The speaker at the meeting of the Rotary Club of Kendal on 1st September was Cressida Allwood who gave a presentation entitled ‘Round the World Cycle Tour’.
In 2011 she left her job to attempt this challenge and she described how she would cycle, as the name implies, around the world. She was following her philosophy that ‘life is not the dreams you have but the dreams you realise’.
She travelled through Pakistan, (and all the ‘stans’), Turkey, Greece, Borneo, Australia, New Zealand and finally South America to name but a few. She is now back and living in Kendal.
