Well, I endured and completed the truly epic Raid 100 Pyrenees challenge in under 100 hours! This was easily the hardest physical and mental challenge I have undertaken. The word epic is so overused, but this ride is the definition of epic!

Day 1
A team of seven hardy souls started at exactly 9:00 am by the Atlantic Ocean in Hendaye. Day one was a gentler introduction to cycling across the Pyrenees mountains. We rode 96.61 miles and climbed 7,277 ft elevation in very sunny conditions all day. Some of the Cols we climbed on this day were…..
• Col D’ Osquich – Average grade: 2.9 %, Length: 12 km, Altitude start: 160 m, Altitude top: 507 m, Ascent: 347 m
• Col De Pinodieta – Average grade: 1.9 %, Length: 5.6 km, Altitude start: 70 m, Altitude top: 176 m, Ascent: 106 m
• Col de Saint-Ignace – Average grade: 4.6 %, Length: 3.32 km, Altitude start: 23 m, Altitude top: 177 m, Ascent: 154, Maximum: 13 %

Day 2
Starting early at 8:00 am the team were apprehensive about day two, as it contains some iconic and massive mountains. Plus, the weather forecast was for the sun to blaze all day with temperatures forecasts reaching up to 30 degrees. A long day in the saddle, totalling over 105.57 miles and 15,455 ft of climbing elevation. Some of the Cols climbed this day were……

Day 4
The penultimate day, with the team back in good spirits as we had conquered most of this epic challenge. Today was a brutal day of climbing with five mountains to climb. And today we experienced the full extent of mountain weather. From thunderstorms, lightning, cloud, mist and temperatures that changed from 27 degrees to 14 degrees. Long descents followed even longer climbs. We rode 84.41 miles and climbed over 11,705ft of elevation.
• Col de Marmare – Average grade: 4.5 %, Length: 16.7 km, Altitude start: 605 m, Altitude top: 1361 m, Ascent: 756 m
• Port de Pailhères – Average grade: 8.1 %, Length: 14.9 km, Altitude start: 794 m, Altitude top: 2001 m, Ascent: 1207 m
• Col du Jau – Average grade: 6.7 %, Length: 13.4 km, Altitude start: 610 m, Altitude top: 1506 m, Ascent: 896 m

Day 5
Lots of smiles on faces today as the team left early to ride to the coast. We had to arrive before 1 pm to complete our epic challenge in under 100 hours. The pace was high at the start, a couple of punctures and a broken stem slowed our progress, but we pushed hard and arrived in Cerbere with half an hour to spare. No mountains climbed today but a few sharp inclines as we spied the Mediterranean Sea with about 15 miles to the finish. Riding along the coast road it was with a mixture of happiness, relief and sadness that our adventure had come to an end. We rode 55.64 miles and still rose 2,574 ft on the final day.

The team of seven all achieved our goals and the memories will live with us forever. The fundraising and support from so many people was very humbling. So far, we have raised over £2,000 for charity. The charity we are supporting and raising money for is About Face, a local small cancer charity.

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who has kindly supported, encouraged and sponsored us to complete the Raid 100 Pyrenees challenge.

Spaceway worked with us to create the perfect environment for our staff. The completed project was fantastic and utilised the space to provide  practical, modern and attractive working surroundings.

It’s no good having just an empty industrial building you need a concept for space, a design, an infrastructure and someone to build it. Designing something like this from scratch with someone who’s willing to invest in your ideas, Spaceway is your perfect partner.


The project was designed to meet our specific requirements which included fitting in 20 more additional workstations using the existing space. The design works well and has met our expectations fully, we will continue to use Spaceway, they do a good job.

Our project was finished on time and to budget in what was a very short timescale, which is a credit to the team at Spaceway!

Another project well done by Spaceway. As before, we're very pleased with everything from concept through to completion.

Alan Fisher

“I was so happy I did not get bothered throughout the extensive works and that a strict timetable was completed flawlessly. Fantastic experience all round.”


The project was challenging to say the least with the removal of 280 workstations and fitting of 400 new ones, along with collaboration areas and 400 bespoke lockers over two weekends, but Spaceway managed to complete this along with office refurbishment works on time and to an excellent standard.

Stone Bridge United

We're very impressed with the Spaceway team and the whole project was installed without fault. We are looking forward to working with the team again.
