Mark Slavonia - a tale of a long journey from the U.S. to Helwith Bridge

Mark Slavonia, one of the growing number of riders to come over from the US to do the Three Peaks in 2003, put together a really comprehensive story on his blog. Thanks for the photo too, Mark. Come back soon and bring your friends. We'll provide a translator for Roger Ingham.

At this point my calves were lodging serious protests and I thought that if all three climbs were like this I might not be able to finish. I considered getting out my camera to capture the moment, but I was afraid that if I did so I'd topple over backward."
