A couple episodes ago, Lachlan Morton shared his plans for an around the world record attempt. In this episode, I’m talking to someone who’s actually done it.
In 2018, Jenny Graham set the women’s speed record for riding 18,000 miles around the world in 124 days and 11 hours.
And she did it unsupported, without, well…we’ll get to that, because the extent of her minimalism is pretty remarkable and I want you to hear it in her words.
Her story is captured in a new book called Coffee First, Then The World, and we talk about her experience documenting the ride, how she planned for it, the equipment and challenges of keeping a bike going day in and day out, overcoming the physical challenges of such an undertaking, the opportunities it’s created for her, and so much more.
