Reaching Everest was always the dream, but after an avalanche stopped Alex the first time and an earthquake the second, he resolved to cycle to the highest points of the United Kingdom. But a history of anxiety, depression, and eating disorders made this his hardest mission yet.

Reaching Everest was always the dream, but after an avalanche stopped Alex the first time and an earthquake the second, he had to take a step back. But even as he climbed down, he couldn't stop wondering 'What's next?'

A restlessness in his bones, and a need to help make things better after the lives claimed in his two climbs, led Alex to his hardest mission yet: ClimbTheUK; to cycle to the highest points of the United Kingdom.

But a history of anxiety, depression, and eating disorders rears its multiple heads once more, making this the hardest thing Alex has ever had to do. Finding himself alone too often, with only his thoughts for company, it becomes less of a fight of man and nature and more of man and mind.
