Pushing limits, Cycling the World
James Ketchell is a serial adventurer, motivational speaker and very keen cyclist.
On the 1st February 2014 he become the first and only person to have rowed across the Atlantic ocean, successfully summit Mt Everest and cycle 18,000 miles around around the world. Seven year’s prior to this he was recovering from a serious motorcycle accident that left him with broken legs, a severely broken and dislocated ankle and the prognosis that he was likely to suffer a permanent walking impairment and would certainly not be able to continue the active physical lifestyle he had enjoyed up to that point.
James talks with candour and with enthusiasm about his response to that challenge and the way he has – in his words – without doing anything special set about physical tasks that most of us can only imagine experiencing. He describes his approach to these extraordinary tasks, how he continuously set incremental and achievable goals…like cycling the world!
James will be speaking on the Cycling Performance Theatre on Sunday 16th February at 12:30.
