‘Cycling The 6’ Slideshow March 18th, 2017

Hear from cycling adventurers  as they share their captivating stories illustrated with pictures.

PROGRAMME:

19:00 “Cycling the 6” – Slideshow by Stephen Fabes (FREE)

For six years, from 2010 to 2016, Stephen Fabes, doctor, writer, cycling adventurer, pedaled across 75 different countries, clocking up a distance of 86,209 km (54,000 miles) by bicycle – a distance equivalent to more than twice the circumference of the earth, 25 times the Tour de France’s or 66 times the length of Great Britain (and over slightly more challenging terrain).

From the baked war-struck deserts of Syria and Afghanistan to an outstandingly untoasty Mongolia mid-winter, Stephen Fabes dodged landslides and leaping camel spiders, was detained on suspicion of espionage in China, towed a rollerblader across Uzbekistan, contracted dengue fever (and the urge to tell everyone about it), survived blizzards and tropical storms.

Along the way Stephen Fabes spent time among marginalised people with health problems. He was interested in marginalisation and health, and spent time visiting remote clinics and medical projects.
