Silk Road Mountain Race No1

I was utterly delighted to compete in the SRMRno1 in Kyrgyzstan this summer, and beyond proud to come in as the first female finisher. Head here for the long read!

My race report from the TransatlanticWayRace, "Cruel and Futile Tricks", can be found here on the Adventure Syndicate blog.

The Transcontinental Race is an annual, self-supported, ultra-distance cycling race across Europe. It is one of the world's toughest ultra-endurance races.
