Paul Pritchard – The Journey!

See here what is possible on a recumbent trike by a true adventurer who does not stop at anything to keep living life to the fullest. This may well be the most inspiring overland trike journey I have witnessed to date! I would absolutely LOVE to do it. What a ride …

This is an Award winning film from Griffon Media about Paul Pritchard’s recumbent trike ‘pilgrimage’ to Mount Everest. Accompanied by Carol Hurst, this ride took them on an amazing 1150 kilometer journey across the Himalaya Mountains, from Lhasa to Kathmandu via Everest Base Camp.

  1. Paul Pritchard is an above average, exceptional adventurer. Intense and driven, I’ve followed his story before. He is an inspiration, as is his companion on the ride, Carol Hurst. Thank you for inspiring us all.

    Over and over again fantastic people like Paul and his riding partner demonstrate how a trike can be adapted to give you mobility and adventure despite of a disability. Every able bodied rider should sit back and admire the courage and determination of folks like Paul and Carol.

    This is a very inspiring video! If, god forbid, anything like this happened to any of us, or someone we know, we would be extremely fortunate to be able to do 1/3rd of what Paul can. He is truly amazing.
