About A Life of Adventure

A Life of Adventure is about participatory sport and adventure – races, rides, expeditions, events, training for them, preparing, participating and competing. We don’t usually do mountaineering or professional sport, nor machines, either - instead it’s about the things that will inspire YOU to get out there and get active.

It’s about motivation, training and swapping advice, and it’ll give you the view from the ground, the grunt and graft during participation. And let’s not forget our adventurous ancestors, so there are historic stories about adventurers too.

A Life of Adventure was almost named Adventure, Adventure, Adventure… in a play on Location, Location, Location… Basically it’s the antidote to nesting. So if you are happiest when working your body hard in an exotic location and you feel a small ache of dissatisfaction at our daily diet of stories about rather badly behaved professional footballers, if you feel an urge, to get out there and do something intensely physical, then this site will have lots of ideas for you.
