There are some roads on every cyclists map which for one or another reason are avoided. Too steep, too narrow, too rocky, or too annoying... I decided to tackle some some of those routes to see I they really represent a challenge I labelled them with.
A ride on a frosty Saturday morning? Yes, please! This time we decided to break our tradition of riding loops and frying bacon on gas stoves, and reach a destination a bit further from our doorstep. We picked Weymouth - a beautiful place in Dorset, famous for it's beach, holiday vibes and Georgian architecture, some 30 miles away from our starting point in Poole.
Dartmoor National Park is one of not many places in the UK where wild camping is perfectly legal. Being quite inexperienced in finding a place to sleep in the wild, I thought this would be the perfect place to start. Dartmoor taught me that, and more.
TMB is one of those rides which you can never fully prepare for. For amateur riders (and likely pros too!) it's a true adventure testing your body and character on so many levels. After all we're talking about riding a bike around one of the most famous mountain peaks in the world.
