More about Russell Jones

Russell made the huge life change from renowned shinty player to ultra-long-distance unsupported cyclist in 2016, when he decided to cycle from Lands End to John O' Groats. After that, there was no stopping him and he discovered the world of unsupported bikepacking racing.

In 2017 he took part in the Trans Am bike race, a 4,267-mile race coast to coast taking in ten states of America, and then in 2018 he completed the first edition of the 4,500 mile North Cape - Tarifa race which goes from the northern most point in Europe in Norway to the southern most point in Spain passing through 14 countries.

His humour, attitude and tales of adventure will inspire you to give life your best shot and never stop moving!
