About me.

ANDY BARTLETT​

In 2015 I was the founder & director of a successful event production company but, with a desire to find and discover more from the world I chose the road less travelled.  I left the business, packed my bags and headed out into the unknown.

 

From kayaking through Wales, cycling on the continent, or exploring South East Asia on a dilapidated scooter, I'm no stranger to filling my spare time with the new and adventurous. When not sleeping in a hammock or out rambling through the countryside I can often be found watching my beloved Gloucester Rugby or trying to convince my body that it really was built for running.

 

In the spring of 2016 I became the first person to stand up paddle board the length of the Danube River. From its source in Donaueschingen, Germany through 10 countries & 4 capital cites until it arrives at the Black Sea in Romania just shy of 3000km later.

June 2017 saw me Paddle Board the length of the second longest river in England - the Thames. 1 Country, 1 capital city, 240Km, 5 days.

For 2018 I returned to the Thames to set a new world record for the fastest descent of the river on a tandem paddle board.

I also cycled across Europe from London to the Black Sea in Romania. 3600 km taking in 11 countries and 6 capital cites in 30 days.

2019 was about bringing the dream of creating my own rolling adventure home into reality. 3 long weeks and lots of learning saw me emerge with my very own camper van which has become a gateway to exploring more of the wonderful country I call home.

2020 has so far seen me Stand up Paddle Board the length of the River Wye, cycle 850 miles along the Bryson Line from Bognor Regis to Cape Wrath and hike 105 miles along the Cotswold Way.
