The fastest woman to cycle around the world comes to Penrith

Jenny Graham

The fastest woman to cycle around the world, Jenny Graham is coming to Rheged this Friday to share tales from her incredible journey!

In 2018, 37 year old Scottish cyclist Jenny Graham cycled an incredible 18000 miles across the globe – avoiding bears in the Yukon and dodging kangaroos in the Outback to complete the epic challenge self-supported in just 124 days! Jenny will share tales from her adventure on Friday 5th April at Rheged, Penrith as part of the Kendal Mountain Festival Tour.

Jenny will be joined on stage by local adventurer Clare Dyson, who also completed an incredible journey in 2018. Clare travelled 250 miles across the beautiful Lake District on her fell pony Pansy, sleeping wild and waking up to the stunning Cumbrian landscape with her loyal dog Finn by her side.

Alongside these speakers, the Kendal Mountain Festival tour date will feature a collection of short adventure films – stories of talent, endurance and excitement that will take your breath away! Ride icy waves in sub zero winter, chase tornados, run in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and mountain bike into the wildest reaches of your imagination.
