21 December, 10:27 AM

Actor and motivational speaker, Ivan Zimmermann, has recently completed a cycling adventure from Beijing to Istanbul. Find out about his expedition in the video above.

Zimmermann cycled 12, 280 kms with 14 people he hadn't met before. He even tells us about a day where he cycled for hours with a broken pedal.

As a part of the cycle, Zimmermann raised funds for LIPCO Law for All's non-profit company, Fees for All which addresses financial issues faced by students. He also continued his 'can-a-kilo' campaign which saw him raise one can of food per kilometre he cycled.

The actor successfully completed a cycle from Cairo to Cape Town in 2015.
