Heres a quick link to each of my blog articles written whilst cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats (LEJOG) on my own ( – I rode on my own as well!).
At the time, they were written to engage with friends and family and to assist in raising awareness for the two charities that I supported and tried to raise money for, whilst riding.
However, as it turned out, they ended up being as much a part of the ride as the cycling! Retrospectively, they have been a big part of helping me get over doing the ride and finally getting to a point where I think I did ‘complete’ something that was a big challenge. I’m now quite proud of what I did, but it took a lot longer than I would have ever thought.
Read my very late ‘Day 14′ for more about that bit, but I do hope you enjoy the longer, ‘daily-write’ version, as it will give more perspective on the above statement. Its honest, that I can assure you!
Not figured out this website palava just yet, so here are a series of direct links to the articles in chronological order, for ease. So as my Dad drilled into me, a story should always have a start, a middle, and an end. I’ll paraphrase that, to this:
Day 9 – Twistin’ My Melon Man (*spoiler alert – I gave up here…)
enjoy, but if you don’t, then complaints can be sent to:
