    Summit #5: Denali (6190m)

    After +25.000 km cycling, rowing, sailing and skiing I finally made the summit of Denali with Julien Roels! An epic journey to the highest peak of North America. A rare approach that took some of my last energy getting there. Being the first team of the season created difficult conditions, freeing fixed lines and breaking […]

    Human powered to Denali +25.000km

    In October 2022 I cycled to Lorient (France) and sailed all the way to Panama. There I hopped on the bike to continue my human powered journey to Alaska! It took a total of more than 25.000km of cycling, rowing and sailing across Central and North America. The hardest part was the cycling trip in […]

    Summit #4: Kilimanjaro (5898m)

    A very special summit as a group of friends joined me for the 4th summit of the Secutec Seven Summits! So glad to be sharing this one, but sad to be ending my Africa adventure…

  • June 2021 – September 2021
    Human powered to Kilimanjaro +19.000km

    Handbiked from Belgium to the south of Spain where I crossed the Gibraltar strait by kayak. Then crossed 16 countries in Africa to get to Kilimanjaro and climb the 4th summit of this project!

    Summit #3: Carstensz Pyramid (4884m)

    It took me 2,5 years to finally arrive human powered to this mountain and climb it! A great achievement and the hardest approach so far.

  • May 2017 – December 2018
    Human powered to Carstensz pyramid +14.000km

    After climbing Everest I took the bike to southeast Asia where I started rowing to Papua. This took me a huge amount of physical and mental energy. The preparation was immense and so was the effort. The cycling part was easy but the rowing was pretty tough. A total of 6 months of rowing (+4000km) […]

    Summit #2: Mount Everest (8848m)

    After 2 tragic years in a row, I finally made it to the summit! At least I wanted to see how far I could go on this mountain so I returned to Nepal a 3rd time. I cycled and walked to Everest Base Camp again. This time no accidents occurred, I was extremely well prepared […]

    Human powered to Mt. Everest +10.000km

    Immediately after the summit of Mt Elbrus I descended down and continued cycling to Nepal. Which took me 10.000km through 2 deserts and the Tibetan plateau in winter. 4 months later I arrived in Nepal where I worked as a physiotherapist and prepared for the climb of Mount Everest.

    Summit #1: Mount Elbrus (5642m)

    After parking my bike it was time to climb this mountain. With 5642 m definitely not one to be underestimated. Luckily I was prepared an climbed to the summit and back in 4 days, all by myself.

  • 13/07 – 21/08/2013
    Human powered to Mt. Elbrus +3.800km

    After cycling East from Belgium to Terskol I arrived at the base of Mount Elbrus, the highest peak of Europe. I searched for a hotel, parked my bike and started climbing Mt Elbrus all by myself…

    The big start of a crazy adventure!

    I left Belgium with my bicycle, climbing and camping gear for a crazy project:  The Secutec Seven Summits, a human powered adventure. I want to climb the highest peak on every continent and go there by human power only. Little did I know how long this journey would take me…
