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.

The Bikes used

In view of the proposed route which combined both conventional road and off-road (Sustrans) routes, both Paul and Mark opted for hybrid type bikes.  Robbo's trusty steed was a Dawes.  Stokesy's, a brand new Specialized Crosstrail Pro which in matt black paintwork he christened his 'stealth bike'.
