Tim and Laura set off from England last year and have have ridden through Europe, the Middle East and India. They are currently pedalling across South East Asia (and even managed a quick detour into Japan and South Korea.) Tim grows a wonderful beard and Laura is really clever - their blogs make great reading!
Charlie starting pedalling in 2010 with a hugely ambitious plan for getting around the world. At this point in 2014 he's still going, and if anything he's managed to make it even more ambitious and exciting as he goes. Highlights from his blog have included his cycling experiences in the Middle East, a bit of horse-powered travel in Mongolia (not to mention walking in the Gobi) and his current adventures in Central Africa.
I've only recently come across this site, but Cindy's adventures (alone) around the world make a great read - especially her stuff on the Arabian Peninsula. The blog is an excellent mix of slightly mad and wholly marvellous.
This is one that's just finished, but Andy's ride around Brazil (between all the World Cup Stadiums, finishing in Manaus for the first England game) was one of the most jealously-enducing rides I've followed for a long time. That's the highest compliment I can pay a journey! His blog is full of great stories, and he's still out there soaking up the football.

Tom's previous bike trips have taken him to far-flung wild places, but this is one of his best, I think - a trip north through the UK on a recycled bike with a budget of £0.00. After reading this, there are no more excuses left for the procrastinating tourer....
Secondly, the Young Philanthropists - three Americans riding across Europe, doing good along the way. Great stuff!
