The Hobbit's Tale Ride - Guinness World Record Confirmed

Congratulations to Dave (davebuchanan.co.uk) who had his Guinness World Record attempt for the most time riding a mountain bike non-stop during The Hobbit's Tale ride confirmed by Guinness at the weekend.

In May 2011, Dave became the first person to ride off road from Cardiff Bay to Caernarfon, and back to Cardiff Bay, non-stop (a route also known as "The Hobbit's Tale"). He completed this epic ride in 59 hours, covering a distance of over 700km and ascending over 22,300m.

Dave raised money for CLIC Sargent (Children's Cancer Charity), who got Dave into the sport. His fund raising page can be reached on the Virgin Money Giving website.

We'll keep you posted on what Dave has in store for 2012. All I know from speaking to Dave is it'll be a good one, so watch this space.
