WOW!! The Peterborough Greyhounds jersey, still fits me, 10 years after doing the End to End cycle.
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!
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!

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.
Thank you to everyone who supported us and found the time to donate at our JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/teams/joglecycle2012-all”
