Outdoor tourism has evolved beyond the landscape. Attention to local people and ecosystems while at the same time enjoying the world's most desirable locations is the new bent in outdoor travel.
In this episode of PATHFINDERS, we follow a group of bike fanatics whose challenge is to climb Mount Kenya, the 2nd highest peak in Africa, to come cycling back down. Some years ago, they wouldn't have bothered with what was happening in the country. Today, they want their presence to be useful even on a modest scale. Their athletic challenge will help finance a pump to bring water to areas of southern Kenya suffering from a dramatic drought.
