To prepare for the race Josh went on a pre Divide Shakedown ride around the South of England. Josh used his Mason InSearchOf bike with full Tour Divide kit list for the ride. The ride started in Hatfield, North of London and headed West across the country on the Ridgeway before heading South across Sailsbury Plain to Winchester. He then picked up the South Downs Way before heading north to Guilford on the Downslink. The loop was completed with a ride across London back to Hatfield.
