On Saturday the 15th September, Rob set out on a 28 mile MTB route starting in Hope Valley. The route took in some of the best and most challenging MTB runs in the country, including Jacobs ladder, and 'the beast'.
Apart from a few mechanical issues, the brake lever falling apart, and well worn bearings almost seized up, the ride went very well! The first 10 miles were completed with relative ease.
After around 20 miles the track was starting to take its toll, but after a 15min break Rob was good to go! He completed the ride in 7 hours and 17 mins, last place, but came home with the biggest smile!
There was great support from both the organisers and the riders, a definite must do for next year.
