White Horse Challenge

April 27, 2007

Keep an eye out for number 110 if you are out in the hills around Swindon on Sunday.

The 150km White Horse Challenge will be making its way from Shrivenham through the hills of Wiltshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire passing four famous white horses: Uffington, Broadtown, Cherhill and Hackpen.

Uffington White Horse is thought to be the oldest of all British chalk figures and dates back almost 3,000 years, to the late Bronze Age.

The event is raising money for the WaterAid charity and I’ve setup a sponsorship page here if you are in a particularly supportive, encouraging or donating mood.

    After a gruelling ride I was very pleased to place Silver with an overall time of 5:44:40. Cyclosport UK editor Mark Harding has written up his experience of the event here: http://www.cyclosport.org/article.aspx?id=313 (behind a registration wall)
