The South Downs Way stretches 100 miles from Eastbourne to Winchester incorporating over 10,000 feet of hill climbing. Some fit cyclists have ridden the off road route in 1 day. Less than 15 people have ridden 200 miles for the South Downs Double within 24 hours. Richard Sterry is taking on 300 miles of the South Downs Triple. The target time is 36 hours.
Riding all day and all night, Richard will then ride for the whole of the next day to cover the 300 miles. This challenge has not been achieved before, so Richard has an experienced support crew consisting of several top 24 hour solo racers.
