John O’Groats to Tongue 10 years on

This time, 10 years ago, I would have been cycling between John O’Groats to Tongue. A distance of 64.22 miles, with an elevation gain of 1,237 metres. It was the first, time I had ever been to that part of Scotland and till this day, can’t believe how totally amazing the views were!

Check out the route, over at www.strava.com/activities/445506836 and please do give me a kudos. Only had two so far! That’s due to Strava, not being a thing back then!

10 years ago, I was in John O’Groats!

Would you believe it?!?! This time, 10 years ago, I would have been in John O’Groats. Which can only mean one thing. It was just one sleep, till I started doing the John O’Groats to Land’s End (JOGLE) cycle. Which took me from John O’Groats at the very top mainland Scotland, to Lands End at the very end of England. A distance of just over 990 miles.

I would, still rate it, as one of the best things, I’ve ever done! Maybe also one of the hardest. That’s the bit, I did need to speak about! I did make it all the way, to end, which is the main thing!



My End to End cycle route data is now on Strava

Strava logoI’ve just uploaded the data from the End to End cycle that I did back in August 2009 to Strava.
