Want to hear more?
Tollymore National Outdoor Centre is delighted to present Leon McCarron a 24 year old Northern Irish adventurer, cameraman, writer and motivational speaker.
In early 2010, Leon set off from New York on a solo, unsupported bicycle tour headed in the direction of Hong Kong.
As a cameraman Leon has made a documentary of his epic journey which took him 6,000 miles across North America and down to Mexico, 2,000 miles in New Zealand, 2,500 miles in Australia and the final leg of the trip from Bangkok to Hong Kong.
His presentation including clips from his film will be about the people and places he encountered on the way from a multi-millionaire lawyer in New York to a Pilipino Elvis impersonator in Cambodia.
If you want to hear more come along to Tollymore National Outdoor Centre on Thursday, 1 September 2011 at 7.30pm.
Admission will be £5 for adults & £2 for children with all proceeds going to UNICEF.
