Tzuo finished his ride home around the world from California to Malaysia!

What a great journal to read as it unfolded, truly an epic journey.

I thought it was really cool that George here on Bikeforums was able to ride with him the last few weeks of Tzuo's tour. Wish I could have been there!

Congrats!

Well done Tzou.

it was an honour and a priveledge to have first put him up at my house in the Uk and then to ride the last 3 weeks with him.
The last 3 days were a bit crazy as 55 people and full support wagons etc were with us, and we had to wear uniform shirts.

I left him about 8 days ago and am cycling around malaysia, beautiful, and will neet him In Kuala Lumpur in about a week.

yeah.... woah is the word....

freaking too many people and too many cars and it was a lot more stressful than wondering if george was knocked out from alcohol poisoning or something.

either way... its quite a shock to go from cycling to figuring out how to run a charity
but its good, leaves me with no time to feel depressed and all that.

Heh Tzuo,

Been following your trip with great interest in CGOAB. I dont have to tell you what a remarkable young man you are. You have a storehouse of stories to share I'm sure from your amazing travels.

Fm all of us tourers in neighbouring Spore, congrats and well done! Malaysia truly boleh la.

Al - fellow Surly LHT
