A Quest for Adventure

BY ALASTAIR HUMPHREYS
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 09, 2009

Alastair Humphreys is one incredible person. He has cycled around the world (it took him 4 years), raced a yacht across the Atlantic Ocean, canoed 500 miles down the Yukon River, and walked the length of the holy Kaveri river in India. He also ran the Marathon des Sables (finishing as one of the ten fastest Brits despite breaking his foot during the race), and rowed to France with Major Phil Packer -- a soldier paralysed in Iraq.
