THE TARTAN EXPLORER
My name is Josh Quigley and after a long and painful battle with depression in 2015, I gave up all hope and attempted to take my own life.
Having very luckily survived my suicide attempt, I realised I’d been given a 2nd chance and that I had to make the most of life and do something big.
I later had an epiphany that maybe I was kept alive to tell my story and dedicate my new life to helping and inspiring those who also suffered like I had whilst also raising awareness of mental health issues.
I’m now attempting an 80 country, 50,000 mile around the world cycling challenge as The Tartan Explorer.
My journey will take me through Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and finally North America before returning to Scotland.
This is the story of one boy’s journey to happiness.
By sharing my journey and the lessons I learn, I hope to educate and inspire others. Helping them to also go on their own journeys towards happiness.
Anyone can beat depression. Anyone can stop feeling suicidal.
I want to lead the way and show the world how.
That’s my message.
After darkness comes light.
