Age: 46 | Occupation: Senior Maritime Operations Officer (HM Coastguard)
I wanted to enter an endurance event that challenged me more than the average sportive.
A brutal, emotional & exhausting event that will push you to your physical and mental limits and beyond.
Riding along the Dorset coast road up to Hardy’s Monument on a crystal clear cold night lit by bright moonlight
Don’t shy away from hills. They will bite you on the day if you avoid them in training.
Ride at least two thirds distance before the event.
Ride the event & train for it with a partner. You should both have the same aims, mental & physical preparedness to get to the finish on time.
