In June 2015 I am planning to ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
It has been a dream of mine to complete this epic journey for many years now, long before I rediscovered my love of cycling 5 years or so ago.
The journey is the ultimate cycling test: 900 miles of cycling, over 40,000 feet of climbing and anything from 8-14 days in the saddle depending on your route and your determination.
I am hoping to complete the journey in 8 days. But that will require completing well over 100 miles per day. Cycling 100+ miles in one day is quite a feat in itself. To do that for eight consecutive days is something else entirely, especially when some of those days will be spent traversing the highest hills in the UK.
