Iain Noy, Daventry store manager and partner of Leisure Lakes Bikes, has just completed a 3 day ride from Blakesley to Aberffraw! He and four friends decided a 250 mile ride from their home village in Daventry to our family home in Anglesey would be fun so they got to work bashing out 150 miles a week to prepare themselves for the ride.

With nothing more than their bikes, a few essential spares, clothing and a credit card they set out on what was sure to be a few tough days in the saddle…


Day 1 – Blakesley To Ludlow

“Day 1 of ride to Anglesey, 138km and 6 hours in saddle! Now playing pool Jez and Chris Higgins keeping their pumpkins warm then to the pub, Rob Gray wins the plimsole comp!”



Day 2 – Ludlow To Mach

“Day 2 done! Much more climbing nearly 7 hours and 77 miles in the saddle with some of the steepest roads ever ridden and getting a speed wobble at 50mph bit scary! Anglesey tomorrow, bring it on…”




Day 3 – Mach To Aberffraw

“The first 30 miles we endured rain and 20% gradients but we made it! Another 84 miles in the saddle and now it’s time for a beer before we ride to get the train home!”





Bikes & Kit

The guys were riding Cannondale CAAD12 Dura Ace,  Cannondale Synapse carbon, Cervelo P5 and Cannondale Synapse Black Inc. If you have any questions then leave us a comment below and they will get back to you!
