The Trans Cambrian Way?

The Trans Cambrian Way is a long distance mountain bike route spanning the width of Wales from Knighton to Dovey Junction on the west coast. The route is approximately 100 miles long and crosses through some very remote countryside. Originally devised and mapped by IMBA, it was intended to be a 3 day ride. There are plenty of riders who will find a 3 day crossing a satisfying challenge ... then there are the 'others'!

June 3rd - 17 Hour attempt

On 3rd June Mike Thomas, Paul Marshall and James
Colbrook will attempt the TCW (east - west) with the goal of completing in 17 hours or less. There's a strong desire to succeed as they're raising money for two charities that are very close to Mikes heart following the tragic death of his new born son in 2009.

A time of 17 hours is certainly achievable but you still need a little luck on your side. Bad weather, mechanicals or errors in navigation can eat up the hours much quicker than you might think ... but hey, you knew that anyway.

You can sponsor their endeavours by clicking HERE and keep up to date with how it's going HERE. I'll report back after the 3rd to let you know how they got on.
