‘undoubtedly a challenge, but my riding buddies and I came away from it with good memories, new friends and a real sense of achievement. Traipsing across country by bike, camping and getting caked in mud with friends is definitely my idea of fun, and I can’t wait to do it again.’Laura Laker, The Guardian
