Josh Quigley – world record breaking endurance cyclist came to see us today in school – It was great to have a visitor…!
Last week Josh set the WORLD RECORD for endurance cycling in 7 days. He cycled 2,179.66 miles (3508Km for the metrics among us) over 7 days by doing a loop between Peterculter, Banchory, Aboyne and Ballater.
Josh broke the previous world record of 2177 miles. Josh tried previously in April to break the world record but injury meant he had to abandon this.
He tried to keep a speed of 18mph for 18 hours a day and did 43 hours on the last days. He did not even stop for toilet breaks. Josh burned over 15,000 calories a day.!
Josh has raised over £12,000 for a charity called Feeding Communities who provide healthy meals for vulnerable people and communities – Home – Feeding Communities
