Marcin Korzonek – by bicycle at 6000 m in Chile. Meeting April 5 at the Yellow Mill

This will be the story of a solo expedition across the Atacama Desert in Chile and an attempt to break the world record for the highest height a cyclist has climbed to. During the 50-day expedition, the speaker struggled with adversity and nature: wind, sunstroke, a knee injury which ultimately led him to visit the hospital. During the presentation we will learn where the largest open-pit mines and the highest telescopes and geysers in the world are located.

The meeting will take place on April 5 (Tuesday) 2022 at 7:00 pm at Klubokawiarnia Żółty Młynnek, in Rybnik, at Św. Jan 2. Admission: 10 PLN. Link to the event:
