Loops of Great Windsor Park
The concept of riding as a team, and supporting each other in the early hours of the morning when we were all a little delirious.
It was FREEZING! This race takes place in October when the clocks go back, which does not make for a particularly temperate climate… especially at 3 am in the morning. Safe to say it was better on the bike than off.
Why this Race…
It is a real challenge of endurance and friendship! You are going to be in very close quarters with your team over the 25 hours so you want some good eggs with you, and good morale throughout!

Mid run Brainwave…
This one is courtesy of Em Y who decided to wear her sunglasses on her night ride only to come back in saying that it is dangerously dark out there and to take care. So our top tip is also to bring some clear glasses for the evening!
Literally any food we could find! The jacket potato and crepe food vans were dreamy!
