The summer solstice or the longest day of the year. In ancient times it was a sacred day of worship, but this year Neil went on his own pilgrimage along the South Downs Way. In the baking heat of summer would he manage to complete the 100 miles off road before the sun set?

The South Downs Way is a 100 mile trail in the south of England that connects the cities of Winchester and Eastbourne via rolling hills and downland. It features various technical singletrack, steep climbs and descents as well as lots of undulating fire roads. Neil set off at the break of dawn on the summer solstice to challenge himself on his longest ever mountain bike ride. Riding (mostly) unsupported and facing down naked ramblers and the fierce summer sun it was a long day out for Neil.
