TACOMA, Wash. —

An Australian man who rode his bicycle from Florida to Washington state is facing deportation after overstaying his visa.

The Peninsula Daily News reports that 29-year-old David Fagan attempted to enter Canada on June 11 through Sumas, Wash., to stay at his companion's mother's house in British Columbia before traveling to England. He was denied entry and when he was in the border area, U.S. Customs and Border Protection determined Fagan had overstayed his three-month visa.

He was transported to the Tacoma detention center for immigrants, where he has been since.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Lorie Dankers says that his deportation has not been settled yet, but his visa does not allow to contest removal from the country.

Fagan's riding partner Dawn Lumsden says Fagan doesn't know when he'll be kicked out of the country.
