Against all Odds

Bernard Smith was told it was too dangerous to take a blind woman around the world. But, with Bernard as her pilot, Cathy Birchall was the first blind woman to circle the world by motorcycle. They rode their old BMW motorcycle, covering 25,000 miles, experiencing many breakdowns and along the way discovering the kindness and generosity of strangers. This is truly an inspirational story of love, humanity and survival against the odds.

Dream Racer

 

Christophe Barriere-Varju

 

The Dakar Rally is the world’s toughest off-road endurance race, an annual event where racers push themselves to the limit to compete in what has been said to be the most dangerous race, with great challenges in extreme conditions. And Christophe Barriere-Varju has been one of those die-hard competitors, having been in the Dakar Rally four times, both in Africa and in South America. Christophe speaks with Jim Martin about being in this incredible international race, and tells us about the award winning film “Dreamracer”, the true story about Christophe and his motorbike in the Dakar Rally.

Ian Coates - No Map, No Plan, No Worries

Ian Coates - Ian Coates - No Map, No Plan, No Worries

 

Hailing from Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, England, in 1999 Ian Coates left on a four month trip on his 1991 Honda Africa Twin motorcycle. 240,000 miles and 14 years later, 70 year old Ian finally returned home. He visited almost every country in the world, travelling solo on his motorcycle with no GPS. Ian doesn’t just drive through as though on a mission, he takes the time to experience the cultures, people and lay of the land by spending time exploring without a map and without watching the clock or calendar. Ian is a man of wit and patience. He has an incredible way of looking at things and, well you’ll need to listen to this episode to understand what we mean. 

 

You can contact Ian at coatesian@hotmail.com.

Finding Good People of The World


Ramona Schwartz

Born in East Germany, travel writer and photographer Ramona Schwartz grew up under Communist dictatorship and only knew freedom when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. She railed against a conventional life style, living the typical rat race many of us do. And when presented with the opportunity to travel around the world on a motorcycle, she jumped at the chance. First she learned to ride a motorcycle and then she set off with her boyfriend on a KTM and didn’t look back. She travelled for 6 years around the world, and to this day is still adventuring with her husband, Herbert with two kids in tow in the side car.
