Tomas Telerovsky is slowly making his way from the Gold Coast to Melbourne on a pushbike he got at Cash Converters.
He is currently making his way through the Bega Valley. We caught up with him on the outskirts of Narooma, at the hill before Mystery Bay Rd.
“I do not normally ride bikes, it was a spontaneous idea,” Mr Telerovsky said.
“I arrived at the Gold Coast by myself and thought well I need to get to Melbourne, so why not ride.
“There is a certain freedom to riding a bike in a country like this. I am not limited by time, only by money,” he said.
“I love Australian hospitality...I got a flat tyre twice, but both times people stopped to help me and one invited me for a barbecue.”
Mr Telerovsky landed in Australia on January 15, bought his bike for $200 and left the Gold Coast two days later.
He has been riding for 21 days now and is hoping to make it to Melbourne before February 24 where he plans to attend an Eminem concert before boarding his next flight to Japan on the 26th.
He has covered 19 countries in seven months of travel so far, and plans to head home to the Czech Republic after his final stops – Japan and the USA.
When asked if he would ride in Japan he said “It is freezing there, so I think I will use public transport”.
Mr Telerovsky was unsure if he would go via Bermagui or Cobargo, but if you see him riding along, he said to say hello.
