Rory Macleod is a writer from California. In 2015, he was working as the head writer for Apple HR and living in San Francisco when he decided to quit his job, give up his apartment, and sell off all of his belongings to pursue his dream of bicycling across America.
His original goal was to just ride from Oregon to Maine, but after getting to the east coast he decided to keep going. Since then he has biked more than 55,000 kilometers through 35 U.S. states and 44 countries across North America, Europe, and Africa, and raised more than €40,000 for World Bicycle Relief, helping people in developing countries receive access to healthcare and education.
Now Rory lives on an island in Croatia, in the tiny village of Pučišća, where he is writing a book about his travels, learning the language, and discovering what life after a long journey looks like.
He did not return home and will tell you on the 18th of January 2020 why and how it is not to come home.
