The Highland Trail 550 is a fully self-supported individual mountain bike time trial in the Scottish Highlands. Riders depart from Tyndrum and race 550 miles off-road in as fast a time as possible. They can eat and sleep when they like but the clock doesn't stop.
Joining The Dots is Lee Craigie's narrative supported by James Robertson's images spliced with the stories of others riders.
With the foreword by race founder Alan Goldsmith and the main narrative by Adventure Syndicate athlete Lee Craigie, the story is supported by the words of competitiors Ian Fitz, Javi Simon, Liam Glen and Philip Addyman. Lee's sister Kim offers a fascinating insight from a "dot-watcher's" point of view, having watched the five-day race unfold on Trackleaders (a website where riders are represented as coloured dots on a map via live GPS tracking).
These voices, together with the haunting photography of James Robertson, tell the gripping, life-changing, euphoric tale of this unique adventure in the Scottish Highlands.
This crowdfunding appeal aims to cover the print run costs of a beautiful 100-page limited-edition journal telling the story of 2017's Highland Trail 550, and encourages supporters to make a pledge to undertake something they are not quite sure they are capable of in 2017. Just like Lee did.
