I’m going to be a guest on Steve Backshall’s ‘Live n Deadly’ programme on BBC2 / CBBC this Saturday (1st October) at 9am. I’m really looking forward to the show… It’s going out live – so no pressure!
We’ve finished! It’s done. What a brilliant journey. Wonderful team, excellent bike and loads of support… Thank you everyone. The best part about getting to John O groats – my mum was there waiting for me! More soon… just need to get some sleep now!
There’s nothing like a good nights sleep and waking up to clear skies to make happy bikers. We left Nairn campsite early and were soon crossing the Keswick bridge – smaller than all the other bridges but still, as bridges go, it was ok… We cycled along the waters edge for a while which was […]
We were up earlier than normal this morning and on the road by 7.15am. Within meters we came across this huge Scottish monster… We knew today would be hard, we had to ride up and over the Scottish ski fields, Glen Shee and Leich. We rode across the Cain Gorms and into the high lands. […]
Amazingly my ankles are feeling much better and today we cycled the Kingdom! We left Peebles slightly later than scheduled and made our way towards the city of Edinburgh. The weather was fine, no rain and a trailing wind behind us. We made our way through the traffic and dodgy road conditions to find our […]
… Literally! It seems that my ankles have really taken offence at turning my bike pedals non stop for the last 6 days. First my left ankle, now my right. However, with Matt’s fantastic strapping it all seems manageable .. at the moment. Anyway, we’re in Scotland!! We have cycled the length of England and […]
After such a great meal, excellent company and fantastic lodgings last night we were all feeling pretty hot to trot this morning. How things can change during a single day… The first 40miles went well, the weather was good and riding up around Blackburn and into Lancashire were right gorgeous I tell thee! Then we […]
Monday 19th September No rain and no punctures! It was a very good day. We left Somerset nice and early and then took ages navigating through Bristol. The cycle paths are great, they just take a bit of figuring out. It was cool to reach the severn bridge… and feel the movement on it. It’s […]
The wind and rain didn’t let up all night last night and when we got up at 6.15am this morning it sounded like we at the centre of a hurricane! The met office had also released a weather warning. Hmmm…. By 7.30am it had improved a little. Riding the first 35miles through driving rain and […]
I’m tired! We did 108miles today. There was a fair few hills, a few wrong turns and the weather pretty much went in continuous cycles of sun, wind, rain… sun, wind, rain… sun, wind, rain… It was perfect really, every time we got wet wet we always had a blow dry afterwards. I managed to […]
