ALONE IN LADAKH OMAR DI FELICE EMBARKS ON ANOTHER STAGE OF THE ‘BIKE TO 1.5°C’ PROJECT
Ultra cyclist Omar Di Felice's 2023 begins with a new extreme winter adventure crossing the remote Ladakh region among the Himalayan mountains and glaciers. After returning early from Antarctica and waiting to set off again on what will be his second attempt to cross the planet's most remote continent, he has set a new goal. An adventure that marks the point of departure: Omar will cross one of the highest and coldest regions on Earth, Ladakh. Located in the north of India, on the border between Pakistan and China, the region is the Himalayan district that still preserves Tibetan Buddhism intact, so much so that it is also nicknamed 'the Little Tibet of India'.
