In this first episode of Season 3 I talk with Boru McCullagh who back in December cycled the Rapha festive 500. He did it a bit different though. He cycled it in one go and around a velodrome, 1,112 laps to be exact. To make it even more challenging the velodrome, Herne Hill in London, is an outdoor one.
As it's Easter I thought what better time to release an inspiring story about riding 500kms at Christmas time, haha!
It's such a cool story that created quite a buzz on social media at the time, a proper awesome film was also made about Boru (& Tim's) challenge. You can find Calvin's film over on his YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1QONPoEMhtM-TbojI5usQ).
I talk with Boru about his cycling background, that important question ' why he rides' and how he prepared both physically and mentally for the challenge.
