    In this extra special episode, Scottish cyclist Jenny Graham chatted to Rob Pope about how she broke the female world record for cycling around the globe – unsupported – in 2018, smashing Italian Paola Gianotti’s four-year record by an extraordinary 20 days.

    Recorded and streamed live during Red Bull Timelaps – the world’s longest one-day cycling event, which challenges riders to accumulate as much distance as possible within 25 hours – Jenny’s story of cycling 18,000 miles, through 16 countries, completely self-supported, served as much-needed inspiration to event participants – and will to any budding endurance cyclists.

From being greeted by beautiful blinding sunrises after long nights of riding, to experiencing new magical cultures and ways of life, to the many incredible and unforgettable interactions she had with those she met on her journey, Jenny describes the gratitude she felt every day as she made her way around the globe, powered by her own steam.

    The woman who climbed El Capitan with a broken back: Karen Darke, Series 1 Episode 12

    The woman who climbed El Capitan with a broken back: Karen Darke, Series 1 Episode 12

    Paralympic hand cyclist Karen Darke was just 21 when she set off on a climbing trip that would change her life forever. Leading a climb on a sea cliff outside Aberdeen, she fell as the last bit of secured protection came away. Three days later, she woke up in intensive care to the news she’d broken her neck and back, paralysing her from the waist down.

    In this episode, Rob Pope chats to Karen about her climbing accident and the achievements that followed it – from hand cycling across the Himalayas on a specially made tandem and spending a month in minus 30°C temperatures crossing Greenland on skies, to the highs and lows of Paralympic training, and a punishing schedule that took her to London and Rio...

    Karen also reveals how she was forced to confront her fears and past trauma head-on when she agreed to climb the revered and unforgiving sheer granite behemoth of El Capitan in Yosemite, California. Twenty metres up and petrified, Karen shares the mental process she used to overcome her fear and take control of her mind, as she physically took on the equivalent of 4,000 pull-ups to scale the kilometre-high sheer granite rock face.
