This site concentrates on non competitive outdoor sports, where the only
person you are competing against is yourself. Pushing yourself that little
bit further, practising until you get it right, gives you a great sense of
achievement. There is also that wonderful feeling of well-being as you become
part of the beautiful rugged outdoor world.
