Despite getting reasonably good at quitting events in 2016 and subsequently accepting it, I felt I had unfinished business with the Trans Cambrian route. When the opportunity arose to have another crack at it with a group, I jumped at the chance. The power of group motivation, the camaraderie, the banter, the guaranteed good weather. … Continue reading
Waking up under a tarp, free of all the trappings of modern society, fresh air, the inspiring view. It’s why we bike pack to remote places isn’t it? To get away from it all.

And finally a mountainous monster with a descent. Froome beware. First the time trial. A very good example … Continue reading
