Have you ever thought about attempting a multi-day bike tour? Maybe the Raid Pyrenees (4-5 days) or Land's End-John o'Groats (8-10 days)? Those are both big challenges, but how far would you push it? What about the full Tour de France route including rest days? 3,500km of riding, 55,000m of climbing in 22 days. There is actually an event called Le Loop which does exactly that, including a finish in the centre of Paris (although you don't ride all 8 laps). Today's podcast guest is Dr James Risley, who I've been working with for well over 10 years. In November 2022, James decided to enter the full Le Loop event and take on the biggest challenge of his life. In this 2 part podcast we'll chat about everything from his training and equipment choices to logistical challenges and finally the day to day of the event and what happened afterwards. Hint, it wasn't all champagne and celebrations, and you can hear about this bit in part 2, next week. Today we talk about how to prepare for an event like this, while also managing a new job role and the inevitable impacts on sleep, stress levels and relationships.

  • Managing nutrition while living in a hotel
  • I’m just an average athlete!
  • Can you ever get enough miles in?
  • My FTP is ONLY . . will that be enough?
  • Proper bike fit is essential, and for this event it's for comfort, not aerodynamics
  • Mobility and strength work is critical
The best place too find out more about James and to contact him if you have questions about Le Loop is on LinkedIn. Click on this link to find out more about Le Loop. William Wates Memorial Trust - this is the charity which runs and organises Le Loop. They support projects that encourage young people who experience severe disadvantage to keep away from anti-social behaviour and criminal activity, enabling them to fulfil their potential. James also recommended the following book: Emily Chappell - Where there’s a Will: Hope, Grief and Endurance in a race across a Continent James was on a previous podcast talking about his High Performance Human lifestyle.
