Author Event - Jeremy Scott, The Long Road From a Broken Heart


Glenelg Libraries welcomes traveller and author Jeremy Scott to share his amazing story of self-discovery The Long Road from a Broken Heart.

As a toddler, Jeremy suffered from a huge hole in his aorta valve and at just four years of age he underwent open heart surgery.  Thirty four years later, on the 5 October 2011, Jeremy began a challenge of a life time, a 2½ year, 51,916km solo bicycle ride from London to New Zealand. As he pedalled his way around the planet, Jeremy covered more than enough distance to circumnavigate the earth.

While separate encounters with the Iranian and Filipino Mafia had Jeremy fearing for his life, it was the beautiful acts of kindness offered by strangers throughout the world that will forever warm his heart.

Jeremy is a recipient of the Australian Heart Foundation ‘Heart Hero Award’ and is an Ambassador for Waterline Challenge.

This incredible story highlights what anyone can achieve in life, if they are willing to take that first step.
