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!
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.
Below is a list of the things I got for doing the End to End cycle and how much they cost.
