Mark Ambridge completes Grizedale Mountain Bike Challenge in Aid of Marie Curie Trust

Wednesday, 23 September 2009

Now in its 4th year and with over 600 entries from all over the country it was always going to be a tough event. The course consisted of two 16.5 mile laps of Grizedale forest, some 'fire road' and some single track, as this was my first event I didn't quite know what to expect.

What I got was a wonderfull warm sunny day, near exhaustion, a sore bum and cramp like I've never experienced !
The first lap went well, completed in two hours, but, at about halfway around the second lap I think due to very steep uphill sections where all riders had to walk and push, severe leg cramp started to set in meaning constant stopping, resting, massaging painfull quads, hamstrings and calves. This added over an hour extra to the first lap time and I eventually finished the whole race in 5hrs 17mins !

A target to beat next year.
