Man rides around entire world on a unicycle

21-year-old Ed Pratt from the UK completed the epic 21,000-mile challenge within approximately 40 months.
As if travelling around the entire world on a regular bicycle wasn't enough of a challenge, Ed has managed to achieve the impossible by doing the whole thing on a unicycle.

His journey began in March 2015 near Taunton, Somerset.

The trip, which took 16 months longer than expected due to icy roads and other obstacles, helped to raise a whopping $400,000 for the School in a Bag charity which supplies educational equipment to vulnerable children in countries around the world.

"He left school in search of a challenge and adventure," said Ed's parents.

"Anyone who has followed his journey around the world will know that he has created just that."

Saw this on the news. Good for him, only 19 when he started out.  He has got something great to tell his grandchildren one day.

If so, was he pedaling all over the ship to cover the distance the ships were making?  Only fair.

Exactly! Park him on a treadmill cause he has 10k more to go.

With her luck, she would start reporting low air pressure in her tire while Noonan, on her shoulders, is trying to chart their location, thinking they're close to a gas station...
