Rapha - The Dot by Lachlan Morton
The Dot - Lachlan Morton
Inside Lachlan Morton’s alternative Tour.
In July 2021, while his colleagues in the peloton were competing at the Tour de France, EF Education-EasyPost’s Lachlan Morton undertook a challenge of an entirely different kind: the Alt Tour. Riding not for points and prizes but to raise money for World Bicycle Relief, the amicable Aussie covered over 5,000 kilometres, completed every Tour stage and transfer and still beat the peloton back to Paris. Made up of journal entries written on the road by Lachlan, The Dot plots the highs and lows of his incredible journey. From knee pain in the early days of his challenge that led to him replacing his cycling shoes with sandals to an emotional reunion with his father, Lachlan’s intimate account provides a rare insight into the mind of an ultra endurance cyclist – a must for anyone who followed his dot last summer.
