Well it has been a long while since I have been here on the network, so what have I been up to. Well I have decided to give up my job to ride full time for charities. I have set up a new organization which rides some pretty extreme mountain bike rides.
I ride solo and unsupported on most of the rides to make them as tough as possible. We are currently planning a raid across the Pyrenees just under 1000km of offroad riding. I will be carrying all I need to survive for 8 days and by the end of the trip I would have cycled up Everest 3 times.
We are currently trying to raise around 7000 euros to get the equipment needed for the rides themselves, which we are using our facebook networks and contacts for.
We are in partnership with two major charity organizations and looking to gain sponsorship through various companies dealing with extreme sports. Each of the rides we attempt will be filmed, then made into ten part documentaries and loaded onto our You Tube channel. People will also be able to follow the rides via google earth as we are using a helmet mounted camera with gps tracking in it.
So exciting times ahead if any members here would like to read more about us at Epic Raid then check out our website or visit our facebook and "like" to help support us.
So maybe you lovely folks at SFN could get behind this project and show some support.
Thanks in advance
Team Epic Raid
