Summer Solstice Microadventure Challenge: Look What People Are Doing!

The Summer Solstice Microadventure Challenge is well under way, and it’s brilliant to see so many people getting out and making the most of these long summer evenings.

Have a look at these pics, get inspired, get planning, join the challenge, and get out there!

I’ll leave the last words to Rebecca May, who wrote this on Instagram:

  • Rolling on a river. My 24 hour adventure after work on Friday. In that time I rowed my lil dinghy which I bought from Gumtree a few weeks back for £70. I went through places that I’ve known since childhood, but the world looks so different from the water, so I didn’t know where I was half the time! This was mid morning on Saturday. I’d slept in my bivvy bag in the boat that night, woken up, had a swim, eaten my brioche and banana breakfast and paddled on to the next lock. People on the river are so friendly, I got invited to two different barbecues by complete strangers that day. I told people I met that were interested in my story, and they went off with dreamy looks in their eyes and mutterings of buying their own boat 😊 I paddled until the end of the day, learning and making up knots as I went 😂 and reached a pub by the evening, where I had arranged to meet my grandparents. The pub is maybe a 20 minute drive from my house. But like a friend said, I’m never going to look back in 30 years and remember that time I drove to the pub. 😊
    – I’m definitely doing this again. 💙
