Allan Caple joined Triteq as an Industrial Designer earlier this year and is a wonderful example of what can be done when you decide to travel in a sustainable manner. He has recently taken to completing his 24 mile journey to the office by bike, as part of his training for the Keilder 100 which takes place on 3rd September.
In three years the Montane Kielder 100 has become one of the most iconic British mountain bike races, capturing the imagination of hundreds of riders willing to push themselves to new limits in this unique event.
Each year more and more riders attempt the gruelling 100 mile lap starting from Kielder Castle in England, crossing over the border into Scotland using the Newcastleton 7Stanes trails before heading back to England.
Over 700 riders have already signed up, with many of them just hoping to get through each of the checkpoints within the allotted time and finish the course, but the talented few will be hoping to join the exclusive sub-9 hour club, currently consisting of only 20 riders. With the course record set last year at just under 8 hours it will take something very special to go sub-7 hours and win the £1,000 prize money on offer for the first rider to do so.
Good luck Allan from everyone at Triteq.
