Wayland Austin has been riding for over 25 years. He started out racing mountain bikes in cross-country races and moved to endurance mountain bike events in the UK and in Europe. He (once) finished 5th in the National 24 hour and 2nd in the National 12 hour mountain bike races. He now just rides a road bike for fun. In September 2014, he rode the 225 miles from Manchester to London in 12 hours and 28 minutes.
