For a long time, Kristian had a dream of traveling the world by way of bike. He has previously been following the adventures Fredrika Ek (The Bike Ramble) on Instagram as she rode around the world. Her stories and descriptions of experiences were a great source of inspiration to taking this challenge on himself. On Sunday April 15th, 2018 Kristian decided to make his dream a reality. His last day as an employee is on August 20, 2018 and the house, the car and the couch are sold and replaced by a bicycle and a tent (and some other stuff too). Starting in Stockholm on September 3rd, 2018 Kristian will take on the 40.000 km that circling the globe on a bike entails.
Bike for Dementia
This project is initiated and organised in a collaboration with Dementia Forum and the Swedish Alzheimer Foundation with a purpose of raising funds for dementia research and at the same time also increase people’s awareness about dementia diseases. The goal is to raise 50 000EUR that will be donated directly to the Swedish Alzheimer Foundation (Alzheimerfonden) and their selected research on dementia diseases, care and treatment. This means that each and every organisation or individual can contribute by donating, spreading a message about the project or helping Kristian during his trip.
