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 22 - North Cornwall coast

Day 22 - the penultimate day's cycling from Padstow to St. Ives and for once we had both fine weather and a tail-wind, the first since Day 4 in Sutherland, north-west Scotland almost three weeks ago.
However, the terrain along the north Cornwall coast is unremitting and every downhill surge is followed by a hard slog uphill. Consequently. it was past 6pm when we finally reached St. Ives after a mere 48 mile slog.

We're aiming to arrive at Land's End sometime tomorrow afternoon.

Robbo along the North Cornwall coast!
