Lee Craigie talks Adventure Racing

Lee Craigie, former GB mountain bike champ and Commonwealth athlete talksAdventure Racing at Velocity

The Highland Trail 550 - 550 miles, 4 days, 5 hours and 50 minutes

Lee Craigie became the British Mountain Bike Champion in 2013 and represented Scotland at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, but the secret to her sporting success lies in her love of exploring big mountains by bike. Fascinated by the places we can take ourselves emotionally by pushing our perceived limits, Lee's tales of adventure explore more than just the terrain she passes through. Join her for an insight into the euphoria and the darkness that can be found on an individual off-road 550 mile mountain bike time-trail in the Scottish Highlands.

This event will include a "Show-andTell" of bike packing kit and a Q&A session on Bike-packing and Adventure Racing.

Tickets - Pledge your Miles

Tickets must be booked thought Eventbrite. The talk is part of Velocity's GoByCycle Project which encourages people to cycle, walk and lift share in place of driving. On the door we will be collecting pledges of the number of miles you will cycle, walk or lift share over the following month in place of driving- this is in place of financial payment (the talk costs no money). We will ask you to log these miles weekly using a simple web-page.
