Carbon Fivers shirts given first workout at Perth training ride

After the 75 mile ride, Carbon director Mark Christie commented, “today we climbed 4200 feet of undulating terrain in fair weather. Rides like this highlight how tough a challenge it is going to be riding an average of 100 very hilly exposed miles on five consecutive days. It is going to be an extremely tough week but all for an extremely good cause.”

The Carbon Fivers team from Carbon Financial Partners will cycle 500 gruelling miles in five days to raise £50,000 for Winning Scotland Foundation.

Guinness world record holder Mark Beaumont, world champion triathlete Catriona Morrison MBE, mountain biker Ruaridh Cunningham and cyclists Charline Joiner and Fiona Duncan are supporting the fundraising effort for the Charity.

The Charity’s role models will provide advice, support and encouragement to the Carbon Fivers team cycling the Highland 500. It’s a mountainous route around the North of Scotland that will require a total climb of 33,500 feet from the riders, more than the height of Everest.

“The route is very demanding physically, however with the support from the charity’s champions, we will be prepared to the best level we can be.”
