Jelle Veyt

Veyt to Row the Atlantic

Date: November 12, 2020
Approximate GPS Location: (51.02°N, 4.10°E)

We last heard from Jelle Veyt when his quest to cycle from his home in Belgium to Kilimanjaro was derailed in the Congo by COVID-19. In the six months since our last update, he has been busy. Unsure when he will be able to complete his human-powered trip to Tanzania, Veyt has instead turned his focus to his next challenge, Denali.

Veyt has teamed up with friends Koen De Gezelle and Gijs Vanden Bogaerde to build a light-weight carbon boat that they plan to row from Portugal to Miami. Leaving on January 4, Veyt will first cycle to Portimao in Portugal before rowing 4,474 miles to Miami!

From Miami, it will be back on the bike for almost 10,000 miles more in order to reach Denali in Alaska, the highest peak in North America.
