5 Top Tips for Microadventures

5 Top Tips for Microadventures

By Alex Guerrero

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

  1. Let your mind wander. Write your ideas down and do it.
  2. Always pack a Soreen loaf
  3. Start off in the garden.
  4. When bikepacking, never pass a cafe without buying something.
  5. 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.
