With all cycling challenges, there is a desire to push yourself to the limit and see how far you can really go. If something prevents you from completing the challenge, then that sense of unfinished business stays with you for a long time.
On the 21 December 2019, Josh Quigley was on the final leg of his Round the World challenge when he was struck by a car travelling at 70mph outside Austin, Texas. Remarkably Josh survived and has since gone onto becoming a Guinness World Record Holder for cycling the furthest distance in a week.
With our support, Josh is now resuming his challenge and aiming to cycle from Austin, Texas back home to Edinburgh in time for Christmas. Starting from the 1st December, he will spend an emotional few hours with the medical team that played a huge part in his recovery. He will then set off on the 3,934 mile journey.
The US leg will see Josh complete 1,965 miles in 9 days and finish up in New York City. He’ll then transfer to Lisbon, Portugal and head through Europe and back to Edinburgh in time for Christmas. In Europe, Josh is aiming to chalk off 1,969 miles in just 10 days.
Josh will be wearing our protective baselayer, bib shorts and jacket during the challenge - adding an extra level of reassurance, comfort and protection. This will allow him to focus on cranking out the miles and raising money for charity.
To celebrate the challenge, you could WIN the ArmaUrto kit which is powering Josh Quigley.
