British couple cycle world together after promising to do so in first Tinder message

A British couple who agreed to cycle around the world together in their first Tinder message have spent 18 months pedalling through four continents.

When Mike Langridge and Helen Clarkson matched on the dating app they jokingly planned on quitting their jobs and biking around the world.

By their second date, the couple decided to embark on the trip in earnest and began saving £27,000 for the journey, even moving in together to save on rent.

A year and four months later, Mike, 32, and Helen, 30, cycled through Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.
