Follow along as Michiel Desmet makes a Guinness World Record attempt by riding his handcycle more than 4,000 miles.
In 2013, a spinal injury paralyzed Michiel Desmet, leaving him without the use of his legs.
Now he’s bikepacking on a handcycle from Alaska to Mexico to test his limits, set a record, and bring attention to adaptive athletes. The video series he’s creating with partner Chiara Maffina chronicles the journey in an intimate and unflinching fashion.
Good and bad, highs and lows — the duo captures it all. Check out the latest video, and make sure to catch up on the rest of the series here.
