OV Cycles from Land’s End to John O’Groats

With great support from his family as his support team, Jim Fawcett (S 85-94) cycled from Land’s End to John o’Groats  in July 2019, completing a round trip after walking it the other way in 1999. The 20th anniversary ride was 1035 miles long and took 19 days to complete in frequently appalling weather, rather shorter than the 3 month trek made 20 years previously.

The ravages of time have definitely generated a MAMIL (Middle Aged Man in Lycra), but a very happy one! The route took him via the home of Helen Bates (née Webster, S 92-94), who provided a welcome cuppa on day 3.
