Why Rob Lutter is fundraising for clean water

The LifeCycle Pt1: $1610...

Lets continue...

The LifeCycle is a 13,000+km round-the-world cyclophotography adventure. In September 2011 I set off on my bike, a couple of bags and a camera for the other side of the earth. My aim is to reach New Zealand by next Christmas and, hopefully, come back via America.

Sounds extreme?! Well, it's all in aid of Charity: Water. Helping to build clean water supplies for those in developing nations and third worlds across the globe. Charity water campaigns close after 3 months of fund raising so that money generated can be put into action. So far have I cycled across europe, scaling The Alps, down the Mediterranean coastline and have reached Albania, raising $1610 in donations! This is the second phase of fundraising. My aim was to raise $5000 in total. Help me do this.

For me, it's easy, the charity is focused and clear. You can see where your donations are taken: money = wells = water = life. It simple, direct and is a solution to the root cause of so many other problems that other charities are trying to tackle, like disease and education. I hope to reach Cambodia with enough money raised for at least one village well build. There are 6 billion people in the world, 1 billion live without clean drinking water. This can change and 100% of your donations go straight to solving this problem.

This is a huge trip. Please follow it at Please donate as much as you can to help the cause. During those long hours, alone on the saddle, riding through rain and snow, it will be knowing that all the while I will be helping to save lives which will keep me going and get me to the finish line.

Thank You.

    Best of luck Rob and stay safe through on the rest of your journey. Having worked with water most of my professional career you picked a charity close to my heart. Thanks for letting me travel vicariously with you and am loving your photos and blogs too.
