22 year old Harry Crew is setting out to topple a world record and become the youngest man to ever circumnavigate the globe on a motorcycle. And even better, he’s doing it to raise awareness for testicular cancer.
Crew’s journey will take him 35,000 miles through 35 countries on six continents in his attempt to make the run faster than Kane Avellano, who did it at the age of 24 in 233 days. While on the road, Crew will be telling men to check their balls and be aware of testicular cancer. This kind of ground-level organizing is some of our favorite stuff, and we’ll be following Crew on his wild motorcycle trip.
He’ll be riding a Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled motorcycle with a few minor modifications, including the addition of a rear luggage rack, fly screen, and engine guards. He’ll srart off in the UK and then head into central Europe, east through Russia, over the water from Malaysia to Australia, and from there to Chile and up through the Americas. He hopes to raised £35,000 – a pound for every mile ridden – for British testicular cancer charities. The ride will be rough, but he seems ready to tackle it with vigor.
