Would you be able to ride a bicycle for eight months along the ancient Silk Road through 13 countries, while interviewing tech companies and hosting workshops along the way? Eva Yoo, an international cyclist and writer, just accomplished exactly this feat — and she’s the subject of our latest podcast episode.

Born in Korea, Eva has worked in five countries and speaks four languages. Rather than enjoying a nice job in Shanghai, she decided to challenge herself by taking a bike trip from Shanghai to London.

In this episode, she shares the danger and joy that she experienced during the trip and what she learnt about China’s ever-expanding Belt and Road initiative along the way.
