Getting out in a hurry. By Kate Leeming

Kate cycling Death Road, South Yungas, Bolivia

“As you are probably aware, I had to get out of Bolivia in a hurry, in fact we caught the last flight out of La Paz before the airport and country closed. Now on my sixth day of self-isolation, I thought I'd pull out a few images of me using the Hammerhead rain jacket. It was a vital piece of equipment given the rain and windchill I had to deal with.

Hopefully, I will be able to return to South America and complete the last two-thirds of the journey once this virus is under control.

Hope you are all OK at Mont.

Cheers, Kate”
