THE JOURNEY  Sept 2012 – Welsh Etape

From the running the Nike British London 10k in full Everest Kit, to the Welsh Hills!

Etape Cymru is an ‘epic’ lungbusting, leg aching ending season closed road sportive which challenges all level of riders. The route starts and finishes in Wrexham and passes through the Clwydian Range (an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) with stunning scenery. The altered route still takes in several well known climbs including the legendary Horseshoe Pass. It promises to be quite the challenge!

Strength in numbers! and it would be great if you could join me.

So whats the deal?

Well first and foremost, it’s all about us coming together to hopefully spread the word about the Everest Million campaign. I’m also working flat out to make this a day for everyone to remember. Here’s what i’m planning: (idea’s welcome!)

Bespoke Everest Million Gore cycling jerseys.

Normally £45 for £20 and very excitingly Gore are going to give every Everest Million rider a discount code so you can buy more great Gore kit at a great discount. Time to stock up for your winter rides!
