Tell us your cycling story?
Very much a midfield to back of pack rider. Have tended towards ultra endurance events since riding the Freedom Trail. The appeal of these events for me is the isolation and personal challenge of ones self in self supported event: pushing personal physical and mental boundaries to see how far they can go.
