I often get asked just how much the End to End cycle cost me. Here is total cost…. it was… wait for it…. £1,667.85. This does not include the food, which I have still to work out. The cost could have been much less, if I had not got a new bike for the cycle, which set me back £549.99. I also got a GPS for the £323.99, which I could have done the cycle without it, just made things easier since I did not have to get out paper maps all the time.
Also lots of the items below are one off costs. The bike, should do me for at least 5 to 10 years. The GPS, also gets used all the time. So next time, I do the End to End cycle, means I will only really have to spend money on accommodation and food.
