Adventures

From coastal rides around the Isle of Wight, to 3000 kilometre trans-European bike tours... below you will find links to the diverse range of adventurous, beautiful, and interesting cycling adventures completed to date.

  • #5MaratonasChallenge — A self-made challenge to ride the five historic routes of the Maratona dles Dolomites, over five consecutive days. 873 kilometres of riding, with 28,300 metres of climbing. A big week away.
  • #7Countries7Passes — From Denmark to Andorra, via some of the highest mountain passes in the Alps, Dolomites and Pyrenees. An incredible touring adventure.
  • #BlackForest400 — 400 miles, from the north of France to the German Black Forest. Non-stop and self-supported. A solo adventure. My longest ride to date. 
  • #RoadsFromRome — From Tuscany, to the Dolomites and Alps, and then onwards to the Black Forest, Netherlands, and finally back to the UK. The long road home from Rome. 
  • Coasts and Cols Tour — Northern Spain and the Pyrenees, then the entire west coast of France. This was an adventure to remember.
  • Festive 500 — 500 kilometres (then 500 miles) between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.
  • HERO Dolomites Südtirol — Branded the toughest mountain bike race in the world. The HERO Dolomites provided challenge and reward in equal measure.
  • #RoadsFromRome — From Rome, through Tuscany, The Dolomites, Austrian Alps, and Germany, to finish at the ferry in Rotterdam. 2300 kilometres of unsupported touring. 
  • TorTour Cyclocross Summer 2018 — Three days. Three stages. Three chances to explore the gravel roads in the beautiful Lucerne region of Switzerland. The TorTour Cyclocross Stage Race provides a lung bursting, leg busting challenge.
  • TorTour Cyclocross Winter Stage Race — Three days of racing in the snowy Swiss countryside. The ultimate early season test for body and kit; with a great result at the finish line.
  • XPDTN3 Dolomites — Bikepacking through the highest peaks in the Italian Dolomites. Remote alpine huts, wall-like gradients, and plenty of gelato.
