In August 2013, Reza teamed up with Steven Pawley in an attempted to set the World Record for the Fastest Bicycle Journey from Nordkapp in the Arctic Circle to Cape Town in South Africa.
Entitled “Kapp to Cape”, they pedaled the entire length of the planet, each carrying 30kg of equipment over 11,000 miles, crossing 13 countries on three continents, completely unsupported. The journey took them to punishing terrain and primitive roads, harsh and debilitating climates and they came face to face with danger in the world’s most volatile regions. Despite serious food poisoning, hostility and Reza going down with Malaria they managed to finish the journey in 102 days.
