“地狱之门”自行车骑行跨越1000英里,有蛇、狮子和流沙

这部由四个部分组成的纪录片讲述了一个世界第一次——历时一个月、骑自行车穿越纳米比亚的探险。

“骑行千里在最好的时候是一个艰难的挑战,但再加上庞大的沙丘、凶猛的逆风、极端的孤立和狮子,它就成了最严峻的挑战凯特利明博士的初衷就是在外面电视台的新闻稿中调侃这种不祥的言辞。

And, in just 36 days, she did so and has become the first person in history to cycle the entire length of Namibia’s coastline.

If when you think of Namibia, you envision rattlesnakes, mountain lions, deep sinking sands, and high desert heat, yes, that’s the place. It’s also one of the oldest deserts in the world.

它的绰号是“地狱之门”

Lucky for us, her monthlong, 1,621km journey cycling through the禁地has been fully documented in “Diamonds in the Sand.”

“See Kate endure some of the most inhospitable terrain and harshest climate on Earth,” teased the series producers. And the constant sandstorms, extreme heat, and extreme headwinds are draining, no doubt. Not to mention encounters with dangerous wildlife.

“This whole thing is a test of the mind,” Leeming commented. The hardest obstacle, in her opinion? The wind. “It’s demoralizing. You can’t control it.”
