ABRAHAM AHEAD OF TOMMY GODWINS 1939 RECORD

Long distance cycling specialist Steve Abraham set off on an epic journey on 1st January 2015 to break a long standing record of 75,000 ridden in a year held since 1939 by the late Tommy Godwin.

Raleigh along with other iconic British cycling brands have chosen to sponsor Steve on his epic adventure just like they did with Tommy over 76 years ago.

Steve’s progress to date is awe inspiring having totalled over 15,500 miles which now puts him over 2500 miles ahead of the record, his daily progress can be tracked on Strava or on his website http://oneyeartimetrial.org.uk/

The bike Steve chose to ride was a Raleigh Sojourn touring bike, as a long standing Audax rider, comfort, lightweight and reliability where high on his list of priorities, but this bike also offers a modern twist with its fitment of disk brakes something which Steve has taken to because of their robust nature and the simple fact is he doesn’t wear out the rims as you would with standard brakes.

You can read the full article about the bike on the Road CC report http://road.cc/content/news/143511-steven-abraham%E2%80%99s-raleigh-sojourn-year-record-bike

Please join us in wishing Steve continued success with the record as we move into lighter nights and warmer weather
