PRESS & MEDIA

Gaining coverage of my attempt to cycle around world is extremely important to aid my efforts to raise awareness and funds for the charities I've chosen to work with. Since starting my campaign I have been in contact with various press and media outlets to highlight my journey and to talk about the life-changing work Re-Cycle and Cyclists Fighting Cancer are doing.

If you're interested in speaking to me, or someone at the charities, for an interview or further details on my trip and fundraising efforts, please email travelling.on.tread.com or use the contact form to get in touch.

Craig's challenge to cycle around the world for two UK charities comes to an unexpected halt in South America because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Stuck under strict lockdown conditions in Argentina for 2 months now, it's unclear when he will be able to continue again. Despite this, he's remaining optimistic and has chosen to stay in Argentina until it's safe to continue his trip.
