Curry Rivel's Round the World Unicyclist Ed Pratt marked two years on the road for School in a Bag on the 14th March 2017.
Two years on and Ed Pratt, now 21, has made it as far as the Far East , in his 24 months of riding across Europe and Asia on his unicycle, Ed has raised more than £9,500 for School in a Bag, enabling schoolchildren from across the developing world to enjoy school equipment they otherwise wouldn't have.
Ed has a new fundraising target of £18,000, which would make his epic 18,000 mile journey worth 1p a mile.
Having made it through China, and then into Vietnam and Laos, Ed's current focus is blitzing the route Bangkok to meet up with his sister Sam. Posting on his official Facebook page, he said: "Just picked up my 60 day visa for Thailand. Now for the 'minor' challenge of unicycling the 420 miles to Bangkok in 12 days in time for my sister's arrival in the capital. Should be very doable, just need to crack on with the miles."
