Steve Rides from Land's End to John O'Groats
In August of last year we set off (the day after Bertha swept through) for 10 and a half days riding from Land's End to John O'Groats, writes Steve Harris. I was on my bike while Janet and the boys, Jamie and Luke, were my support crew in the motor home. The ride had highs and lows as well as good use of sponges with amazing sights along the way finishing with a rainbow at the end. It is amazing how cold the Grampians could be in August while the climb up Shap is amazing with fantastic scenery. I was on the bike for 70 hours burning over 60000 calories and climbing over 30000 feet but the effort was worth it raising £4200 for such a great charity.
