Richard Parks, ex Welsh rugby international turned endurance athlete, is on six adrenaline filled journeys that explore the very best of Wales and what it has to offer for the keen adventurer. Cycling from the Brecon beacons to the summit of Mt Snowdon, Caving in the Ogof Ffynnon Ddu , the deepest cave system in the UK, and following the River Teifi, running and Kayaking, Richard meets the passionate people for which these Welsh adventures are a way of life. He’s on a mission to find out not only why adventure is so important to Wales, but also why Wales is so important to adventure.


Richard is not a fan of enclosed spaces, but deep in the Ogof Ffynnon Ddu cave system in the Brecon Beacons, he attempts to overcome his fears during a subterranean adventure like no other. Joined by Gary Evans and friends from the South Wales Caving Club, he is on a two-day mission that will take him from the top entrance, to the deepest point of this, the deepest cave in the UK. Through a labyrinth of tunnels, past the stalactites of gnome passage chamber, down underground waterfalls and through the squeezes of Diver’s pitch, his challenge is to descent over 900 feet to complete his challenge.
