Roger Seaton grew up in Germany and the UK, after turning down a scholarship in music he joined the British Army and later freelanced in the private sector where time off allowed him to pursue his passion for climbing, diving and parachuting among other crazy adventures, most notably canoeing two thirds of the Zambesi and running across the Mojave Desert. Today Roger spends his time in Cheshire with his family, running ultramarathons, climbing and lots of cycling, preferable on his favourite bike...the CHPT3 Brompton.
