A thousand mile sponsored cycle ride for Marie Curie Hospice, starting at John o' Groats in Scotland and heading via the Outer and Inner Hebrides, Ireland, Wales and south-west England, finishing at Lands End, with our legs, muscles and bikes still intact - hopefully!
We began the 1050 mile marathon at John o' Groats on Thursday 26 August 2010, aiming to complete the journey in less than four weeks. Indeed, we finished at Lands End on Friday 17th September - despite some extremely wet weather, mechanical problems and physical issues along the way.
We are still raising money for Marie Curie Hospices: please give generously at www.justgiving.com/jogle-thelongway Or, you can buy one of the limited edition pin badges, suggested minimum donation £2. Contact Mark 0n 0044 7834 539685 or at email@example.com to buy a badge. As is always the case in our events, all of the money sponsored goes to the charity concerned. We treat the 'ordeal' as a holiday(!) which we pay for out of our own pockets.

Day 7 update
Dear all - we're now on a ferry from Oban to Islay. We've just seen a grey seal and three dolphins!
We had planned to get off at Colonsay, but if we do will be stranded for a week!
Instead will be cycling 10 miles on Jura tonight to the hotel we've just booked.
