#GetOutside champion Dan Grant

In 2015 we launched the #GetOutside campaign to urge people off the sofa, to ditch the car and to enjoy the outdoors along with our ambassadors, wildlife presenter Steve Backshall, endurance adventurer Sean Conway and Everest climber Bonita Norris. In 2016 we've recruited 15 official #GetOutside champions who represent Ordnance Survey with their true #GetOutside spirit. 5 years ago, Dan Grant suffered a heart attack when he was only 38 years old. Determined to improve his quality of life, Dan ditched the cigarettes, reviewed his diet and got on his bike. Since then, Dan has challenged himself to ride various long distance rides and will be cycling the 190 mile trip from London to Paris in 2016. https://www.os.uk/getoutside/filter/?ambassadors=dan-grant
