End to End
Jess has had it in her head for some time that she wants to ride from Lands End to John O’Groats. Not the scenic route, mind – she wants to do it in one day! Yes, that’s nearly 900 miles in a single day!
I’m a bit sceptical as I feel that it could be a bit unsafe if fatigue sets in. Anyway, she made friends with Pete West, UK President of the Iron Butt Association, when they met at Ride to the Wall last year and he assured us that it was achievable safely and they have been plotting ever since.
Pete has a couple of other friends that would like to do it as well and Jess has roped me in too, so we are a total of five. The date is set for Sat 23 July 2011 and we shall ride bottom to top. i.e. Lands End to John O’Groats.
Jess has decided to do her ride as a charity run and will do it in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. (EACH)
