Shand sponsors world record-breaking Jenny Graham cycling premiere at Kendal Mountain Festival

The premiere of ‘Eastbound’, the inspiring movie depicting Scottish endurance cyclist Jenny Graham’s self-supported record round-the-world cycle adventure, will air at the Kendal Mountain Festival in Cumbria this evening (Friday 15 November).

Scottish-based bike company Shand, which specialises in custom-made steel bikes, is sponsoring the production of the film and Premiere to celebrate Jenny’s epic journey on her purpose-built Shand Stooshie.

The Stooshie, which is specially designed for multi-terrain riding across road, gravel and off road, helped Jenny to smash the existing female round-the-world record by 20 days when she finished next to the iconic Brandenburg gate in Berlin in October 2018.

Riding 16 hours and averaging 180 miles a day, ‘Eastbound’ is Jenny’s remarkable tale of endurance and single-mindedness to achieve a lifelong goal relying on her own resources and no-one else.

“There were definitely tough times along the way but even through the pouring rain and freezing cold, I just got on with it as I never expected a round-the-world attempt at breaking the record to be easy,” Jenny said.

“The Shand Stooshie was my trusty companion throughout the journey and its perfect fit with the steel frame provided great comfort and support.
“I hope the film gives other adventurers at the festival the inspiration to do similar feats.”

Jenny is hosting the premiere, which airs at the Brewery Arts Centre Theatre in Kendal from 17:00 to 18:30 followed by a Q&A session.

The record-breaking Stooshie model will be on display while four Shand followers will have the exclusive opportunity to meet Jenny at an intimate event before the screening.

The dedicated film festival, which brings together thousands of outdoor enthusiasts, is taking place from 14-17 November on the edge of the stunning Lake District.

A special offer to celebrate the end of a fantastic Cycle Show!

We are giving you the chance to take 5% off any Rohloff bike from the Shand range until the end of this month (see below for details).

After four busy and exciting days spent in Birmingham at the Cycle Show, our team is now back in the workshop unpacking the bikes we took with us – the Stoater, the Stooshie, the Bahookie and the new Leveret – and resuming our daily duties of sizing, welding, painting and assembling bikes for our customers. We are all still buzzing a little bit from meeting so many fellow cyclists! It was great to chat to them all on our stand and answer questions, technical or not – so thank you to everyone that came to see us and said Hi!

We were especially delighted to have our two brand ambassadors and inspirational endurance cyclists – the Guinness World record holder, Jenny Graham, who caused many jaws to drop when she recounted her 124 days of unsupported riding around the world last year; and adventurer, world traveller and first woman to complete the Silk Road Mountain Race legendary Jenny Tough who spoke candidly about what it takes to win when not all goes your way!

It was also great to meet our two lucky winners of the pairs of tickets we offered in August – John Lindsey from Ayr and Callum James from Preston. Once again congratulations to both – hope you and your guests enjoyed the show!

To celebrate the end of this fantastic event, we are offering everyone who places a new order with us between 13th September and 30th September 2019 the opportunity to save 5% off any of our Rohloff bikes. Simply enter the code ROHLOFF19 in the Promotional code section in the Order form on each page, and our team will apply the discount for you.
