    Similar to Robbie Bryson's 15 Irish 3000s in 24 hours and bike between. Match that.

    Looks like he's completed the PBR in about 23:40.
    And has set off for the Lakes after 4 hours rest.
    Impressive stuff!

    My wife Anne supported Mike Hartley on the PBR on his 3 rounds (Mike went from north to south) and said he was dead on his feet - completely not with it, falling asleep as he walked..
    This guy's cycle up to Scotland after doing 2 rounds is bonkers! Respect though!!

    Noticed heís managed a massive stretch around Preston without GPS tracking. Whatís gone on here? He was a fair bit down on his schedule, so has he had a lift to try and get back closer to it to start the BGR during tonight?

    Looks like he switched to a new tracker, it says the current tracker has only been running since 19:26 today

    He completed the BGR in just under 24 hours, had a sleep for a few hours, started the cycle up towards Glen Nevis, but quite quickly called it a day as he felt unsafe on the bike ( falling asleep ).

    So, 2 sub-24 hour rounds and a 170-odd mile cycle all in terrible weather - not a bad wee outing :-)
