In August 2013, Reza Pakravan and Steven Pawley embarked on their expedition, as they attempted to set the World Record for the Fastest Bicycle Journey from Nordkapp in the Arctic Circle to Cape Town in South Africa. "Kapp to Cape" is the compelling human story of an attempt to set a World Record for cycling the entire length of the planet in an ambitious 100 days. Realizing that his comfortable existence had stifled the dreams of his younger self, Reza Pakravan 39, rejected his secure job as a financial analyst in the City of London to embrace a new life of adventure and insecurity. He was joined by Steven Pawley, 36, a London-based South African born accountant. After two grueling years of meticulous planning and tough training, in August 2013 they set out from Nordkapp in the Arctic Circle to cycle the 11,000 miles to Cape Town in South Africa, completely unsupported.
