Freddie Flintoff Takes on Amazon Cycle

1st November 2013

Former cricketer and motivational after dinner speaker, Freddie Flintoff has taken on his biggest challenge yet, a cycle through the Amazon.

Freddie enjoys taking on new challenges and in the past he has trained to be a boxer in ‘From Lord’s to the Ring’ and survived ‘Alone in the Wild’. His new show is called ‘Road Through the Rainforest’ and will air next year on Sky One.

Freddie stated that “before going out there I didn’t know too much about it, but thought this was an amazing chance to go away. We cycled about 500 miles of the Trans-Amazonian highway, which is a dirt road.” The programme is raise awareness of the dangers to the rainforest and Sky are attempting to save a billion trees.

The former cricketer appeared on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ sofa to talk about his experience. Freddie explained that he had leant a lot from his trip, he stated “It was an educational trip for me, because apparently in that part of the world every minute three football pitches worth of trees are being felled.”
