We all know or have someone in our lives who has battled or is continuing to battle this awful, cruel illness, some with and others without success. Family, friends and others who have fought this illness have done so with the help of amazing doctors and nurses throughout their treatment and care. I will be raising money to help their cause!
On the 26th May 2018 I will be racing the Highland Trail 550 fully self supported. The trail explores 550 miles of the most rugged and remote terrain in the Scottish Highlands. The route features world class singletrack and dirt roads with stunning views throughout, but you must put in some serious effort to reap the rewards. The most impressive sections will require some hike-a-bike for even the most proficient mountain bikers. With 550 Miles, 52,000ft of ascent and 9/ 10 on the difficulty scale the rules are pretty simple your on your own!
Complete the entire route, under your own power - no drafting
Be completely self-supported throughout the ride - absolutely no support crews, absolutely no gear sharing
Only use commercial services that are available to all challengers - no private resupply, no private lodging
If you have to leave the route, you must rejoin it at the exactly same spot
No caches of any kind
No pre-arranged support, which means before you begin your ride - e.g. booking a B&B, arranging to meet a vehicle
No travel by any motorized means during your ride - by all means do so if necessary, but understand if you do your attempt is over
Gear - nothing required, nothing prohibited
