Cycling to the roof of the world on a Bamboo Bike and how to come back down again

Tom Roberts

n 2014, with a friend, I built a handmade bamboo bike and cycled from London to Singapore. Due to some design errors, the bike had no front brake and the gears had to be changed by bending down and moving the chain manually. The outcome? An amazing journey, and somehow, an incredible Emergency Medicine academic career and a job leading the Royal College of Emergency Medicine’s Trainee Emergency Research Network (TERN).

This session is aimed at those doctors who have a dream to do something special but haven’t quite managed it yet. Or for anyone who loves an adventure story. It is a positive story about how, by taking a step out of the normal career path, it empowers you to build an amazing portfolio career that complements the interesting world of medicine and the excitement of everything else the world has to offer!

Address:
Dynamic Earth, 112 Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire, EH8 8AS, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
