Land's End to John O'Groats Solo Supported Single Speed Cycle Ride
Apteco MD, James Alty, committed to ride his single speed bike from Land's End to John O'Groats during his 50th birthday celebrations back in July. He is raising money for the Buwan Kothi International Trust.
James is departing today to drive to Land's End and will start cycling tomorrow morning. The route planned is via Lizard Point and Dunnet Head which will take 14 days to cover 1,014 miles and just under 40,000 ft of ascent! This includes a brief period in Wales and James will reach the Scottish border (independent or not!) on Friday 26th. James will finish riding on Wednesday 1st October.
