Robbo Johnson is a native Welshman who has lived an extraordinary life so far. At age 14 Robbo already took part in an expedition to the North Pole due to winning a school contest. When his children where all grown up, Robbo started living in 2 tipi’s in the mountains of Snowdonia and for a while he experienced ultimate freedom and a deep connection with his surroundings. A band of local vandals decided that it was not very desirable for Robbo to live this way so they burned down his tipi’s. Shocked by so much resistance to his way of life, Robbo decided he would be better of traveling the world. With nothing more than an extendend “long John” Bicycle and the equivalent of 50 Euro’s Robbo set of on his journey. In 11 years Robbo has traversed more than 120.000 Km.

During this adventure Robbo has helped thousands of people. He has singlehandedly collected over 50.000 bicycles for children in africa by riding his bike to practically every cycleshop in europe and asking for donations. Robbo has also helped build 2 children’s hospitals with his own bare hands.
