Land's end to John o' Groats

With everyone arriving at Lands end feeling a little nervous but enjoying the sunshine and hoping it lasted all the way to John o' Groats.
The first few days through Cornwall and Devon was tough with a head wind and crossing over Dartmoor some big hill climbs.
From Devon we headed towards the welsh borders and some fantastic riding everyone was pretty settled in and enjoying the country side and still the the sun was shining.
From the welsh borders we shot through the north west and into the lakes and a warm welcome with Shap hill.
Before everyone knew it we were in bonny Scotland and everyone was looking forward to this section of the challenge.
Our route took us up the west coast first then finally crossing over to the east coast and onto John o' Groats

After 12 days riding everyone was feeling a little sore and very happy to reach John o' Goats a huge amount of money was raised for charity and a huge amount of beers was drunk in Inverness.
