Cycling West Africa with Nikki Ray

Starting in Spain, she cycled 10,000 km across 13 countries to reach Ghana on a bike she built from recycled components. It was an adventure she called Ready Steady Slow in an effort to remind herself not to rush and to patiently take in everything going on around her. But going slow can be a difficult challenge when the setbacks begin to mount like colliding with a taxi in Senegal and injuring a knee to cycling through the desert in extreme heat to not having the correct tools to fix a disintegrating wheel. You can learn more about her journey at her website readysteadyslow.wordpress.com. Nikki Ray, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.

Cycle Touring with Scott Sharick

He lived in western New York and Hawaii before moving to Cambodia in 2015 where he explored the country by motorbike.

His first big cycle tour was in 1990 across the United States. Now, he’s on an even longer cycle trip he calls Strokes to Spokes. Starting in Cambodia his travels have taken him through SE Asia, India, Nepal, and currently Australia. And as a photographer his camera keeps pulling him in directions he wouldn’t otherwise have gone. You can learn more at his website adventuresofaregularguy.com.

Cycling, Packrafting, & Hiking with Alice Bowers

She had an ordinary life as a geography teacher before setting out to live a life of adventure. She is passionate about traveling and human powered exploration and spent 13 months cycling the length of Australia and New Zealand and then from Indonesia to Nepal. The journey opened her eyes to the kindness of strangers, but also to the harmful effects humans have on the environment. She also spent a month paddling the rivers of rural Bangladesh and recently returned home from walking the length of Iceland. You can learn more at her website alicebowers.com.

Rowing the Pacific Ocean with Jacob Adoram

He is an Eagle Scout, a former military aviator, and an avid traveler who has explored over 35 countries. He rode a recumbent bicycle across the US using the Race Across America route and in July 2018 began rowing from Neah Bay, Washington to Australia, making landfall 11 months later at Trinity Beach, Queensland – a journey of over 7,000 statute miles in a custom-made rowboat and the longest solo, non-stop row from North America in the history of modern ocean rowing. He is also raising funds for Water Mission - a non-profit that builds and implements safe water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions for people in developing countries and disaster areas.

Exploring Newfoundland and Labrador with Justin Barbour

With his dog Saku, he explores the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In 2017 they crossed Newfoundland - 700 km by foot, snowshoe, and packraft. In 2018 with the support from the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and Mountain Equipment Coop, they began a crossing over the Labrador Peninsula on foot and by canoe. It was a 1,700 km dream project and a way to share some of these last undeveloped wilderness areas. In the end, their goal of reaching the shores of Hudson Bay fell short by 700 km as high winds pinned them down for 28 days. You can learn more about these journeys at newfoundlandexplorer.com.

Cycling in Asia and Creating YouTube Videos with Adam Hugill

In 2018, after 12 years in the British Army, he left that life behind to begin cycling to these far way places. Since then, his desire to tell his story through video has grown and he’s steadily improving his filmmaking craft as he cycles his way around the world.
