Steve Large has set a new record for the double, completing the 'there and back' in 28 hours and 10 minutes. The very un-Welsh summer may have produced good ground conditions but the excessive heat and low natural water sources was the flip side of the coin and would have produced their own difficulties ... well done Steve and who knows, maybe someone else will attempt the double in another five years.
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'!
