Cycling UK and OS Maps just launched a new film on how to wild camp responsibly. Featuring Vedangi Kulkarni—the youngest woman to cycle solo around the world—this short video shows would-be wild campers how to leave the countryside as they found it, or better…
As part of Cycling UK and OS Maps’ joint work to encourage more people to discover and enjoy the outdoors more responsibly, the two organizations have launched an awareness film on how to wild camp responsibly, specifically in the UK. From advice on where to camp to how to properly dispose of human waste to packing out others’ trash as well as your own, they aim to give people the skills and wider awareness needed to leave the countryside in a better state than when they found it.
“One of the horror stories of the past year and a bit has been of how people have headed to some of this island’s most beautiful locations, spent a magical time overnight, and then just left it in a complete tip. I’m hoping with this short film, we’ll help many of them think twice about what they’re doing, while also providing valuable tips for those who wanted to ensure they leave no trace when they head outdoors.” -Vedangi Kulkarni
Cycling UK’s Cape Wrath Fellowship custodian, Sam Jones, who has camped out at least once a month for the past two and a half years, wants to see everyone to make the most of the wilderness they can discover from their doorstep and leave it in a better condition than they found it. “The outdoors is there for everyone to enjoy, whether they’re walking, riding or running,” said Sam. “With that enjoyment comes responsibility, which is why #12nightsoutin1year focus is just as much about enjoying the countryside, as ensuring it’s in a better state than when we found it. Trash free trails are something we can and should all work towards every time we head out.”
