Biography:

On the 26th of September 2018, Leigh cycled in to the record books, becoming the fastest person to cycle across Europe in a time of 16 days 10 hours and 45 minutes. Cycling 14 hours per day, from the west coast of Portugal to the edge of Siberia, he broke the previous world record by an astonishing eight days and seven hours. 

This incredible achievement was built upon a unique and inspirational journey of self-discovery. In 2010, Leigh left the UK to cycle around the world on his epic, solo expedition of 44,000 miles over seven years, across 51 countries, and on a budget of only £5 per day. Pushing the limits of cycling and human endurance, he rode his bicycle in some of the most inhospitable places on Earth but also to some of the most magnificent.

Leigh’s life changing experiences have instilled within him a deep belief in the goodness and strength of humanity. Having struggled with depression in his mid-twenties, Leigh is an ambassador for MQ: Transforming Mental Health and is passionate about raising awareness of mental health.

Leigh’s exciting and moving stories of aspiration, self-motivation and survival have been published in the international and national press (ABC Australia, BBC, Daily Telegraph). Leigh has also made appearances on BBC television and radio as well as delivering talks for TEDx and National Geographic.
