The Scottish cyclist Josh Quigley, who set the fastest time for cycling the Scottish ‘North Coast 500’ route in September 2020, will attempt a Guinness World Record for the greatest distance cycled in a week, and raise £10,000 for Arthritis Action.
The challenge commences on 26th April and concludes on 3rd May. Josh’s attempt comes after he was diagnosed with arthritis earlier this year at 28 years old. Josh hopes the attempt will provide hope and inspiration to the 10 million people in the UK that are impacted by the condition.
To break the current Guinness World Record of riding 2,177 miles in a week, Josh aims to cycle a daily average of 320 miles. This will be achieved each day by cycling four laps of an 80-mile route between Aberdeen and the Cairngorms in Scotland.
