Adventure No.1

 

The South Downs Way

 

From Little Acorns

 

15 years ago (half my lifetime) my dad and his brother Bill took me on a bike ride along the South Downs Way, our local strip of wilderness. It was a proper adventure where things went wrong. Waking up and watching the sunrise after an unplanned night sleeping in a dutch barn was a formative memory that cemented in my mind that this was what it's all about.

 

So what better way, I thought, to kick off my year of adventures than by doing that journey again with dad…
