Ben Leo Hollis (or Bleo) is a 19-year-old student from Leicester.
On 1 August 2018, he set off solo, unaided, and with a tiny budget on a 13-month trip to cycle from Leicester, UK to Brisbane, Australia to raise money for the Campaign for Female Education, Cool Earth and Stand Against Racism & Inequality.
After completing the trip he is currently studying Biological Sciences at University College London working towards his goal of a rainforest-related career, starting out in South America.
He is also working hard to edit and release the short films documenting the trip that he shot whilst on the road, as well as working on a book and his first solo photography exhibition.
He likes National Geographic quite a bit.
