In March 2012, I left my home in Gloucestershire, UK, to cycle around the world. I have no idea how long this will take ...

How much has the trip cost?

After 20 months I had spent roughly £4000 ($6500). That includes all living costs, bike maintenance, visa fees etc… Cycling as a way of travel is extremely cheap. No transport costs and often no living costs given the frequency of invitations. Plus, a bicycle takes you to the cheapest places in a country.
