Welcome Ben Hopkins.
Ride the Future Tour is excited to have such a seasoned cyclist join our tour. Ben has traveled across many countries on a bicycle before – but never on an electric bike!
And while Ben is not riding the 100 miles per day for 44 days, he will be writing about his experiences as well as drawing them. He’s a freelance writer by profession and has a knack for story telling through cartoons. He is working on a book at the moment about what it’s like to live in Bangkok as a “ferang”- a foreigner.
Ben is always traveling the world for work and pleasure, but has made Bangkok his home base for the last 10 years. He has fond memories of growing up in the middle of England with a bunch of brothers and journeys back to his homeland as often as possible. And coming from a family of brothers and a dad who are all hard core cyclists, they will all surely be jealous when Ben comes home with the Guinness Book Of World Record Certificate for the Longest Journey on an electric Bike.
