3 Peaks Cycle Challenge

With fellow adventurer and friend Sean Conway, we took on the epic 3 Peaks Cycle Challenge which involved climbing the three highest peaks in the UK; Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis and cycling 725km between them over three days. To complete this challenge, we were on the move for 19 hours a day, wild camping each night for a few hours and enjoying this amazing opportunity to explore the UK. We endured wind and rain, freezing conditions in Scotland, where Sean’s beard froze, punctures and lack of sleep to complete it. It opened up a whole new world to me, helping me realise I could take on bigger challenges and formed the inspiration for my world first Alpine Coast to Coast.
