I returned to the Transcontinental with a score to settle. Would I learn the lessons of last year's baptism of fire and finally reach the promised land of beer and ice cream I had been dreaming about for 12 months?
IMAGES FROM THE ROAD
The Transcontinental Race is a 4000km self-supported bike race across Europe from Belgium to Greece via 4 checkpoints. I took on the 5th edition of the TCR and things didn't go quite to plan...
The inaugural Transkernow race by Rockets & Rascals was inspired by the Transcontinental and shares its checkpoint format, traversing Cornwall's ancient moorland and craggy coasts.
2016: YEAR OF ADVENTURE
In 2016 I decided I would challenge myself to 12 adventures in 12 months as a way to ensure I made the best of the year. It shows how much travel and cycling you can pack in around a full-time job!
