Happy Mothers day, to all my mothers out there! apologize for the late upload but I did spend it with my mom, so I had a little bit of a late start to my day. Speaking of which, I decided to cruise through the streets of Hollywood, California, which has seen better days! This pandemic has shut down the majority of the businesses in this area (bars, restaurants, clubs, theatres, comedy stores, etc., and that has left the streets very desolate and filled with tents and transients. My heart goes out to all the people that have been displaced by this crisis, and I hope we can get back to normal soon! – Alfredo Mancuso
This episode is about my 2016 adventure with Danny MacAskill and Gerhard Czerner to ride Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa – back to back on mountain bikes. Lots of great and rare photos by Martin Bissig. Possibly my hardest adventure to date with a great mission to distribute bicycles to people in need of transportation through my charity ‘Wheels 4 Life’.
Seven months pregnant and apprehensive of the effect motherhood would have on her career as a professional freediver, Kimi Werner took a trip to the island of Jeju in South Korea to meet her heroes, the haenyeo – a group of freediving and fishing women often regarded as Korea’s first working mother’s whose culture dates back centuries.
Expecting her first child, Kimi will explore how the haenyeo represent feminine strength and resilience as a self sufficient sisterhood of diving mothers and grandmothers. As Kimi transitions from a solo underwater adventurist to a mother cultivating a family, she longs to learn from the haenyeo elders – many of which are well into their 70’s and continue to dive.
