Intro before, Q&A after by Lee Craigie.
“Four women, two cargo bikes, six days, Edinburgh to Copenhagen. What could possibly go wrong? In 2019, The Adventure Syndicate set out to challenge body and mind. Resolution Race was not a race in the traditional sense, but a demonstration of how far collective resolve, collaboration and kindness can take us in the race to save our planet.”
