From 2017 to 2018 Kate Rawles rode the length of South America on 'Woody', a bicycle made of bamboo that she built herself at the London-based Bamboo Bicycle Club from bamboo grown at Cornwall's Eden Project. Kate travelled 8288 miles following the spine of the Andes. The aim was to explore biodiversity: what it is, what's happening to it, why that matters and, above all, what can and is being done to protect it. Kate then used the adventure story to help raise awareness and inspire action in the UK and beyond on this hugely important but relatively neglected environmental challenge.
