Susie reads an extract from her book at the All Ears event.
Our very own superhero, Susie Wheeldon, spoke of her Solar Cycle Diary adventures (and misadventures) in front of a captivated audience of 130 on Tuesday night. The event brought together a trilogy of inspiring speakers, including writer and coach, Gaylene Gould and entrepreneur and humanitarian Sean Carasso of Falling Whistles – the organisation behind a campaign for peace in Congo.
Susie spoke with her usual animated and amusing charm about how she and her cycling buddy, Jamie Vining, cycled through 12 countries, battled through blizzards, over almost impassable mountains and survived searing heat in the Saharan sunshine, all to raise awareness about the potential for solar power and the work of SolarAid.
We wanted to let you know because the best tales from her incredible trip are captured in one excellent book – The Solar Cycle Diaries, with all proceeds going towards our mission to eradicate kerosene lanterns from Africa by the end of this decade! We may be a week late, but we all agree that Susie deserves a gold medal!
Over and out.
