Many of us who participate in adventure sports have wondered: “What if the worst really happened? What if everything I have held so dear were to be taken away in the blink of an eye: my way of living, my job, my social life … everything?!”
An inspiring tale of a remarkable recovery from a hugely challenging, life-threatening accident.
Peter Rowlands lived a life packed full of adventure. As a climber, mountaineer, skier, surfer and kayaker, Pete constantly drove himself to the limit and lived life to the full.
In 2013 he was caught in an avalanche which swept him over a cliff. Despite falling 140 metres and suffering serious brain injuries he survived. His prognosis was that in time he might be able to communicate by blinking.
Nine years later he has made a remarkable recovery and though sheer determination recovered his fitness levels. Pete does have speech problems and an odd gait but he has gone on to find new challenges. He has recently cycled the equivalent distance to once around the equator and continues to live life to the full.
