About Jeremy:

As a four year old child in 1977, Jeremy Scott lay in an Auckland hospital bed awaiting life-saving open heart surgery. His cardiologist was the renowned Sir Brian Barratt-Boyes and the procedure turned out to be a huge success. Thirty four years after this surgery, Jeremy was healthy and happy but knew in his heart that he needed a challenge. That challenge came in the shape of a 51,916km bicycle ride from Britain to New Zealand.

Cycling solo, without sponsorship or the benefit of a support crew, Jeremy pedalled through 29 countries on his ride from London to Auckland.

Two years and seven months after his departure from London, his epic challenge came to an emotional conclusion in his hometown of Auckland. This journey highlights what anyone can achieve with a little self-belief and the courage to chase a dream.

At the conclusion of the journey, Jeremy wrote his first book ‘The Long Road From a Broken Heart’.
