Sarah Outen – cycling, rowing and kayaking around the world!
Back in April 2011, Sarah Outen set out from Tower Bridge on her London2London: Via the World expedition. Her goal was to row, bike and kayak around the northern hemisphere, inspiring children and fundraising for charities.
Reading about her journey you can’t help but be inspired – she comes across as down to earth and relatable. There’s no doubt she has inspired a lot of individuals young and old to take on their own challenges.
One of the best things – Sarah believes anyone could do it too according to her interview with Cooler before she finished! We loved her comment:
You get to meet wildlife on its own terms. You’re not a big scary noisy vehicle that’s going to run it over. You’re right up close and personal in it. You’re not intimidating on a bicycle. You’re just a bit tired and smelly. People really connect with that, it’s really powerful.
Sarah completed her journey on the 3rd November 2015 arriving back in London, England after 1676 days, 23 hours, 25 minutes and 0 seconds – that’s 4.5 years covering over 25000 miles! Her book ‘Dare to Do’ about her expedition will be out in May 2016.
