Powering the Adventure Revolution

SOCIALS

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

EC Stories Bristol - Rabbit Proof Fence

The Square Club, 15 Berkeley Square, Bristol BS8 1HB
Thursday 5th October 2017. Doors open 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
Tickets £6.60 (£4.40 for EC CLUB Members - find out more about EC CLUB)

Lindsey got into adventure after channeling some dark energy she acquired after losing her dad. She's cycled to Paris, the length of Britain and Africa. She swapped two wheels for rollerskates and skated to Bude in a nude suit (because it rhymed) and ran to Manchester with a ukulele.

Following eight years of wanting to walk the Rabbit Proof Fence she finally booked a one way ticket to Western Australia not knowing whether it was possible/feasible. With a minimum budget she ventured along the fence unsupported with only a trolley named Trevor (after her dad) who quickly became quite the companion. Hear about the many highs and lows, the wildlife, how being on her own sent her a little loopy and how having no expectations turned out to be one of the most beautiful endings she could have imagined.
