The next few cycling escapades in order of completion include:
April 3rd – April 5th: I will be undertaking my Advanced Mountain Bike Leader Award. I already hold the Multi Day Tour Leader Award which is suitable for long tours on the road. Being able to confidently take groups off the tarmac and into some beautiful, peaceful countryside is the main advantage and incentive of holding the Advanced MTB Award. Both awards have been led and organised by Cycling UK (CTC). https://www.cyclinguk.org/courses-and-training.
May 26th 2018 – May 29th 2018: Coast to Coast ride (Way of the Roses) with a small group of teenagers. This will be about twenty young kids tackling the 170 miles from Morecambe to Bridlington.
July 15th 2018 – July 18th 2018: Coast to Coast ride (Way of the Roses) with NHGS. Forty one students will be riding to raise money for their school. Please donate here https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/NHGSC2C3. For information on the route click this link: http://wayoftheroses.info/route.
July 21st 2018 – July 23rd 2018: I will be doing the 98 mile off road West Highland Way. For this trip I will be travelling light and doing some proper bikepack bivvying 🙂 You can find information from the official site here. https://www.westhighlandway.org/.
July 28th 2018 – August 13th 2018: Cycle tour of the first half of the river Danube. Starting in the Black Forest of Germany and ending 1300km later in Budapest, Hungary. This is the offical site for the route. https://www.danube-cycle-path.com/.
As I do the routes I will be blogging more frequently to inform you of the cycling to inspire ideas and trips of your own.
