How It All Began
LONDON 2 NYC
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, a camera and the memories of my past…
I’m Rob Lutter, a photographer & 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.
