Aggressor Adventures Sponsors 80-Year-Old Cyclist Across Continents


Aggressor Adventures is one of the sponsors of octogenarian Robert Fletcher as he resumes his plan to ride an electric bicycle from North Pole, Alaska, to Ushuaia, Argentina, on July 4, 2023, in Cartagena, Colombia.

Over the next five months, Fletcher will cycle through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.

Fletcher is the official Guinness World Record holder for the longest journey on an electric bike, achieved when he rode from North Pole, Alaska, to Panama City, Panama, an official distance of 14,274 km (8,869 miles).

Aggressor Adventures Chairman & CEO Wayne Brown said:

“Our company is dedicated to travel, adventure and seeing the world. Robert is a kindred spirit and an inspiration to us all that we should never stop in our quest to seek new places and unique experiences. Aggressor is proud to support his Odyssey.”

Once Fletcher reaches Ushuaia around December 11th, he will have cycled approximately 28,000 km (17,398 miles) and climbed more than 225,000 meters (738,189ft), while visiting 15 countries on two continents over one and a half years. His support team for South America will consist of his wife Gloria, stepdaughter Julie and his sister-in-law Johana.
