TPZ187: Cycling West Africa with Nikki Ray


Starting in Spain, she cycled 10,000 km across 13 countries to reach Ghana on a bike she built from recycled components.  It was an adventure she called Ready Steady Slow in an effort to remind herself not to rush and to patiently take in everything going on around her.  But going slow can be a difficult challenge when the setbacks begin to mount like colliding with a taxi in Senegal and injuring a knee to cycling through the desert in extreme heat to not having the correct tools to fix a disintegrating wheel.  You can learn more about her journey at her website readysteadyslow.wordpress.com.  Nikki Ray, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.
