In 1996, when Steve set out with 3 partners set out
from Kunming, China The famous Burma Road had never been traversed
by bicycle or by any “foreign guests” for that matter.
The Burma Road is truly one of the most amazing engineering
feats of WW2 and its construction cost thousands of lives. Winding
its way from the high Yunnan plateau to the lowlands of the Mekong
and Salween Rivers, then back up to the towering heights and rugged
terrain of the southeastern-most parts of the Himalayas, the Burma
Road created a critical supply line between China and Myanmar (Burma.)
From stories of creatively coping with torrential
rain to an unforgettable encounter with an old man who witnessed
the road’s construction, to dealing with defeat at the Burmese
border, adventure speaker Steve Williams brings modern China to
life in a program that will inspire, inform, intrigue and entertain.
