Episode 49: Cycle down the length of Africa with Tomás Mac an t-Saoir

You may remember Tomás from one of the previous episodes of the podcast. Back then, he was a few months away from his planned, solo and unsupported, cycle from Cairo to Cape Town in aid of the Donal Walsh Live Life Foundation.

A year later I got to talk with Tomás again. He is back from his cycle, in one piece, healthy and happy. In this incredible episode, Tomás gives a vivid description of his trip and his adventures along the way. African people, African wildlife, pain, sorrow, exhilaration, unreal landscapes, ethnic conflict and friendship. 

This is another big-adventure episode and I feel really fortunate to call this young, but highly experienced, adventurer, a friend.

Episode 16: Cycling across Continents with Tomás Mac an t-Saoir


Experience of the outdoors quite often involves adventure. My guest today is taking adventure to the next level. Tomás Mac an t-Saoir is a young man in his twenties who cycled 3000 miles across North America solo and unsupported. This year he is planning to one-up his achievement by embarking on a 12,000 km self-supported cycling trip down the length of Africa. The journey will start in Cairo, Egypt and end in Cape Town, South Africa. Tomás is cycling in aid of the Donal Walsh Live Life Foundation. Listen to what Tom has to say about his incredible adventures and please support his cause by donating to the Donal Walsh Live Life Foundation.
