This week, we forego the usual news and focus an entire episode on Australian adventure bicycle rider Kate Leeming.

Leeming was the first person to ride a bike in an unbroken line across Africa, the first person to ride a bike across the entire Namibian coastline, first woman to cross new Russia unsupported on a bike … the list goes on. Kate undertakes incredible adventures on her bicycle, a special all-wheel-drive fat bike, all for causes relevant to the countries she is exploring.

Abby chatted with Kate at her home in Australia, where she is currently planning to ride her bike across Antarctica, the first crossing by bicycle ever. Find out more about Kate and her causes by visiting her website,, and following her on the social medias.
