British motorcyclist has become the youngest person to ride solo across the globe on a motorcycle. Kane Avellano of South Shields has travelled over 32,000 miles/45,000 kms over a period of 8 months during which time he visited 36 countries in 6 continents.
Kane interacted with local people in each of these countries, learnt about their cultures and habits and though he had to face many difficulties across the way, he enjoyed every moment of the journey. He was especially troubled by the monsoons in India, heat across the Australian deserts and storms in South America but battled these vagaries of nature in a competent manner.
During the course of the journey, it was the sight of starving children, their exposure to violence, disease, hunger and war that moved Kane. His thoughts of his own brothers what they would have done in similar situations moved Kane and used this journey as an opportunity to raise money to make a difference in the lives of these children.
Kane has raised £2,2000 via his ‘Just Giving’ page which is well over 200% of his original target. This 8 month journey has also allowed him to receive a Guinness World Record certificate for being the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe on a motorcycle.
Having completed this feat, Kane now looks ahead to his next adventure which he hopes will involve flying that will make him the youngest person to circumnavigate the world solo both by land and air.
