LANDS END TO JOHN O'GROATS
SEP 9-19TH 2019
They made it!
On September 9th 2019, fifteen amateur cyclists rode from Lands End to John o'Groats, the entire length of Britain. (960 miles in 10 days).
2 of those 15 riders (Paul Cook, 45 and Nigel Shaddick - 51) have mesothelioma so this was a particularly astonishing achievement due to the aggressive nature of this cancer.
The team have been overwhelmed by the support received on their journey. All funds raised will go to Erase Meso raising much needed funds for research.
The riders climbed around 15,000m over the 10 days. That is around 13 times up Alpe d’Huez or almost twice the height of Everest!
You can still say "well done" by donating now. However big or small, your contribution means the world!
The legendary Sir Chris Hoy found out about the cycle challenge and very kindly sent this message of support to our LEJOG Cycling Challenge Team.
Mark Beaumont, world-record-breaking cylist and author of "Around the World in 80 Days" sends words of encouragement to our LEJoG cycling team. His book inspired our challenge. Thanks for your support, Mark!
