Two bikes and a baby: A climbing expedition like no other

Author: Ollie Rooke

How much of an adventure can you have within 62 miles of your front door? It’s a question that few of us would have considered pre-2020, until everything changed…

But, we’re not here to dwell on those events. Travel restrictions don’t need to spell the end of adventure. Take professional climbers Caroline Ciavaldini and James Pearson for example.

Keeping to the 62-mile limit of French travel restrictions they embarked on a month-long bike tour of their local climbing crags with their young son Arthur, the smallest (and cutest) spotter imaginable, in tow.

Adventure isn’t a destination, it’s a mindset, and this video demonstrates that perfectly. Enjoy.
