In Detail

Alastair spent over 4 years cycling round the world, a journey of 46,000 miles through 60 countries and 5 continents. More recently Alastair has walked across southern India, rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, run six marathons through the Sahara Desert, completed a crossing of Iceland, busked through Spain and participated in an expedition in the Arctic, close to the magnetic North Pole. He has trekked 1000 miles across the Empty Quarter desert and 120 miles round the M25, one of his pioneering microadventures. In 2023, The Royal Geographical Society gave Alastair the Ness Award for "his long-standing contributions to promoting a greater understanding of our world and wider public engagement with the outdoors."


Alaistair's expeditions provide a spectacular, original case study of self-motivation, setting small targets to achieve outrageous goals, the rewards of risk and teamwork, the power of storytelling, overcoming difficult times and self-doubt, the magnificence of our world, and a call to arms that nothing is achieved without being bold enough to begin it.
