Kate has cycled the width of Africa, pedalled 25,000km around Australia, and is the first woman to cycle unsupported across ‘new’ Russia.
The epic story of her 22,040km cycle expedition across Africa has it all...dodging rebels and Somali pirates, close encounters with wild animals, pushing two wheels over massive sand dunes, and meeting the many diverse, kind and determined faces of Africa. This WORLD FIRST journey was not only a physical quest, but an odyssey to highlight the development needs of war-torn and poverty-stricken nations.
You will also learn how you can join Kate in 2016 on her inaugural expedition with World Expeditions - Leh to Manali Cycle Adventure with Kate Leeming - following the same epic trail Kate has trusted to prepare herself for Antarctica. All proceeds will go towards Kate's Breaking the Cycle South Pole expedition, which will raise money for The Global Fund, financing medical and educational support programs targeting HIV-related diseases.
