How one CW5000 rider took on an even bigger ride challenge

Through July Corrine Black took on a big challenge. Ride 100 miles a day every day. Here's how she got on.

Think 5,000 miles in one year is too easy? How about 3,100 miles in one month? That was the target Corinne ‘The Mountain Goat’ Black set herself as she rode 100 miles every day through July to raise money for the MS Society.

Corrine is no stranger to clocking up the miles. Last year she rode the distance of the Tour de France over 21 consecutive days, the year before that she rode every day for three months - through winter - clocking up 1,000 miles a month, and in 2017 she managed to gain one million feet of elevation throughout her year of riding. The achievement that cemented her nickname.
