At the end of this month the clocks go forward to mark the start of British Summer Time – losing us one hour in bed, but gaining us extra daylight to do more of the things we love. So on the night of the 24th, a group from howies and writer/ cyclist Rob Penn have invited a few of us from The Bristol Bike Project amongst others to join them for a night-long bike ride across Wales, from beach to border. The 115 mile race against the sun begins in the early evening in Cardigan. Riding east through the night on dark back roads, over rolling hills and alongside lakes, the route will take us over some of the country’s most infamous peaks, before descending into Rob’s hometown of Abergavenny, in time for the sunrise. Some of us will be fast, some of us will be slow, some of us may not even make it to the finish. There will be flat tyres and deflated souls, mud, blood, sweat and struggle – the stuff that makes strong hearts and legs. But whatever happens, there’ll be no time to rest.
We are SO excited about this! Can’t wait…..
