Rupert & Caven ride Trans Alba


Rupert and Caven took on the Trans Alba, a 1000 mile self-supported bicycle race through Scotland. With this being their first time out racing in a bikepacking event, the pair share all their experiences from waking up at 3am, spending 18 hours on the road and pushing out 200 mile days.

The Trans Alba Race is a self supported cycling ride around Scotland. Covering over 1,000 miles and more than 50,000 feet of climbing. Riders follow a predetermined route whilst abiding to a simple set of seven rules. 

Sounds easy right? Well, self supported means self supported, riders are responsible for all their navigation and logistics whilst remaining completely self reliant throughout the event. Simply - You're on your own!
