Next month a group of us from the club; Paul Schofield, Chris Brobin, John Murray, and myself (Andy Quicke) are tackling Lands End to John O Groats by bike.
We are aiming to do it in eight days as below - so if anybody would like to join us for part of a leg, has some pearls of wisdom or any ideas re stopovers please let us know!
We are also looking to raise funds for a couple of charities which we will add a link to below.
