Wired For Adventure Volume 13


“I refuse to let what happened in my past completely control my future.”

– Vanessa Ruck, Adventurer and WFA Cover Star

Kitesurfing, rock climbing, wakeboarding, scuba diving… Vanessa Ruck has done them all. From throwing herself out of aeroplanes, to spear fishing on remote islands, if ever anyone was Wired For Adventure, it’s Vanessa. So, when a bicycle accident on her daily commute threatened to rob her of the adventurous life she loved, Vanessa refused to take it lying down. Instead, she dusted herself off, put herself back together – and then she upped the ante.

In Volume 13 of Wired For Adventure magazine, read our interview with Vanessa and discover how she overcame seven reconstructive surgeries to take on some of the toughest endurance races in the world. Braving gnarly forest trails, scorching desert dunes, and impossible mountain ascents, she’s facing recovery head-on, one death-defying ride at a time. This is the incredible story of The Girl on a Bike.

Also in Volume 13

Join Peter Elia as he reveals what it’s like to climb your own private mountain, meet the batty Brit braving bears and thunderstorms as he races in Dracula’s backyard, and the single mum-of-two who tackled divorce, menopause, and a death in the family to SUP right across England.

Then there’s Elsie Wortley (aka Woman with Altitude), who’s following in the footsteps of famous female explorers from the past using only authentic kit – as well as a group of mountain bikers making the most of British Columbia’s backcountry. Plus, your chance to uncover a secret underwater world deep beneath the waves in the Seychelles.

We’ve got your autumn gear and kit covered, too. Performance base layers, waterproofs, hiking boots, and nifty gadgets to keep you warm and dry on your next adventure.
