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 Or, you can buy one of the limited edition pin badges, suggested minimum donation £2. Contact Mark 0n 0044 7834 539685 or at 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.

Mark with his 'Dawes Atlantis' bike in 1981, back in uniform after cycling more than 3,000 miles in 30 days from San Francisco to New York, solo and unsupported for the Police Dependants' Trust.
And at Machu Picchu, Peru in 1988 with the first Raleigh bespoke mountain bike, after cycling from Lima through the Andes and to the legendary 'Lost City of the Incas' for Save the Children.
