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.

Day 20: Bickleigh - Bearslake in the rain

We've averaged less than 6 miles per hour today, due to the undulating Devon countryside, incessant rain and attempts to book our return passage by train from St Ives: you cannot book accommodation for bicycles without a ticket reservation and...

Nevertheless, having spent much of the afternoon in the library (on the Net) of a very wet Okehampton, escaped by way of the 'Granite Railway Line' bike route to Bearslake, also on the edge of Dartmoor. Just 39 miles cycled today, but we have crashed through the 900 mile total.
