Paul is proud to support Lupus sufferers worldwide
Paul Spencer, is the current Guinness World Record holder for the fastest cylcle across Europe. He cycled from North Cape, Norway to Tarifa Spain in 22 days. Smashing the old record of 39 days! On his three week adventure Paul cycled over 4,000 miles travelling through Norway, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, France and Spain. Paul cycled to raise awareness and money for Lupus UK and Lupus Foundation of America. He was sponsored by Kimberly Clark Professional.
Although it is possible to drive from North Cape Norway through Sweden and across to Denmark it is not possible to cycle across the bridges to do so. This means the only way to cycle is to travel via Russia (visa now confirmed!)
So Paul's route will take him from North Cape, Norway south through Finland into Russia, where he will travel solo via Saint Petersburg to avoid the complications of extra visas for his team and documents for the camper.
He will then meet with them again in Estonia and continue through Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic Germany, France and to his final destination of Tarifa, Spain!!
STAGE 1: North Cape, Norway to St. Petersburg, Russia 1,660 km
STAGE 2: St Petersburg, Russia to Geneva, Switzerland 2,902 km
STAGE 3: Geneva, Switzerland to Tarifa, Spain 1,909 km
Throughout all of his cycling endeavours Paul supports Lupus UK and the Lupus Foundation of America. Through his adventures Paul has raised thousands of pounds for research into better lives for Lupus sufferers.
