He's basically riding a fixed?

How he's going to get up berriedale and helmsdale l don't know!!!

Shap must have been hard work!

Fair play to him!

Cheers James

only 70 miles to go. Will probably be there for dinner. Honestly did not think this one would make it, for me it's up there with any of the other records.

Hard man is RT. I have ridden fixed alongside him some years ago (the old C+ Forum fixed gang). Think he held the 24hrs fixed wheel record at one time. Training around Matlock on over 80" did the trick! All too easy, so switched to high wheelers!
Nice chap.
