Triumph rider becomes youngest person to ride solo around the world

A Triumph rider has officially become the youngest person to circumnavigate the world solo by motorcycle.

 

 

English adventurer and record holder, Kane Avellano, received his Guinness World Record certificate after travelling over 32,000 miles in just under eight months on his Triumph Bonneville.

 

The 23-year-old travelled through over 35 different countries and six continents, all whilst raising over £2,200 for UNICEF, the world’s leading charity organisation working for children in danger.

 

The youngest person to complete the challenge alone, Kane faced many dangerous situations, including torrential monsoons in India, blistering desert rides in Australia, powerful stormsin South America and freezing weather in Europe.

 

Kane, who arrived home from the trip in early 2017, said: “The past eight months have been the most exciting in my life. I had the chance to discover what the world really has to offer, tomeet many different people along the way and explore their cultures, religions and behaviours, while having an incredible time.

 

“This will be the first motorcycle circumnavigation to be verified by Guinness in 14 years and I’m really pleased it was done on my Triumph – it’s a bike I’ve shared lots of memories with and was the perfect bike for the job, albeit not your conventional adventure bike.”
