Adventuring is all about pushing limits and facing obstacles. It really doesn’t matter how big the adventure is or how far you’ve travelled to get there, the defining aspect of a true adventure, is how much it pushes and changes us physically, mentally and emotionally as an individual.
So many of us never experience real adventure because of our fear of leaving a comfortable space. We go through periods of restlessness and feeling unfulfilled by our day to day, whether it be because of our job, the place we live or the ways that we choose to spend our free time, but never make any real change. It takes an extraordinary kind of person to feel that restlessness and take action towards changing things. Sophie Radcliffe is one of those people.
The inspiring adventurer is one of the most recognisable faces in the UK adventure world, famous for the incredible challenges she sets for herself, she has raced through the jungles of Borneo, cycled between London and Paris in under 24 hours, climbed Mont Blanc and achieved a world-first expedition with the Alpine Coast to Coast, climbing the highest mountains in the eight alpine countries and cycling between them in 32 days.
Sophie recently teamed up with KEEN’s Better Takes Action campaign, an initiative launched to inspire people to engage their voice and energy into making a positive effect on the world, taking action today for a better tomorrow. We spoke to Sophie about becoming KEEN’s latest ambassador and her plans with the brand to empower women into becoming their best selves.
