The Quixotic Adventures of Sir Ken

A show by Ken Potter

"Eight years...fifty countries...five continents...deserts...jungles...mountains...

moments of pathos and moments of danger – see how one man

pits wits and mettle against the elements and

engages the world's cultures

in pursuit of his dream..."

Being interviewed in Sydney after his Trans-Australian bicycle trek...

"He nearly froze on a Costa Rican mountaintop, nearly fried in a desert, nearly drowned in a jungle gulf. He fell in love, fell off his bike,

and landed on the wrong side of the law when

he was accused of being a spy

by secret police..."
