Adventurer and author Jeremy Scott will be telling his inspiring life story at a special event at the City Library tomorrow.

As a child Jeremy suffered from a hole in his aorta valve that denied him the opportunity of a normal life but at four years old he underwent open heart surgery of age.

Thirty-four years later, and without much experience or training, he set off on a 51,916 kilometre solo bike ride from London to New Zealand. He rode through 29 countries and it took him two and a half years. 

Jeremy’s example shows what can be achieved if you are willing to take that first step. 

He is also now the recipient of the Australian Heart Foundation’s “Heart Hero Award” and an Ambassador for Waterline Challenge. 

After Jeremy tells his story at the library there will be a brief Q&A and an opportunity to have the author sign a copy of his book “The Long Road from a Broken Heart”. 

The event is free and light refreshments will be available.

WHEN: Thursday, 6pm - 8pm
