Tales of a Fat Kid on a Bike - Ron Rutland

On 30 June 2013, after selling everything in the world he owned, (a 25kg heavier version) of Ron Rutland left the Cape Town stadium with his few remaining life possessions packed on his bicycle to embark on a lifelong dream of undertaking a 'big adventure' - 810 days, 75 countries, 42,000km, and a life time's worth of adventures later, Ron cycled into Brighton, England on the eve of the Rugby World Cup to support the Springboks.
