I am a keen cyclist try to cycle a least 100 mile a week.
I currently own two bikes cheap mountain bike and a Dawes Horizon. The latter of which is now about 8 years old. In the last year I have replaced and upgraded almost all the parts on the bike.
Although I have completed many rides over 100 miles I have only ever done one long distance tour. This tour was from Bedford to Lossiemouth for my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
