Dan’s Favourite Bike Ride (And The Road That Made Him Cry)

Close ×

Ever wanted to know where road cycling “legend” Daniel Lloyd honed his craft as a youngster? We get to know Dan a little bit better on this beautiful New Forest bike ride as he shows us one of his most frequented training routes. Along the way is both tarmac and gravel, including a spot where he once cried his eyes out as a young lad. We also get to meet a couple of mystery guests and, of course, stop off for a beer…or three!
