Starting tonight (Wednesday 13th April) and ending sometime at the weekend, Jason Miles and Guy Martin will be riding their bikes coast to coast across Scotland from Berwick on Tweed to Stranraer, riding all of the 7 Stanes mountain bike trails along the way.
On arrival in Stranraer, they’ll be getting on a ferry to Northern Ireland (Friday evening hopefully) and riding from coast to coast there too, including riding the four MTB trails over there. The total distance is about 600 miles, with about 150 miles of it off-road.
They’ll be dining on petrol station cuisine and sleeping in bus shelters, but mainly they’ll be pedaling. A lot.
All this is in aid of the Ride For Michael charity, helping a friend get back on his bike after an accident that left him paralysed from the neck down. More details including a link to donate can be found here.
Please support this amazing effort for an amazing cause.
