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 Dave 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.

Ok, so it 22:15 the night before my first big challenge. 100K around a very hilly IOW. I can't say i'm had a good few weeks coming up to this the weather has been just awful! I've just come home from a lovely couple of days at Sandy Balls Camp site with friends and they all waved me off as I left them all behind so I could come and do this ride. As I was driving home from the New Forest to Portsmouth I realised the 32 miles was roughly half the distance I will have to cycle tomorrow! Seams an awfully long way to me .
Best try and get some sleep soon.
I and very grateful for the sponsors and support so far.  Knowing the money i'm raising is going to a good cause will hopefully get me through it.........
