'The One Hit Ride'

Incorporated within the 'May Ride' will be the 'One Hit Ride'...Having completed 2 Canada to Mexico's, 1 USA Coast to Coast and 4 'May Rides', Bobby on a Bike founder, Neil Smith, will attempt to cycle the 'May Ride' route in one go! Neil will be joined on this huge test of endurance, by Rob Bryan and Jeff Cribb. They will assist with support on the first day of the May ride, then return to the start, where, at Sunset on Day 2 they will begin their non-stop ride from Aldeburgh to Borth on the Welsh coast.

Not wanting to take anything away from the riders taking part in the challenge of the May Ride, Neil says, "In the 10th Anniversary year of Bobby on a Bike, I need to challenge myself beyond any way I have before, I know I can ride the May Ride, what I don't know, is if I can do it in one go."
