215 miles, 7,880m of climbing in 30 hours – the Welsh coast-to-coast off-road – video
Joe and Tom find out just hard 30 hours in the saddle can be...
Joe and Tom's Welsh coast-to-coast challenge, featured in MBUK 350, is an epic 215-mile ride that has 7,880m of climbing, visits seven different trail centres and normally takes five days to complete. Our boys thought that wasn't hard enough, so decided to tackle the ride in one go, unsupported and with no sleep. What could possibly go wrong?

Alex Evans is BikeRadar’s senior mountain bike technical editor. He started racing downhill at the tender age of 11 before going on to compete across Europe. Alex moved to Morzine in the French Alps at 19 to pursue a career as a bike bum and clocked up an enormous amount of riding. Hitting those famous tracks day in, day out for eight years, he broke more bikes than he can remember. Alex then moved back to the UK and put his vast knowledge of mountain biking to good use by landing a job working for MBUK magazine as features editor. Since working for MBUK, Alex’s focus has moved to bike tech. He’s one of BikeRadar’s lead testers and knows how to push bikes and products to the limit, searching out the equipment that represents the best value for money. Alex is also a dedicated eMTB rider, and still dabbles in racing of a sort, doing his best to top the Strava leaderboard on the steepest, gnarliest and twistiest trails the Tweed Valley has to offer – just for fun, of course. Alex is also a regular on the BikeRadar YouTube channel and BikeRadar podcast.
