Back in the press!

Fame again! Back in the local press today. https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/17768472.swindon-bikers-complete-cross-country-1-100-mile-race-time/

Note: we did have a rest in between going up and coming back down. Total riding time was 42 hours with a decent rest included.

And, there is still time to donate to the two worth causes we were riding for: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/peter-genet-2?utm_term=zk3y2gxXM

Images from a Lights For Learning trip that I went on showing how bright the lights are.




Me and Stuart at Land’s End – I know, its a little obvious!

Ps, as a point to clarify, we did not receive Iron Butt certificates at the end of the ride. We submit the evidence first, and then, if approved, we will be offered the chance to get a certificate. The ride adjudicator takes a sceptical view of the evidence, but fingers crossed.

Ride to the Alps – September

Join us for a ride to the Alps this September where we will enjoy some great roads, great scenery, good beer (of course) and some good banter too!

Cornering – Never follow the lead rider!

No crashing here, but this short clip shows what can happen when following the lead rider – we all do it and will continue to do so!

This was filmed up past Brora on the A9 en-route to John O’Groats.

Iron Butt ride – The Long Way Up!

We did it! We rode from Chiseldon down to Land’s End all the way to John O’Groats in under 24 hours with 30 minutes to spare – total mileage of around 1,100!

More to come once photos sorted. Total mileage, including riding home was around 1,750 (arrived home 11.30pm 22 June).

Don’t forget to donate to the two worthy causes we did this for, RAF Benevolent Fund and Lights for Learning ; https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/peter-genet-2?utm_term=zk3y2gxXM††

Avoiding druids and hippies!

Amazingly we’ve only just realised we have to make a last minute adjustment to our route! We were planning to go via Stonehenge on the longest day forgetting that the world’s druids will also be in attendance! What a bunch of wallies we are!

Early start tomorrow and looking forward to a great ride raising cash for a couple of good causes: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/peter-genet-2?utm_term=zk3y2gxXM
