Planning the 2011 End to End cycle

Team2011. Left to right: Tyler, Dan, Gordon, Tom and Luke.

I had so much fun doing the End to End cycle in August 2009. I have started to planning to do the cycle again, this time for 2011. Yes I know that 2011 is a good while away, but it will give me lots of time to save up money again for it. Also this time, going to get a big group of us going it.

So far at least 4 other people have said they are up for doing it :). They are people that I work with at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium. How they will be with so many of us wanting to take the time off, all at once I have no idea.

Now I really can’t wait for the summer of 2011. Just hope I have better weather this time!

More news on Team2011 soon…

They nailed it! In 82 hours, seven celebrities cycled the length of the UK, day and night, scaling 1,000ft peaks, battling icy blizzards and lows of -15C.

Listening to them on the Scott Mills show on BBC Radio 1, was great. I was so happy for them, it made me remember when I did it last year.
