Pete Astles - 3 Peaks Challenge

Pete Astles

Pete Astles (the man behind Peak UK) has recently completed his own take on the 3 Peaks challenge. Inspired by the annual sailing/fell race Pete set himself the challenge of using a Sea Kayak and a Mountain Bike the 900kms between Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.

Completing the trip in just under 3 weeks (20 days) Pete has logged some impressive statistics. 3400m climbed, 450km with 5000m accent by bike, 450km by kayak, 120000 calories burnt, 250000 strokes paddled and 120000 pedal revolutions!

Pete kept a blog running during the trip and now it is completed has an interesting gear list and other information on the route up on the Peak Uk website.

Importantly, he also has a Just Giving page set up should folk wish to sponsor him and help raise money for the RNLI.
