"Just completed the Crossing, tough riding but joyous scenery and great company along the way.

The crew were great, pit stops were wonderful, they went out of their way even for us awkward gluten free riders. We were looked after from the minute we arrived until we crossed the finish line at Scarborough. Full mechanical support throughout from an experience mechanic, who looked after broken spokes and busted hubs. The bikes and bodies took a bashing on this one.

Highly recommend Rat Race, if your looking for an adventure. I loved it that much I've signed up to do Patagonia and the Hebrides."

"My most recent experience, in South America was without doubt the defining experience of my life so far. The route, the views and the group energy were all fantastic. A true feeling of support from everyone on the trip. It really felt like we were doing something special. Looking back now, I think the most remarkable thing is how I was able to focus on nothing but cycling and enjoying the trip. At no point did I have to worry about safety, security or logistics. Everything just kind of happened.."

Christopher, 2023 finisher Trans Andean Coast to Coast

"I did the source to city event in September 2022 and it was fantastic. Every day there were briefings so that we all felt fully supported. On the evenings the meals were great and the atmosphere between those taking part and the crew was brilliant. All the equipment that I had booked, eg, the kayak and bike were there as agreed. Brilliant and tough challenge and I would highly recommend it."

Adan, 2022 finisher Source to City
