Last weekend I completed a 69km wilderness ride that I had been wanting to do for a long time. It was a ten hour epic including a 4 mile hike your bike section through one of the wildest places in Scotland where hardly anyone has set foot. A few years ago this just simply wouldn’t have been possible for me as I suffered from burnout and spent several months unable to do even the simplest things such as meeting friends for a coffee. Fortunately, I turned my life around and found a much better balance to my work, life and adventure. Fin out how I balance work, life and adventure!
'extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking’
So I started thinking back over the (almost) 20 years I have lived in Argyll and all the adventures I have had, trying to pick out the best and most wonderful experiences to share with you. It took me back to extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking and edge of the world mountain ridges. It makes me feel the wind in my hair, the sun on my skin, the exhilaration of reaching the top, the sheer joy of seeing wildlife and the peacefulness of feeling at one with nature and the sheer delight of a fire in a remote island spot.
