Here we share the secrets to great microadventures. From tips on kit, gear and bikes to stories that will inpire you to open your mind to new adventures that challenge you to “turn down lanes you’ve long seen but never traveled” and get lost in the freedom of endless possibilities.
Adventure is the spirit of trying something new, trying something difficult. Above all, adventure is about enthusiasm, ambition, open-mindedness and curiosity.
– Alastair Humphreys, author and micro-adventurer
The best routes are the ones you haven’t ridden. You could pedal the same loops year after year. Many people do, literally or figuratively. But to grow, you need new rides. Risks. Turn down lanes you’ve long seen but never traveled. Get lost once or twice, then double back to where you started and try again
Live like this and you come to see unknown territory not as threatening, but as intriguing.
