Training ahead of the monumental Paris–Brest–Paris 2019

It is getting closer and closer until Paul Haxell embarks on his challenge that is the Paris-Brest-Paris 2019 and his preparation through intense training is well underway.

The Paris-Brest-Paris is a 1200k bike ride which is to be completed in 90 hours. Paul is completing the challenge between 18th - 22nd of August.

A snapshot of Paul's training regime - "this week it was carb loading before a 9pm bike ride with the plan to ride 300k through the night..." which took around 13 hours in its entirety! Which is enough of a challenge in itself for most of us.

Paul is taking on this challenge to raise money for Mind through S4G. Mind is a charity dedicated to mental health - providing support, information and services to those who need it.

Please support Paul through his VirginMoneyGiving page (link below) - every donation makes a difference.
