This Wednesday, we had our first Winter Webinar of the year. We chatted all things adventure. But smaller. Microadventures, to be precise. We had around 500 people watching the webinar. And a good few of them wanted to start an Alpkit Book Club! Here’s a bit about our panelists:
Alastair Humphreys: Alpkiteer, Writer, Adventurer, Podcaster
Emma Kingston: Author of 'Bikepacking England', Teacher, Bikepacker
Sarah Leighton: Youtuber on 'Fit for Adventure' channel, Paddler, Hiker, Bikepacker
5 Top Tips for Microadventures
Let your mind wander. Write your ideas down and do it.
Always pack a Soreen loaf
Start off in the garden.
When bikepacking, never pass a cafe without buying something.
If you're unsure about solo wild camping, plan a route that ends at a campsite. You get the thrill of the adventure and know you'll finish somewhere safe.
