A weekly (most of the time!) round-up of stories, events and projects coming out of the YesTribe.
Researched and written by Richard Potter
CHRIS WARD: BEST WAY ROUND
Best Way Round is a multi stage cycle trip round the world. Chris Ward will cycle around 1 continent every year for the next 6 years, spending three weeks on each continent. He starts on November 24th 2016 in Australia and will cycle from Adelaide to Brisbane. Not bad for someone with 4 kids and work to do: go Chris!
You can follow Chris’ progress on Facebook.
DAVE CORNTHWAITE: 1000 MILES ACROSS JAPAN BY SCOOTER
Next week Dave Cornthwaite will begin a 1000 mile journey across Japan on his scooter, Swifty. Setting off from Tokyo, Dave will travel in a wide loop through southern Honshu and Shikoku, visit Hiroshima and Mt Fuji then return to Tokyo just before Christmas.
KIKO MATTHEWS: THE TRANSATLANTIC SOLO 2018
Kiko Matthews, founder of SUPkiko, has started a campaign to become the fastest unsupported woman (and possibly person) to solo row the Atlantic. She’s raising money for Help for Heroes, Women in Sport and her own charity The Big Stand.
The Facebook page about her WR attempt is here.
Have you been inspired by any of these stories? Do you have your own to share? We’d love to hear about it. The YesTribe is a community that is free to anyone who is looking to make life less restricted, more enjoyable, more interesting and more memorable. Your story doesn’t need to be an endurance adventure, many of the YesTribe are making films, raising money for good causes and developing the community.
