Team JMC riders Dave Powell and Jason Miles have ridden the entire 170 mile length of the new Way of the Roses route in a single day, achieving a record time of just 11 hours.

The amount of time spent checking the map and the GPS was minimal as the signposting of the route was very good indeed. The guys were also really impressed with the almost complete lack of busy main roads “if it’s a safe long distance route you’re looking for, The Way of the Roses really fits the bill. Hours and hours can pass by without seeing a single car – you do however see rather a lot of hills in the first half of the route!
