Just had news from Dave Buchanan that he has beaten the world record for longest distance travelled on a mountain bike in one go.

Dave emailed to say has just completed a 721Km ride, offroad in 58 hours with 22,300m of climbing, in Wales. That’s equivalent to climbing more than 2.5 Mount Everests.

The ride has been done in order to raise money for CLIC Sergent, a childrens cancer charity – you can donate to his cause on hisVirgin Money Giving page.

1 thing we have taken from this news is the realisation of just how pathetic our own biking adventures are!

More details to follow, and we’ll be featuring Dave’s ride in the Grapevine when he’s recovered!

(update – hearing a rumour Dave lost 2 stone during the challenge!)
