What was your reason for wanting to ride the Trafalgar Way?

I wanted a different challenge, one that offered more than just a long ride

How would you sum up your ride of the Trafalgar Way to a friend?

It provides one of the toughest routes you will find not in elevation perhaps but there is a lot of night riding and you’ll discover more about yourself as an individual.

What was your most memorable part of the ride?

The camaraderie from fellow riders and the support crew, closely followed by riding down Whitehall towards the finish. An awesome way to finish any ride.

Castelli Gabba long sleeve jersey, Garmin to prove it happened, a decent saddle you get on with – it is a long way, good lights and check your tyres.
