Video : JOGLE 2012

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.
