Richard Hood - Lands End To John O'Groats May and June

Over the Whitsun Bank Holiday Week we will be cycling the length of Britain, starting at Land's End on 28 May and (all going well..) arriving at John O'Groats on 5 June 2011.

As we're getting no younger, it's an ambition that we thought we should fulfil now rather than later. Whilst keen on cycling, we are not regular distance road cyclists so this will be quite a challenge for us. As well as enjoying the ride and the beatiful scenery of Great Britain along the way, we hope to raise money for charity. All donations and sponsorship will greatly appreciated.

We will be posting daily throughout our cycle ride so that you can follow our progress and enjoy some of the experience without any of the exertion. The blog will therefore come alive on the evening of 28 May with loads of content - pictures, video and stories from along the way.
