One of our Wilderness Award applicants, Gary Seabrook, has had to defer the long distance bike ride that was the focus of his application. Instead, he's going to use the time to raise money for Surfers Against Sewage, which works tirelessly to keep our coastline free of waste, by walking the Camino de Santiago. If you want to support him and his excellent cause, you can donate here:

Someone called Gemma has just emailed me via our website to ask about our Award but didn't give me her email address, so I can't reply. If you are reading this, Gemma, go to About Us then the Wilderness Award page - you'll find the guidelines and application form there.

We've just fixed our last event for the forthcoming season. We're delighted to announce that Sarah Outen will be with us on February 8th 2017. Last time she visited us, she told us about her solo row across the Indian Ocean - the first woman and only the 4th person to complete that journey. Most people would probably consider that a sufficient achievement but not Sarah. In 2011 she set out to circumnavigate the globe under human power- an epic trip that she finally completed 4.5 years later.

We're beavering away at sorting out our winter programme and all the slots up to Christmas are now full with only a few remaining to be confirmed in the spring.

We're kicking off with one of the UK's best known adventurers, Leon McCarron, telling us about his recent journey on foot around the troubled lands of the Middle East.

We're hosting a fund-raiser for Community Action Nepal, featuring one of the world's greatest mountaineers, Doug Scott, telling the story of what, for many, was the sport's greatest achievement since Everest was first climbed - the ascent of its awesome South West Face in 1975.

Laura Stone will be telling us about cycling in the Himalaya; Wanderlusts' editor, Phoebe Smith, will be sharing her experiences; Kev Brady will be recounting some of his adventures; Ants will be back with her account of a solo motor cycle journey down the Ho Chi Minh trail and Bristol's own Steve Bell, visiting from down under, will talk about his reflections on gong from an adolescent climber to one of the best mountaineers of his generation.

After Christmas, so far, we have Martyn Ashton, one time British and World Champion mountain bike trials rider, stunt rider and team manager; our Wilderness Award winner Joe Johnstone recounting his ice-walk across Mongolia's frozen Lake Khuvsgul and Kev Reynolds, whose guidebooks to the Alps and elswhere will be sitting on the shelves of many of you.
