Powering the Adventure Revolution


As part of our commitment to the #AdventureRevolution, we host regular social events where a speaker from our community shares their latest adventure with us. Come along to meet like-minded people and get inspired! Everyone is welcome but tickets must be bought in advance.

Follow the adventures of Neil Cox and Leanne Dyke as they battle their way across Iceland’s harsh interior highlands in a bid to complete an unsupported coast-to-coast packrafting traverse of the country. Their journey will take them over waterfalls, through snowy canyons and desolate volcanic landscapes as they attempt to achieve the first full source-to-sea descent of Iceland’s longest river, the Pjorsa.

Brendan Rendall took up running after a bet in 2006, training in the dark so no-one could see him. Ten years later, he became the first person to run the length of Malawi, raising £35,000 for charity. Last summer he spent three months running across Africa. Come along to hear Brendan’s hilarious tales of trials, tribulations and trainers, his battle with weight and how running transformed his life from drugs, alcohol and partying to a life of adventure.

3rd October, Bristol: Cycling from London to New Zealand

Jeremy Scott

On the 5th October 2011, Jeremy Scott began a challenge of a life time, a 2 ½ year, 51,916km solo bicycle ride from London to New Zealand. As he pedalled his way around the planet, Jeremy covered more than enough distance to circumnavigate the earth. This phenomenal journey was made possible thanks to the open-heart surgery which saved his life as a child. This incredible story highlights what anyone can achieve in life, if they are willing to take that first step.
