This week we're back with James Risley as we continue the conversation about riding Le Loop - 3,500km of riding with 55,000m (yes, FIFTY FIVE HUNDRED METRES) of climbing, including some of the toughest climbs in France and Spain. Last week we talked about the preparation for the event and navigating life challenges - work, relationships, sleep - in order to get enough miles on the clock. In today’s episode we talk about the event itself and James outlines a few issues he never even considered prior to Le Loop - like what happens when 100 riders are in a line waiting to get coffee at 6am and there is only ONE slow coffee machine. In this episode you’ll get a real idea of how, even when things are way less than perfect, the human body can still get things done, as long as you let the mind do its thing.
  • Feet, hands, and butt might be more important than fitness on a multi day ride
  • Processed carbs and a lack of protein
  • It's like riding in the 90’s - no Garmin, just arrows to follow
  • Why it’s important to choose roommates carefully
  • Beware the post-event depression
  • What next?

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.
