The video above shows Chris Astill-Smith travelling on his trusty Santander Cycle across America: hitting up New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco. From there he heads to Europe riding his bike around Rome and Paris, cycling past the Trevi Fountain and the Louvre.
Chris Astill-Smith, 24, spent three weeks pedalling across five countries and seven cites on the sturdy piece of kit, which he admitted was pretty ‘heavy’ to steer at times.
A one-minute-59-second YouTube video, shot by Chris’ friend and videographer Alex Tyrwhitt, documents some of his biking adventures.
Hey Everyone, I’m Chris and I just took a London Boris Bike around the world but not for the reason you might think. I’ll be swimming the English Channel solo in August 2017 and hope to raise £25,000 for Dreams Come True children’s charity.
