About the Challenge
Myself and Paul will be attempting the LEJOG (Land's End to John o' Groats) ride, which is approximately 900 Miles. This will very likely be more if I let Paul take charge of the navigating!
More about cycling from Land's End to John o' Groats on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
We will be commencing our challenge on the 12th April 2012 and (if things go according to plan) we should be complete by about 20th April 2012. We are aiming to cycle between 100 to 120 miles per day with overnight stays in local Bed & Breakfast establishments of our choice along the route.

Paul will be cycling for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. A close friend (of Paul's) got the dreaded news a few months ago, and in Paul's words, "so many of us are affected by people we know who are in the same situation".
