Michael Broadwith has become the first rider to set a new Land’s End – John o’Groats record in 17 years as he knocked nearly 40 minutes off the previous mark.

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.

I think that I have sorted out the pannier rack problem, after  e-mailing lots of different on-line shops and posting to the Cycling Weekly forums. It turns out that 29″ tyres are the same as 700c, why they have two names, I have no idea.  So thanks to everyone that helped sort it out for me!

I would like to say a big thank-you to the two on-line shops that did get back to me. Them being Chain Reaction Cycles and Wiggle.  I am also a wee bit pissed off that the Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative, did not get back to me, after spending so much money on a new bike from them.

It looks like I will be getting “LifeLine Alloy Disc Brake Rear Rack” from Wiggle.
