What's it all about?

At the end of September 2012 I completed a cycle from Portsmouth 2 Penzance a total of 273 miles! raising money for Children In Need is the Plan. This was also be a personal challenge for me as I haven't been cycling in over 25 years and that was only for fun nothing serious. On top of that have a prolapsed disc, was 46 years old and at the start of 2012 a bit over weight, well lot over weight really, since then I've lost nearly 3 stone! So I opted to do the big one, John O'Groats 2 Lands End on May 6th 2013. The End 2 End or P2P (point to point, as it's sometimes called ) around 1000 miles! This time I had company, Colin, a friend from work, who has said he is as mad as I am and would like to come! This blog contains that story....This event is in memory of the sad passing of my mum on 17th of April this year having lost her fight with terminal Bowel Cancer.

I guess you'd call it the sequel, I have decided it would be just rude not to go back the other way!!! so May 2015, with a new friend, Pete and with Alan driving a support vehicle ( luxury) we plan the classic Lands End to John O'Groats, also known as LEJOG
. Mad ? yes I think we must be.

Thank you SealSkinz

If you've been following my blog, facebook and twitter you will know that I have been able to get a little help here and there from a few companies you have been as generous as they can be. I have to say though i've been blown away with SealSkinz kind offer. They have been extremely generous and will supply wind proof beanie hat, top quality gloves and their well renowned waterproof socks and thats for each of us. As you know Colin and I are having to fund everything ourselves so help like this is a really big deal. I will be giving a full report on how they go during the ride, so watch this space.
