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.

Come on you lot...

Right you lot.....that sounds a bit harsh doesn't it, sorry about that but with less than 2 months till the big ride I need to try and get you to sponsor us please. How about a bit of fun into the bargain. I currently weigh 14 stone 8 lb in lycra, and cycle shoes (sorry if that's just put you off your dinner) How about, for a minimum donation of £5. Online (below link), you guess my finishing weight in stone and lb's? You can put your guess in the comments part of the sponsorship and the winner gets , let's say £10. from me. Obviously if you wish to sponsor more that would be fabulous. Come on have a go.


In the event of a tie, first one who guessed that weight wins. Colin, you up for this? Let me know your lucra weight...God that sounds so wrong.
