Broadwith completed his ride of the length of Great Britain in a time of 43 hours, 25 minutes and 13 seconds, going 39 minutes and seven seconds off the previous record of Gethin Butler from 2001, which some had seen as unbeatable, covering the 841 miles at an average speed of 19.4mph/31.2kmh.

Only just found this great JOGLE video on YouTube. Watching this really does make me want to do the End to End cycle again!!

“In August 2012, 6 friends cycled 900 miles from John O’Goats to Lands End and raised over £6000 for 3 charities: HDA, CORDA and BHF.

This short video shows some of the highs and lows of our epic journey. A special thanks needs to be said for Haydn Devine and Kirsty Revitt, our dedicated support team. Without these two, this would have been impossible.

Thank you to everyone who supported us and found the time to donate at our JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/teams/joglecycle2012-all
