Great blog from first timer Gilly Dukes here. I managed to share a brief chat with Gilly in the bunkhouse (and thanks for helping me pin on my number!)  and offered her my own advice that (a) she’d be so glad she’d done it and (b) it was so very very hard.

Every 3 Peaks rider has advise for you – about everything. You can read their blogs, watch videos, get a personal training plan, employ a personal trainer. The list of resources is endless. They are the most passionate and helpful people who are without exception, nuts. Go to a race and mentioned you’ve entered and you can forget about getting away anytime soon. Peaks racers will queue up to offer you knowledge.
