Hearing that Jenny Graham and Lael Wilcox are on the bill, you might naturally assume this would be a documentary on some gruelling ultra-endurance event. Maybe how many laps of the island could be completed in a set time, or perhaps how far across could be ridden without sleep.

After all, Graham does hold the women’s record for cycling around the world unsupported, averaging 145 miles / 230km every day for 124 days. Not one to rest on her laurels, this summer she'll compete in the eighth edition of the Transcontinental Race – which will be the first time it’s been held since Fiona Kolbinger won in 2019.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
