Editor’s note: Tim Moss is another pioneer of helping people find the adventures in everyday life; thus he calls them Everyday Adventures. I’ve called them Backyard Adventures since 1999. And, another friend, Alastair Humphreys has coined the phrase microadventures. Tim is currently cycling around the world, but his adventures big and small are so extensive that we can’t even list them all. Here are a few highlights in his words:
Tim entered the world of expeditions through mountaineering with climbing expeditions to Kyrgyzstan, Bolivia and the Russian Altai where he made the first and first-British ascents. He then undertook several charity challenges including travelling around the world in eighty ways using different methods of transport to circumnavigate the globe, running up five thousand flights of stairs to the height of Mount Everest, and completing his own 15-hour triathlon to get to his friend Thom’s house on the Isle of Wight.
His subsequent larger expeditions have included walking across Patagonia and crossing the Wahiba Desert on foot. Whilst working full time on The Next Challenge, however, he also broke a Guinness World Record by cycling 1,000 miles in a rickshaw, hitch-hiked around the UK on a £100 budget, and ran the length of every London Underground train line.
He is currently cycling around the world (August 2013 – December 2014).
