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

I wanted to take on a decent physical challenge but have young kids so needed it to be relatively short in duration!

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

A great experience. The event is really well run, the route is fantastic and the camaraderie with the other riders is what makes the difference between this and other organised cycling events I have done.

What was your most memorable part of the ride?

The Dorset coast and also the sun coming up as we rode into London are probably my stand out moments.

What are your top 3 tips for anyone thinking of riding the Trafalgar Way?

Don’t hesitate, just do it!

Ride with a friend or try and contact other people to ride with you on the day. I trained and rode with a friend and this made a massive difference.

Do some night riding while training

What are your top bits of equipment or kit you wouldn’t want to ride the Trafalgar Way without?

A decent GPS, not so much for the route (which was really well signed), but to keep a track of your average speed and time spent at feed stops.

A good light for the night leg

What bike (make and model) and chainset / cassette set up did you ride the Trafalgar Way with (if available)?

Orro Pyro with 50/34 chain-set and an 11/28 cassette
