And he did it without training wheels!

 Wesley Hammett is a cargo handler, and after his dad passed away last year, he decided to raise funds for various charities and hospitals. To do this, he decided to ride from Glasgow, Scotland, to his home near Manchester, England, on a comically small bike his daughters learned to ride on, "just for fun."

He reached peaks as high as 1,350 feet at the Shap Summit in Cumbria, which he says with some understatement, the bike "wasn't built for." After a grueling trip which included a six-hour long stretch and eight flat tires, he managed to drag the 12-inch wheels to his home on Sept. 21. So far he has raised just over $10,730 for charity.
