This weekend sees Jane Pritchard and Jenny Lucas, amongst others, setting out from Land’s End to ride to John O’Groats over the coming week. They are aiming to ride around 80 miles per day.
Then the following weekend (August 21st), Daryol Laws and Simon Barfoot have the challenge of a 1200 kms ride when they take part in the 17th Paris-Brest-Paris Audax ride. They will be rolling out of Paris at 2100 hrs on the Sunday and have 90 hours to complete the distance.
Good luck to them all, let’s hope they have lots of tailwinds on their journeys!
