I dedicated a 225km (140-miles) Solo Audax Long-Distance Cycling Challenge (which took place on 19th March 2017) to my brother Garai Makaya, who passed away on 11th February 2017. I rode the new high-intensity-training ElliptiGO Arc 24-gear elliptical bike on what became a day of prayer, meditation and fasting. It was also a day of extreme weather, with ferocious winds. You can watch my video report of the ride on the link below:

I took on the iconic 1,368km (850-mile) crossing of Great Britain (from Land’s End to John O’Groats) on an ElliptiGO Bike. The goal was to set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest crossing of Britain on an elliptical cycle. The film below outlines my End to End ride, from the start of my training until the very end of the mammoth challenge ride itself. A written report of this epic adventure can be read here.

I rode with the ElliptiGO Ultra-Endurance Team in the famous Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP 2015) Audax cycling challenge.

London Edinburgh London, or LEL, is a “randonnee” cycling event held every four years. To complete the event, riders must cover the 1,418 km (886-mile) round trip from London (England) to Edinburgh (Scotland) – and back – within 116 hours and 40 minutes.
1,000 cyclists from 33 different countries attempted this feat in 2013 – alongside 3 ElliptiGO riders: Alan McDonogh, Steve Cook and Idai Makaya. Read the report here, or watch the short video summary below:
