with two broken legs and a badly smashed ankle. James defied the odds and has since rowed solo across the Atlantic, summited Everest and is currently on an unsupported world cycle.
On 30th June 2013, James embarked on an 18,000 mile unsupported global cycle. The journey will be completed in 6 months, with James averaging over 100 miles a day. James will be tweeting and blogging his way around the world, whilst cycling through over 20 countries. James is raising funds for Hampshire-based charity ELIFAR (www.elifarfoundation.org.uk) which supports families with disabled children.
We believe he will be the only person to have completed all three feats when he returns from his global cycle at the end of the year.
