Auditorium

A session of short films covering journeys from around the world followed, after a short interval, by an afternoon with The Adventure Syndicate’s Jenny Graham who, in 2018, rode her way into the Guinness Book of World Records by becoming the fastest woman to circumnavigate the world by bike. Completing her ride solo and unsupported she covered 18,000 miles in just 124 days, knocking almost three weeks off the previous (supported) record. From dodging tornados and negotiating bear country to dealing with Russian traffic and more, Jenny offers a humorous take on the highs and lows of one very big adventure.
