Adam Sultan: RideTheWorld
A list of Yes Tribe adventurers would be amiss without mention of Adam Sultan, serial adventurer. Adam left the London 2012 Olympic Velodrome on 18th June 2016 and is going to cycle the world. Adam is currently exploring Chamonix while following the 2014 Tour de France route.
Adam says “I plan to fully immerse myself in the cultures of the world and live unique experiences. My desire to take on an adventure of such magnitude is to gain a better understanding of the world and its inhabitants; exposing myself to nature at its rawest and people at their most delightful.”
