Description

Guide to Adventure Sports: UK is the definitive handbook for anyone seeking action-packed adventure in the UK. It provides everything you need to know about over 40 adventure sports - from Abseiling to Zorbing. Divided into three sections - air, land and water - each sport has the following information: an overview of the sport; how to get involved; the equipment that you need; how much the sport will cost; national associations and bodies, etc; world records; companies and clubs (by geographic region) and a unique ratings system, including 'thrill factor' and 'buzz for your buck'. The 'thrill factor' has been developed by the authors to create a ranking system to determine how much of an adrenaline kick we get for a first-time experience of each sport. Calculated from both the increased percentage in heart rate when doing the sport for the first time, and the cost of a 'taster day' or beginners session for each sport, the authors came up with their unique 'buzz for your buck' ranking. This book is ideal for dedicated enthusiasts, people looking to try an adventure sport for the first time and anyone who wants inspiration to try something new when they have a spare weekend.
