At 10am this morning Dean Stott set off on a journey of a lifetime. His aim, to break the world record for cycling the Pan American Highway. A record currently standing at 117 days. Dean aims to complete the challenge in an incredible 110 days which he says will physically and mentally exhausting.
With the backing of Prince Harry, Dean intends to not only smash the current record, but to also raise one million pounds for Heads Together foundation.
To help Dean succeed on his journey Glencraft have donated a custom made Merida Mattress for Dean to sleep on for preparation and during his challenge. The importance of sleep in relation to performance is often overlooked and is in fact a significant factor.
The Merida Mattress can be found as part of our luxury range. This horsehair layered luxury mattress is handcrafted with a pocket spring design. The 50mm, extra deep, layer of supportive horsehair controls temperature and moves moisture away from the body. The luxury quilted soft top creates a cushion of comprehensive comfort with intricate detailing. It's been described as the most comfortable mattress you will ever own.
We are extremely excited to be working with Dean and his team. We have no doubt Dean’s determination and skill will take him over the line and we look forward to being part of the adventure.
We wish Dean the best of luck and look forward to following him on his incredible journey.
