Monday, 8th September
Today I should be joined by a group of colleagues from Dulux R&D!
Riders will leave Bath via the south west edge of the Cotswolds prior to the superb crossing of the Severn Bridge into the beautiful Forest of Dean. There will be a long steady climb up from the River Wye in Chepstow prior to entering Herefordshire on the more undulating run into Ludlow via Leominster
Again, a similar-but-different route from Jonny (link). I’m hoping we don’t get lost and climb any unnecessary hills.
As part of the Dulux Cycle Challenge, I’m riding to raise money for The Outward Bound Trust: “We aim to help young people realise their potential through learning in the wild. We create a supportive and challenging environment in which young people can learn about themselves and see clearly, perhaps for the first time, what they might truly be capable of achieving in life.”
