Disabled Bike Trip Round World

Date Posted: 2000-05-27

Karen Dark, 28, of Scotland, who has been paralyzed from the waist down since she had an accident when climbing a mountain, arrived at Okinawa on her round-the-world tour on a hand-powered bicycle.

She started her tour through Japan from Hokkaido two months ago driving her way down south.

Dark who has a doctorate in geology, usually works in oil exploration. She started her trip in 1997, which has taken her through Europe and Asia. She is looking forward to realizing her lifelong dream to climb the mountains of Himalaya.

She doesn’t consider her handicap an insurmountable barrier and says, “I can do just about everything I set my mind to.”
