Escaping everyday life needn’t wait for the weekend – cycle out to the countryside and return to your desk next morningNungwi Village
Alastair Humphreys has cycled around the world, walked across India and rowed across the Atlantic, but he captured my imagination with his adventures much closer to home. These include walking a lap of the M25, drifting down a river on tractor inner tubes, sleeping on the highest point in his county and cycling around the Isle of Wight.
He defines these “microadventures” as overnight, outdoor activities that are “achievable for normal people with real lives. They are local, cheap, brief and non-elitist, and open the door for total beginners to sample adventures without feeling intimidated or out of their depth.”Nungwi Village
