Hello World, welcome to my website!!!
My name is Garry McGivern.
I’m planning to cycle from Bognor Regis on the South Coast of England to Brisbane, Australia.
I lost my wife to breast cancer in 2007 aged only 42, and I am embarking on this trip in her memory to try and raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK.
I will be leaving Bognor Regis on 29th October 2011 and hope to arrive in Brisbane Australia around May/June 2012.
The route I will be taking will take me through Europe and into Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, China, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Australia.
I have set up this website so people can follow my progress, I hope you enjoy the ride!!!

And, of course, you can always follow me on social media: Facebook, X, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest. I’m also on Flickr, where I’ll publish the photos from each country as I pass through them.
You can also follow my progress and see where I stop each night by visiting the Where’s Garry web page; there, you’ll find a map of the route I’ve taken so far.
