Who We Like

The project was created for Cycling Fans around the world to engage and mobilise some of the best male and female cyclists in Uganda. These athletes just happened to be born and based in the South, yet do not have access to equipment or opportunity due to their extreme level of poverty.

The project may appear to be a Cycling Club on the surface, however, it is the underlying humanitarian elements that motivate donors the world over.

Women’s Adventure Film Tour features some of the world’s most inspiring women in adventure.

Kate Leeming
Wilderness Wear Brand Ambassador & star of “Breaking the Cycle: Greenland”.

The Women’s Adventure Film Tour was launched to a sell-out crowd in Sydney in May 2017 and has grown to become a success throughout Australia, Asia and the United Kingdom. The tour is now back in Australia for the first 2 weeks of September.

Being adventurous doesn’t always have to mean being the fastest, going the highest or doing the most extreme things. Adventure for the most of us is stepping outside our comfort zone and climbing our own personal Everest.

The festival selects unique films, that have been carefully chosen to show awesome women achieving their adventurous goals.  The films showcase real stories about women from a variety of cultures and sports with a strong focus on Australian and New Zealand stories.

“I’ve just got back from my trip around the Larapinta. And the performance of the T-shirt Fusion 60 over the whole week hiking has been excellent. The wicking of the fabric was unbelievable and aid me during the unseasonable hot days. Also its breathability kept me cool under the sun and quite warm during the evening. I wore the T-shirt during the days and the evenings since the expected nights around 0C did not occur. Moreover, after 7 days of heavy usage the clothing barely had any smell so I can assure you that its antibacterial properties also worked well.

Again thank you! Your company has developed an incredible new fabric that sustained really tough conditions over a whole week of walking an average of 6 to 7 hours, 20 km per day, carrying 18 kg and day temperatures of 28 to 30 C”.

“I’m loving the MerinoFusion Light – wearing the base layers every day, not just when cycling. In fact it’s awesome! I have worn the fusion light top out sailing but as a cycling top it was amazing! I’ve ridden it a number of times. Its ability to wick perspiration is better than I have ever worn. My polyester mesh bibs straps underneath were wet from perspiration but the fusion was still dry – I was wishing the bib straps were also made from the fusion fabric”.

Simon Bischoff

“Unfortunately I have some niggling injuries that I’m trying to sort out, so I won’t be on the rock for a little while. Although I’ll be doing some fairly specialised training over the winter months for some upcoming projects in Spring. I was actually really surprised with the shirt straight out of the packaging. It had a lovely feel and I really liked the natural colour. To be honest a lot of stuff I get sent, I would hardly think of wearing, let alone buying. The dirt bag streak runs deep in me. With this thermal though, I said to my girlfriend straight away “I’d actually buy that”, which coming from me, I thought was a pretty bloody good review. I chucked it on and it felt excellent. I really liked the fit an also the length is something that was pleasing. I like my outdoor tops to generously overlap the waistline. This is really important when carrying a pack or wearing a harness, or god forbid, both at the same time”.

Angi Kim

“One of my favourites. Great green colour with cool texture. Nice fit that is very flattering. I have gotten so many compliments for this top, it looks very outdoorsy but can still wear with jeans around town. Wore this climbing in the Arapiles for a week, climbing and sleeping in it. No smell, very comfortable. Little bit of rubbing where harness sat, but didn’t pill and still looks great”.

Shareen Underwood

“I’m so pleased I found your page on Insta & it feels great having some completely Australian owned and made items. The delivery couldn’t have come at a better time either with the cold arriving and me needing to buy new socks. MerinoFusion short sleeve tee will be a favourite, particularly during the colder months. Opening the box you instantly notice the quality and the fabric is so soft. I liked the cut and how it sat when I wore it, the additional length is appreciated too. I’ve worn it on several runs and it kept me dry & toasty”.

Tom Dunn

“I was asked to test out the Wilderness Wear MerinoFusion 160 Light SS Tee… so today I drove to the Grampians and ran up a mountain! Any excuse to explore.
Big tick of approval from me!”

Angi Kim

“Love the Fusion Shiraz colour… it is fantastic!
Wore this all through winter climbing in Sydney and the Blue Mountains and it was a great layer that kept me warm without restricting movement. After one particularly long day multi-pitch climbing, I literally took it off and lent it to a friend to wear the next day (she hadn’t bought enough warm clothes). Was a bit worried it would be all sweaty and gross, but she said there was zero smell and still felt clean. Awesome!”

As part of this challenge, Lilli & Will Guelen trekked at high altitude for 11 days, pushing themselves to the limits with this adventure of a lifetime. At the same time, Lilli & Will spoke out against human rights abusers, helping to expose human rights injustices across the globe and raising much needed funds to protect vulnerable people and communities throughout the world.

The important part of this challenge was to raise $8,200 for Amnesty International Australia’s work defending human rights and it was a success.
