Book your place and join us for a one-of-a-kind evening celebrating exploration of some of the wildest places on earth. For our Penrith tour date we have two incredible speakers lined up: Lee Craigie and Greg Boswell.
Ex-pro mountain biker, long distance bike packer, one of the founders of The Adventure Syndicate and founder of Cycletherapy, Lee Craigie, inspires all with her epic feats of endurance on two wheels.
Greg Boswell is one of Scotland’s most experienced young climbers. Having started climbing in 2004 at the age of 13 he has since then tried to excel in most aspects of the sport. Greg is now infamous for fighting off a grizzly bear whilst climbing in the Canadian Rockies with Nick Bullock.
As well as hearing from Lee and Greg, we'll also be showing a selection of our favourite films from Kendal Mountain Festival 2017 – from flying above the Azores to freediving with Orcas, from skateboarding across Colorado to swimming in the wild ocean – you'll be taken on a journey you'll never forget!
Lee Craigie became the British Mountain Bike Champion in 2013 and represented Scotland at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, but the secret to her sporting success lay in her love of exploring big mountains by bike.
Fascinated by the places we can take ourselves emotionally by pushing our perceived limits, Lee's tales of adventure explore more than just the terrain she passes through.
Join her for an insight into the euphoria and the darkness that can be found on long distance, self-supported bike journeys.
Greg Boswell is one of Scotland’s most experienced young climbers. Having started climbing in 2004 at the age of 13 he has since then tried to excel in most aspects of the sport. He has travelled all over the world to pursue many different routes and conditions. Whilst gaining as much experience as possible, he has had the opportunity to meet some great people.
But his passion lies in Winter climbing and pushing his limits on hard Scottish Winter routes, and it is in this area that he has become renowned.
Since then he has gone on to be the first climber to onsight up to grade X/10 in the mountains and has put up some test piece routes as hard as grade XII/12. He has become well known for his punishing training regime and he belives this is what helps him to succeed around the globe on some of the worlds hardest mixed routes.
But to Greg climbing is much more than just chalking up the hard routes; it’s the people you meet along the way and the friends you make, the fun you have, it’s the adventure.
