Swanson has spent the past two years riding around 20 countries around the world, including Nepal.

Teenager Adam Swanson spent the past two years cycling around the world.

With no training, Adam and a friend flew to the Netherlands in August 2021, where they would begin their cycling journey. They had no real route plan but cycled their way across to Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia. After six months, Henry called it, while Swanson decided to continued on.


Now, after a “few years of unconventional education,” cycling across 20 different countries and four continents, Swanson is finally on his way home, and will begin studying at the University of Minnesota in September.
