The King Alfred’s Way: 220miles on a gravel bike with Jo Meek
King Alfred’s Way is a 350km circular off road cycle route. The route was developed by The CTC to help create a network of long cycling distance paths. It connects four of England’s National Trails: North Downs Way, South Downs Way, Ridgeway and Thames Path on its journey.
Setting off on a wet blustery morning from Amesbury was daunting. Bike packing was meant to be a fair weather activity surely!! Ha ha!
A day of racing - The Lakeland trails 100km
Jo Meek - The Running Squirrel
I entered this race because I wanted to try and qualify for the GB World Trails Championships (top 2). Entering was the easy part.

My first race of 2021. Those pre-race nerves had been long forgotten but this time were welcomed. I get horribly sweaty palms even after 20years of racing! The old routine fell into line as I got up at 5. Had a coffee and then left home to travel 2hours to the race which started at 9. We all queued up to get our bib numbers 2m apart. It felt great to pin on a bib number again.

James and Des realised athletes all have different needs and there were so many different sports nutrition products available but not always in the quantities you would necessarily need or that maybe suited you.READ MORE
