In October 2015 I started cycling from Greece, on a folding electric bicycle, with the goal to ride around the world: 4 continents & 33 countries, within one year... Well, one year and 8500 km later, I am in Peru (South America). Having passed through Europe and the U.S.A. I decided to slow down and enjoy! Click→

I would like to thank all the wonderful people that I had met this year. The ones who hosted me, guided me and spent joyful time with me!
🚴🏻 What A.W.E.S.O.M.E stands for? 🚀
I’m a 26-year-old Greek guy named Angelos (Α), embarking on a 4 continent (W), 33 country and 60 week (0) adventure. Getting along by e-bike (Ε) plus the odd train/ airplane/ ferry/ bus/ truck, all the while sleeping mainly and hopefully in local’s houses (S). I have a specific goal (E): to explore our planet. Meet-understand-accept diversity, rediscover myself, explore faith and go to 10 schools around the world to conduct research for my dissertation in Education. Diving into the unknown, one could say is (M)agical!
🙌 Countries I 've been so far 🌈
Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, France, USA (did the Atlantic Coast, from Boston to Miami), Colombia, Ecuador, Peru.
To my knowledge this is the first attempt for a tour around the world on a folding bicycle. Also, I couldn't find someone who have succeeded in going around the world on an e-bike. Just saying
🍻 Have fun, go ride and... stay tuned 😊
