Welcome back to European Cycle Expedition duo!

Sea Champions return from epic cycle to raise funds to save our seas

Throughout June and July, Sea Champions Oli Minto and Matt Zietz who study Marine Biology and Oceanography at Plymouth University, combined their passions for the sea, cycling and adventure, by embarking on an expedition from southern Poland, up north and along the coast, all the way back to the UK, by bicycle.

Their European Cycle Expedition visited the Baltic Coastline, crossed Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France – a whopping 2,700 km!

“Throughout our journey we raised awareness of topical marine issues close to our heart such as plastic pollution and overfishing via the medium of travel and adventure, as well as raising funds for MCS,” says Ollie. “We both have an unrivalled passion for the marine environment and the diversity of life contained within it.”

The duo are still collecting sponsors on their Virgin Money Giving page>>
