The Transcontinental

More endurance rides! Just an update. The Transcontinental kicks off tomorrow from London. The clock never stops.  Racers chose where, when and if at all to rest. They will race between London and Istanbul, there are only two mandatory controls, which ensure that racers visit some of the most famous pieces of road in Europe and connect with the suffering of their forebears.  The rest is up to them. Their forebear’s being the original Tour de France riders back in the early 20th Century. It might be early days for this event but, it’s easy to see the potential. Good luck to all the riders and stay safe. More info here.
