GBG Presents Julian Sayarer, Inspirational, Record Breaking Cyclist & Author at AGM 21st May 201

AGM 2015 2.png

We are delighted to announce the speaker at our AGM that will take place on 21st of May 2015 at the Yacht Club. We are very lucky to have secured Julain Sayarer who, as well as breaking the record for cycling round the world in 2009, is a successful author and powerful campaigning voice on cycling issues.

Julian Sayarer rode a bicycle around the world. He did it in 169 days, through 20 countries, covering 18,049 miles at an average 110 miles a day. The achievement earned him a world record, but the book that tells the story - Life Cycles - isn't a story of records, and even the bicycle is kept as little more than the very special vehicle that powered this journey. Working as a cycle courier in London, Julian learns the world record for a circumnavigation has been broken in conjunction with banks and big business. Seeing the bicycle and open road reduced to only a corporate marketing strategy, he resolves to do things his own way, and to take back the record. The story runs from the streets of London, through insurrections in China, and to the trailer families of Louisiana. A snapshot of world politics by bicycle, Life Cycles is a 12mph view of the world at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It's a look at where we are, and sometimes, at how things could be different." Some more information here: http://juliansayarer.com also http://thisisnotforcharity.com

Please put the date in your diary and we hope to see you there for what will be a fun and interesting evening. We'll also have our AGM at the same time. More details on our Facebook event page
