The date for the cycle ride from Lands End to John O’Groats has now been set. We aim to head off on Saturday, 19th July.
Pete and Mary have been preparing for the long ride in their native Guernsey, whilst I have been putting in the miles cycling around London, on my way to and from work. However, even though I am knocking out about 20-25 miles a day, I really need to crank things up a gear or two.
Next Friday, I am off to Bridgewater, to see Thorn. They make some greats bikes and I have decided to go for one after Pete and Mary advocated how good they were. I’ve never been keener to spend my money on a bike!
