Rob Lee & the X1 End2End31st AUG 2010

Syncros Endurance Team Manager Rob Lee has announced the date for his attempt at the X1 UK End2End offroad. The route, which travels the length of the country connecting the traditional UK end to end locations of Lands End and John o'Groats, covers some 1200 miles and follows the most obvious 'spine' of high ground running up through the country.

The X1 route is available for anyone to follow (from the CTC) and is the most commonly used End2End offroad route for Lands End to John o'Groats. The route can also be viewed HERE Most people tackle the challenge over the course of 23 days although some have covered it in as little as 17 days. Rob will be trying to complete the route within the window of 10 to 14 days although acknowledges that this may be pushing the limits of his riding ability to it's extreme. To put the attempt into context it is the equivalent of attempting to ride the Montane Kielder 100 repeatedly for ten straight days!

This ride will be the 7th, and final, ride in his Seven Deadly Spins project (7ds) that aims to promote ultra-endurance mountain biking in the UK. Other rides in the series include the West Highland Way Double, the Welsh Coast to Coast and riding all of the 7Stanes Red Routes in one hit.

The attempt will start on Wednesday September 1st 2010, to coincide with the release date of cycling film 'Find' which features the second ride in his Seven Deadly Spins series, and Rob hopes to complete his ride some time before the 14th of the same month. Find is the second film from Reset Films that focuses on UK riders and their exploits (the first being Home) and will be available from September 1st directly from www.resetfilms.co.uk It features riding by riders from all different backgrounds and disciplines and includes: Rob Lee, Rowan Sorrell, Clive Forth, Steve Peat, Hans Rey and Danny Macaskill.

The attempt will be covered by live tracker, regular Twitter updates and a daily blog which can be viewed here. As part of the challenge Rob hopes that he can use this opportunity to raise 1200 for children's charities.
