Alastair Humphreys

Alastair Humphreys is an adventurer, blogger, author and motivational speaker. He produces a monthly newsletter with the highlights of the blog and important expedition news.

As well as expeditions such as cycling round the world, walking across India and rowing the Atlantic, Alastair was named as a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year for his pioneering work on the concept of microadventures, trying to encourage people to get outside, get out of their comfort zone, go somewhere they’ve never been. A microadventure is an adventure that is close to home, cheap, simple, short, and yet very effective.

Alastair's six books for Eye include the highly acclaimed The Boy Who Biked the World trilogy – a series of novels for 9–12-year-olds based on his own real-life adventures, plus Moods of Future Joys, Thunder and Sunshine and Ten Lessons from the Road. He is very well-regarded as a motivational speaker for corporate events and schools.
