Steven Prime

THE STORY:

First he cycled from John O’Groats to Land’s End. Then it was 3,000 miles coast to coast across the USA, once again on two wheels. “There’s definitely more to come,” Steve Prime, Owner of the Esquires Coffee in Coventry, warned Echo readers after completing his epic 32-day slog from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans.

 

Three years on, true to his word, he’s back in the saddle. This August, Steve will return to North America to take on yet another gruelling bike ride. This time he’s heading down the west coast from Seattle, Washington to Los Angeles, California. And like before the aim is to raise as much money as possible for Coffee Kids, the non-profit organisation which strives to improve the quality of life for children and families living in coffee growing communities.

 

Steve plans on taking 19 days to cover approximately 1400 miles with the final destination being Santa Monica Pier, the same place his coast to coast journey of 2011 came to an end. Keeping Steve company on their own bikes will be his friends Dayle Walker and Nathan Ellis.

“It’s not as long as the last ride and we’re going to rest for a couple of days along the way in San Francisco, but it’s still going to be tough,” says Steve.

“So far the training has gone well and I’ve been doing quite a lot of gym work to improve my overall stamina.

“Going from coast to coast involved pedalling between 120 and 130 miles each day which was extremely tiring. This time it’ll be more like 80 to 90 miles per day which should be more manageable. I can’t wait to get started!”
