Avid cyclist and marijuana enthusiast, Roger Boyd of Bristol, England, has been hoping to make a statement about cannabis and its users. His ultimate objective is dispelling the myth of the lazy stoner that’s unfortunately all too prevalent across the globe. In his effort to change people’s perceptions about marijuana users for the better, Boyd has gone on his creatively named “Tour De Dank” cycling tour and has racked up more than 19,000 miles traveling across Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Nepal and several other countries over the last three years. This feat is that much more impressive considering the fact that all the while he has been stopping every 20 minutes in order to hit his portable vaporizer so that he can stay high the entire time that he is riding!

According to the Bristol Post, Boyd began his Tour De Dank in 2015, after switching from smoking weed to using a portable vaporizer. With some newfound lung power and a heady buzz, Boyd set out to disprove those who ascribe lazy stereotypes to stoners, documenting his pedal-powered adventures on his blog Healthy-Stoner.com.
So far, Boyd has biked across Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and India through rain, sleet, and snow, across highways and over mountains. Riding over 100 miles every day, the lit Lance Armstrong said he would stopped every 20 miles or so to break out his trusty vape, allowing him to stay high the entire journey.
Along the way, Boyd said he encountered countless other potheads — in locations as disparate as Siberia and Nepal — who joined him for impromptu smoke sessions. And with his beloved bike (“It’s so strong and has horns so I called it Rhino”) by his side, Boyd has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
