The Hobbit's Tale

On Friday May the 13th 2011 at 10am, Dave Buchanan, Syncros and Santa Cruz sponsored rider and racer on Loco Suspension Tuning’s BM Racing Team, will take on the biggest ride of his life.
In 2009, Dave was the first person to ride solo and unsupported through the length of Wales, non-stop. But now, he will be the first to ride from Cardiff to Caernarfon, over some of the toughest countryside and trail centre terrain in the UK, and once he’s done that he will turn around and ride home to Cardiff, on the 2009 route.
It’s hoped that this ride will be completed in 48-52 hours of non-stop riding.
“The Hobbit’s Tale” has been validated by The Guinness World Records(tm) as “The Greatest Distance Achieved on a Mountain Bike in 48 hours.” But more than this, it’s a ride being done for charity.
Due to his own medical history, Clic Sargent is the charity of choice for Dave and the race that got him into the world of 24 Solo riding, Clic24 is the focal point for any funds that the effort raises.
All information relating to the ride and how to contribute to the funds raised are available on . You can even follow the links to the Facebook and Twitter pages to register comments about the ride as you follow his progress on the satellite tracker page.
