In 2004- Mark, rides the famous Lands End to John O'Groats route which inspires him to organize an even bigger challenge ARCTIC CIRCLE over 5500 miles in 12 days

Col De L' Iseran, French Alps, August 2005
On the 16th August 2005 Lloyd, Steve and Mark set off to ride over this pass and return home in 5 days. By the end of the first day we were just North of Bourges. The second night they were located in the French Alps just south of Annecy between Faverges and Albertville.

On the 18th August 2005 they set off for the Iseran. The ride up to Val D'Isere was hard going and further than anticipated on the Mountain roads, although the views were breath taking. The final climb was awesome; the route was basically a good "B" road. There were markers on the road side indicating in metres how high they had climbed. They got to the top at 13:30hrs, the climb up had been so quick they suffered the effects of high altitude, feeling nauseous.

The top was a barren waste land of rock and scree but truly a momentous moment. The ride down from the top was just as exhilarating, returning to camp after a 12 hr ride that is etched into all their minds. Over beers that night they talked of our great day as a thunder storm developed.
It was at this point Steve questioned whether his 6.99 Aldi tent would survive the night, but that's another story.

 

 

ARCTIC CIRCLE, August 2006 Simon & Mark complete the ARCTIC CIRCLE challenge, then exceeding all expectations by riding onto the NORDKAPP the northern most point in Western Europe. It was on that trip there hunger for more adventures became apparent. Unfortunately Lloyd & Steve could make the challenge due to family commitments. Charity money raised about £1800 and increasing as they both keep giving talks about there challenge.(email me if your interested in us giving a talk)

 

June 2007 saw the team back together with an exciting run to the Lake District riding on to Loch Lomond, Scotland.

The weather played its part in making the trip quite an experience, especially for the camping sides of things. Being constantly wet can take its toll, so thankfully we were able to combat this with some fantastic roads. Little traffic and miles of road through spectacular scenery...awesome.
