October 2011 - With no training, Josh cycled top to bottom of the UK (960 miles) by himself, averaging 100 miles a day, unsupported and camping in a small “bivvy style” tent.

“These adventures are an overwhelming privilege, it’s important to recognise the help and support of others around you to take on such a project but it’s also very important to recognise the impact we have on the environment and how we can limit our affect? The Foot Print Free ethos resonates perfectly with this.”
