One Month to go - Marc’s cycling challenge

Marc originally had plans to cycle from home in South Birmingham to Llanberis in Snowdonia national park which is 121 miles and hiking to summit of Snowdon in one day.

Covid-19 has put a delay on these plans, do not worry, 2021 he will be making this journey. He is very much to looking forward to doing this.


********** Modern Slavery Awareness New Plans*************


I have been training on the road and off road during Lockdown within the guideline set by Government and did not want to let this opportunity pass without completing a personal challenge.

Unable to cross Welsh Borders and prospect of large groups in Snowdonia, if open again to others, I do not want to take the risk and there will be other times (next year for example) to complete my original challenge.

Together we can combat modern slavery, and this is my way to further highlight the work of Medaille Trust, voices of the clients and potential victims around UK and worldwide. I wanted to use my challenge to make a difference any way I could.

***I can announced the new plans are***


I am off for the fantastic named 'Autumn Rivers' in the middle of summer! Lots of great scenery, hills and fantastic day of riding

Thank you to Phil Whiteman and Beacon RCC for designing this route.

I was hoping to take part in this ride anyway so perfect chance to definitely do this and some solo riding as well.

Here is the review for the ride: The Autumn Rivers Audax is cycling at its best. It’s about a good distance in a day, riding at a sensible pace with good company, travelling through quiet and pleasant countryside in the orange glow of an autumn day before winter arrives.

Soak in the autumnal colours of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire as your cross the Teme, Wye, Severn and Avon valleys. The ‘free-controls’ are located in three cafe rich and cake laden market-towns with plenty of opportunities to share a coffee with fellow audaxers.

This was the original Beacon Autumn Audax route and has returned by popular by demand. The route is aimed to please those that enjoy the hills and the flats. The first third of the route is relatively hilly until just after Ross-on-Wye, after which it is a quick sweep across the Severn Vale to edge of the Cotswolds before swinging north through the Vale of Evesham and the gentle climb back to Belbroughton. For most part, the route uses lanes, B roads and short sections of quiet A road. The countryside is varied from the hilly downs of Bromyard to the deep valleys of the Wye, the yellow stone of the Cotswold and agricultural Vale of Evesham.
