My story

[p]Hannibal Barca has long been recognised as one of the greatest military strategists of all time, his legendary exploits against the Roman Empire in the 3rd Century BC have established his reputation as a tenacious and brilliant strategist and leader. [/p] [p]in 218 BC he infamously led a huge army of Carthaginian soldiers on an epic campaign to boldly attack the Romans by crossing Europe from his base in Spain, through Gaul (modern France) and into their own back yard of Northern Italy. [/p] [p]The 2017 In Search of Hannibal Expedition is hoping to travel the route as close as possible, using the contemporary texts as a guide to look at what has changed in over 2000 years, and to get close to the physical task that Hannibal and his men undertook. [/p] [p]As a passionate adventurer and wanting to get close to the physical elements of Hannibals journey, this expedition will be undertaken by bike. James is a qualified Mountain Bike Instructor and has cycled routes around the world, as well as leading mountain bike expeditions in Morroco, Thailand and South America. [/p] [p]The expedition will be lightweight and will provision on route as Hannibal would have had to do, testing ingenuity, physical ability and undertaking one of the great journeys of history.[/p]
