Lands End - JohnO Groats & 3 Peaks Challenge

What an amazing start to the summer season in the U.K.Last weekend saw us completing our first 3 peaks of 2012 in a great time of 23.37hrs, the 3 peaks team had great weather, it was even clear on all 3 peaks, a great start to the 3 peaks challenge season, lets hope we can continue finishing in such great times.

We also crossed into Scotland with our Lands End - John O Groats bike ride, all 13 riders are raising money for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust and have managed to raise over £30,000 so far, there's a great team spirit within the group and the weather here in Scotland is perfect with average temp of 22c.

As of tomorrow we only have 3 days remaining on the ride but the last week of Lands End - John O Groats must be my favourite part of the challenge, one thing that does come to mind travelling from one end of the the other is that we live on an incredibly stunning Island.

Lands End - John O Groats

We finally got our Lands End - John O Groats under way on Monday, The weather on day one was pretty poor with heavy showers and strong wind, cycling through Cornwal and Devon is tough cycling with plenty of short steep hill climbs, day two continued to give us poor weather but our group of 13 riders all raising money for The Bob Champion Cancer Trust, kept there spirits up and continued riding through what ever the great British weather threw at them. We have now cycled over 3oo miles and currently enjoying the dry weather and the flatter terrain of the North West.

Welsh 15 Peaks & Toubkal

Congratulations to both teams who last weekend completed some of our toughest challenges, We had a group of 10 who celebrated a stag weekend by climbing Mt Toubkal, which was our first Toubkal ascent of the summer, the trek went like clock work with the only real challenging section for the group was negotiating some of the passes which still had some snow remaining and of cause the lack of air when summiting Mt Toubkal.
It was great to get the Adventurous Ewe Toubkal Team back together for what now is the beginning of our summer season.

The same weekend we also had some clients return to book with Adventurous Ewe after completing the 3 Peaks last year and looking to complete the Welsh 15 Peaks 24hr Challenge in 2012. It's was and is a very tough challenge, taking most groups by surprise and just how tough a challenge it really is, Jason and the team led by Edwin who is our Welsh 15 Peaks Challenge Leader, Edwin has completed this gulling challenge in under 6.5hrs.

The team set off at 04.00am making there way to the summit if Snowdon to beging the challenge, the Snowdon massif went well then began the big climb up Elidir Fawr and onto the Glyders before finally finishing the challenge on the Caerneddau in 21hrs.

It was a great a start to the summer and we are now looking for a summer of fantastic challenges ahead.
