The long-distance cyclist - Jeremy Scott

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 27 March 2014

From London to Nelson and everywhere in between, an Auckland man is nearing the end of a three-year odyssey around the world and he's done it all on two wheels. Jeremy Scott worked as a draftsman in England for ten years before departing to return home in 2011 on a bicycle. His journey took him to 29 countries, through Europe, the Middle East, the heart of Asia, Japan, Indonesia, and Australia before setting foot back in Christchurch on the 4th of February. It was a 50,000-kilometre ride by a man who, at the age of only four, went through open heart surgery.
