Ed Pratt, 22, from Curry Rivel, after three years on the road, will be the first person ever to unicycle around the world. Ed has just made his way across the USA, finishing in New York City on Tues 3rd June 2018.
Due back at 11.30am on Fri 27th July, Ed left the School in a Bag HQ in Chilthorne Domer, near Yeovil, on 14th March 2015 aged just 19. Now, more than 20,000 miles later, Ed has so far raised over £300,000 for School in a Bag, who deliver educational equipment to poor and vulnerable children around the world.
Ed has unicycled unsupported through Europe, then on to Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, across the vast country of China and down through South East Asia to Singapore. He then tackled Australia and New Zealand before moving on to the USA. He flew from New York to Edinburgh in early July before starting his final leg, cycling the last 500 miles through the UK, back home to Somerset.
