Global shortage of signed Endurance books by @laurapenhaul and yours truly - only 600 are in existence. 

We should have done a chapter on endurance signing - would be much easier if I had a short name like @chrishoy1 😆 🌍 🚴🏻 

Go to the GCN shop to snatch a present… for yourself!

Thanks for all the comments and amazing feedback on the new End to End documentary on GCN+. Lots of you asking ‘where is the tandem?!’ as this is shown in the trailer (see previous Instagram post). Part 2 of this series will be out next week.  If you thought Land’s End to John O’Groats at an average speed of 23mph was tough, wait till you see the tandem 😬. It’s a record that has only been broken once since 1966, and I now know why!  Thanks @jamesl_w for a great fun summer of suffering.  And to @argon18bike and @rideshimano for the race machines.  If you are new to the party, you can find GCN+ by typing ‘racepass’ into your web browser and signing up for @globalcyclingnetwork - enjoy
Superb catching @teamdolly aka Mel Nicholls on her #racearoundbritain as she passed through Edinburgh. 

I rode a similar circumnavigation of the British coastline in 2017 in the build up to the 80 Days project, and can assure you it is a hugely hilly route - and Mel has had similarly tough weather conditions. 

Fantastic endurance from the World Record holder for Land’s End to John O’Groats by handbike - 6 days, 22 hours and 17 minutes. 

If you live down the east and south coast of England watch out for Mel as her journey continues.

The Long Road Home
A chance to de-brief after a crazy adventure at #GBDURO21 with @gravel_union 

Type your questions in the comments below - what would you like to know about the setup or the race itself - or you can ask on the LIVE stream in the chat function.  Some amazing comments on the content over the last 10 days - thanks to all you dot watchers and well wishers.  I loved my maiden race, although it was even tougher than I expected.

A big well done to @reizkultur for all his edits, filming, photography and social media posting.  I was busy racing me bike! 

Great support from @shimanogravel to be able to make this happen and in a way that was separate from my ride.  It was super important to stick to the unsupported ethos by the @theracingcollective 

See you on the live stream - which we will post online afterwards for those who miss it.
