My name is Rupert Beharrell. On 10th May 2015 I left my home in North London to cycle to Istanbul. I am not trying to set any records or achieve some feat of athleticism – I just enjoy enjoy cycling and wild camping and I am at liberty to take an extended holiday that involves the two.  Hopefully I’ll have a few tales to tell by the end of this trip and you’ll be able to read all about them on this blog.

Any quetions or suggestions are more than welcome; you can reach me at rmb3223@gmail.com
