Adventure Show Series 7 Programme 8 – Strathpuffer 24: 2012
In the middle of winter, with 17 hours of darkness, 500 competitors head north of Inverness for one of the world’s toughest mountain bike races, the Strathpuffer 24 hour marathon. And once again, this year conditions are testing – as we follow the hardiest of competitors – the solo riders.
Also in this month’s Adventure Show, we’ll be discovering the easy way to carry all your kit on a long distance bike ride. Cameron McNeish and Deziree Wilson will be heading into the hills to check out the latest gear that’s available. And we’ll be joining a remarkable woman, Julie McElroy who was born with cerebral palsy, but that hasn’t deterred her from following a life of adventure
