Lands End To John O Groats by Bike
Can’t believe I have been talked into this again, dreading it.
We are cycling from lands End to John O Groats, starting on Friday May 28th hopefully finishing on Friday June 10th at John O Groats. It is 1000 miles, 1600 k, with 30,000 feet of climbing up hill.
The same as cycling up Everest.
We are carrying all our own bags and staying at youth hostels. Lovely.
I am cycling with young Jack, who goes up hills like a mountain goat and Wes, who was a top Iron man before he discovered pies.
Both will be far ahead of me
All our expenses are paid by us, so every penny we raise goes to the Cancer Hospice at Countess Mountbatten, West End. I have had a friend and a relative taken care of here in their last days and it really is a special place.
It would be great to see a message of support, or abuse along with a couple of pounds. We will read the messages each night as we post pictures/blogs of mishaps etc
You can help me raise money for this great cause by donating directly to my fundraising page –
JustGiving sends your donation straight to Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
Thank you for your support!David Perry
