Around the World by Bicycle – Again

I started riding my bicycle again in May 2003, after my prostate cancer surgery. My goal was to make cycling part of my personal recovery and my awareness program for other men.

PCAP Founder and President Robert Warren Hess finishes his 24,901.6 mile bicycle ride and earns his Around the World Cycling JerseyBy 2011, I had ridden over 20,000 miles and decided to create something that would inspire other men, thus was born the Around the World Cycling Challenge.

The World Cycling Challenge is for men and women who are up to the challenge of riding the distance around the world at the equator – 24,901.6 miles. The great thing is that you can do it right where you live. Just track your mileage and when you hit 24,901.6 miles you’re there.


  • A real sense of accomplishment
  • You will be in far better physical shape
  • Your immune system will love you
  • And, you will be able to wear one our very unique Around the World Cycling Challenge jersey.

I finished my first lap around the world on April 22, 2014, during the Earth Day celebration at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, CA, and I’m now just over 6,046 miles into my second lap around the earth.

Being Part of The Around the World Cycling Challenge is Easy . . .

All you need to do is to track your mileage. You can use, an Excel sheet (ask us for a template), or a simple paper and pencil log. It’s all on the honor system.

Just ride the miles and then send an email  using the contact form below and we’ll tell you how to get your jersey.
