Longest Day Longest Ride 24hr MTB Race!

Lakes Road Club rider Gary Spencely recently rode the “Longest Day Longest Ride” MTB race on the Isle of Man, and despite never having ridden a mountain bike before – ever – completed 49 laps of the approximately 3 mile course to record a total distance of 149 miles to come in 9th place!

Brilliant (and obviously mad) ride Gaz – plenty of kudos earned there!

The Longest Day Longest Ride 24 Hour Endurance event is run at the Conrhenny Plantation on the Isle of Man on the summer solstice every year, on a 3 mile course which includes riding on forest roads, single tracks, and over boardwalks through the forest, for a full 24 hours, with money being raised for a range of charities.

The 2018 event is scheduled for 16th and 17th June 2018 – if you’re interested in riding no doubt Gaz will give you a few tips, and check out their website here.
