Cape Epic 2008




Here we go again on the Cape Epic. Jimmy and I are in and registered and looking to do a bit better than just finish this time. The course sounds like it's going to be fantastic and we'll be fuelled to the gills with Mule Bar and a full team strip. 2006 was our first full on long distance race and we've done the Trans Scotland since then. We'll keep you updated on training progress and also rasing money for this year's charity.
Cheers.

About Mulebar

The Environment

We set the company up as a 1% For The Planet Company, dedicated to donating 1% of sales every year to environmental groups protecting our natural world. Two of our four Mulebars are Fairtrade accredited but watch this space as we are working hard with fruit and other ingredient producers around the world to make all our bars Fairtrade.

The Beginnings

We made the first Mulebars in our own kitchens, mainly at night or in the afternoons skiving off the day job just before a ride. The first bars were pretty tasty or at least all our friends and family said so and that gave us the encouragement to develop them further testing them in extreme endurance races as well as just as daily snacks.

And now...Over the past 3 years, since coming back from the Andes, prototype after prototype has been made, tried by friends, raced with in South Africa’s Cape Epic 9 day stage race, climbed with in the Alps, wheeled along with in the Etape du Tour and used in many children’s lunch boxes. And, we've just come back from the Trans Scotland mtb race where the bars were about the only thing which kept us going.

A great pinnacle for Mulebar is that Amy Beaton, one of our exceptional Mules, took Mulebar to Everest this May.
