Rob Lutter's epic journey around the world by bicycle

The rain lashed down, driven by autumn winds, as I struggled free of London, everything I owned strapped to the back of a bicycle on the first day of what would become a forty thousand kilometre, four year journey around the earth. The year was 2O11, I was alone, unsupported and afraid, riding east into the unknown with my tent, camera and the memories of my past…

I’m Rob Lutter, a photographer and writer from England and this is The Lifecycle. A challenge to circumnavigate the world without a support crew, carrying all I need to survive on the bicycle and heading always east, flying only between continents, until I reach London again.

The bicycle had been my escape route from a lifelong battle with OCD and depression. But now, after three years on the road, the adventure has grown into a global charity challenge to help those still trapped by mental health. In Year One we raised over $2OOO for WaterAid. Now I’m cycling for charities Mind and OCDuk who support children suffering from mind disorders.

My first night in Georgia was spent behind a small petrol station, on the grass, beneath a tree, beside a pond with some ducks on it. The roads entered forest the next day, along the coast, through rundown cities, left over from the soviet era.
