Dom Millar said, “When we set off none of us knew for certain if we’d get close to finishing this ride. It involved 29 days of 100 to 140 miles each day over some of the lumpiest terrain in Great Britain. The longest comparable ride any of us had done previously was just six days.
It was far from easy, but we were well prepared, had an amazing team around us and were helped by over 100 cyclists from all over the country who joined us for a day or two. We’re extremely grateful for all the support, and delighted that our crazy adventure will ultimately help people from all walks of life through the four charities, all of which are close to our hearts.”
