Well a wheely good morning to you all from a van trundling back home from John O Groats. In about 14/15 hours we will be back in Swindon having completed our epic journey and what a trip it has been.
The last 4 days saw us take on the majority of Scotland and the beautiful scenery it has to offer. The road from Gretna up to Lockerbie was arrow straight and gave us a chance to hone our TT skills. Then Day 9 was a fabulous trip along the canal path from Fort William to Fort Augustus where we joined the minor road over our toughest climb of the trip. Average of 10% for over 5 km’s that was just brutal.
Finally we got to Day 10 and that first morning when we left Lands End seemed a lifetime away. The last day was heavy rain and winds for most of the day and posed a challenge in its own right but gradually that finish line was in sight and the realisation kicked in.
We had completed the 1435 km’s from one end of the UK to the other in 10 days and had a scream all the way. It was a lifelong experience and in turn raised lots of money for two great charities. Thank you for all the support.
We kindly ask that if you are able to pledge, please choose one of the charities below that you wish to support or split it evenly between the two charities in the links below. One is the Swindon Downs group which is very close to me and my sister and the other The British Heart Foundation. Thank you so much all of you. X
