Craig happy to have completed the Transcontinental race.
After 12 days , 22hours, 41 minutes Craig came across the finishing line in Cannakale, Turkey on Thursday 11th August in the evening, greeted by his wife Rachel, sister in law Vicky, Brett and Alexander.
He was hot, tired but triumphant, after climbing the equivalent of 10 Everests over the 12 days.
He will have many stories to tell.
Craig has raised in the region of £ 1500 pounds to date for the PASIC charity which helped his cousin's daughter Jessica during her recent illness.
Day 12 of the Transcontinental race finds Craig heading to Greece, he has made excellent progress, cycling 2900km and climbing the equivalent of 13 Everests!
The adventure has taken Craig from Belgium to France, Switzerland, Italy, Croatia, Bosnia. Montenegro, and Kosovo.
True grit and determination have kept him pedalling up and down mountains, through spectacular scenery,and visiting countries most people would only dream of visiting.
To date Craig's efforts have raised over one thousand pounds for the PASIC charity, which helped his cousin's daughter when she was ill with Lymphoma.
There are 637km to the finish in Cannakkale in Turkey, where his family will be waiting with a few beers to celebrate this marvellous achievement.
Last Wednesday evening saw Craig take the Hull Zeebrugge ferry to make his way to the start of the 2016 Trans continental race, one of the toughest cycle rides in the world!
349 cyclists started at 10pm from Geraardsbergen in Belgium, the aim is to ride 2,000 miles unsupported to Canakkale in Turkey.
No support of any kind is allowed, its down to each rider to plan his/her route and carry what they need for this mammoth trip.
Craig is hoping to raise funds for a small charity Pasic, which has given practical support and help to his cousin's daughter, Jessica aged 7, who has been diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoma.
Jessica has made good progress, and hopefully has two more chemo treatments , and will finish her treatment in September.
At the time of writing, Craig has reached the second checkpoint in Switzerland, after a gruelling day climbing in the mountains yesterday.
He is hoping to cover 200 miles a day , depending on the conditions.
