Alex Roddie


Regular contributo­r Alex has been focusing on a new learning curve this year: fastpackin­g, blending ultralight backpackin­g with his new-found passion for running. He’s enjoyed some cracking trips to the Peak District and Scottish Highlands (Tranter’s Round was a highlight), as well as the Lake District – an area he’d been neglecting for years. It’s been a year of more social adventures, too, and he’s currently preparing for a big summer route across the Alps. See his review of backpackin­g food on p74.
