Last night, local CTC member John Weller gave us a talk about his experience of participating in the 2015 Transcontinental Race from Belgium to Istanbul.
John raced 2,600 miles on a bicycle in one of the toughest endurance events in the world of cycling. There was no support along the way! And no official route: a start line in Geraardsbergen (Belgium) and a finish line in Istanbul (Turkey) via four checkpoints – Mont Ventoux (France), Strada dell’Assietta (Italy), Vukovar (Croatia) and Mount Lovcen (Montenegro).
Rather than a report, here are some photos of John and his bike!
The evening raised £110 for the Cyclists’ Defence Fund.
