Episode 3 - Henry Brydon

In episode 3 we hear from my mate Henry Brydon. Much like myself, Henry quit his 'boring' job in search of adventure. Raising over £100,000 for charity, he cycled nearly 40,000 kilometers from London all the way to SYDNEY, before starting his online adventure company ,We Are Explorers. Take a listen for some awesome stories that are guaranteed to get you on your bike!
