International Women’s Day – From Cairo to Cape Town on a Bicycle
International Women’s Day – From Cairo to Capetown on a Bicycle!
Speaker: Dr. Brenda Trenholme
A self-described “endurance fanatic,” Brenda had completed several cycle tours through Europe when she decided to take on an even longer cycling challenge. in 2016, she set off from Cairo with 15 others to cycle 12,000 km to Cape Town. This exciting adventure whet her appetite for exploring exotic places and two years later she joined 15 others to cycle 13,000 km along the so-called “Silk Road” from Beijing to Istanbul. As our speaker for International Women’s Day, Brenda’s presentation will focus on her trip across Africa and and highlight the cultural aspects unique to some of the African women she encountered.
