London-based adventurer Tim Moss pedalled into London in June as he completed a six week, 1,018 mile rickshaw journey to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Great Britain (SOGB), which provides sports training and competition for people with learning disabilities. A team of rickshaw riders formed a guard of honour as Moss crossed the finishing line outside City Hall to break the world record for miles travelled.
Moss’s journey started in Aviemore, Scotland on 26 April and took a scenic route to London, visiting all of SOGB’s nineteen operating regions and meeting many of its athletes along the way.
On arriving in London Moss said: “I am glad the journey is over. There were some hard bits, especially in the Scottish Highlands. But it was fantastic to meet all the Special Olympics athletes and help create a bit of awareness for Special Olympics Great Britain.”
