When Malaysian cyclist Peter Yoong, 58, of Puchong, Selangor, set off on his two-year solo cycling world tour covering 30,000km, he was living his grand dream. He had hosted cyclists from different countries, heard about their adventures and felt inspired to make the journey himself.

The former freelance illustrator and graphic designer was self-funding his ride on a budget of RM40,000. He also planned to raise RM80,000 for the World Vision Malaysia Education Fund for local underprivileged children.
