Cycling Land’s End to John O’Groats
Paul and Adam, father and son, were looking for a challenge and adventure to take on together in the summer of 2021, and decided on the iconic LEJOG challenge. Not only did they cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats, but they also stopped on the way and climbed Mount Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis (the three peaks) while they were at it.
Paul tells us that they hadn’t initially planned to raise money for charity, and had just planned it as an epic father and son experience, however when Paul learned of Children with Cancer UK they decided to also include fundraising in their challenge. To date Paul and Adam have raised an amazing £3,877 for Children with Cancer UK.
When asked how they found the challenge overall, Paul said:
It was a total challenge, both physically and mentally exhausting. A lot of preparation and planning went into this, but until you’re actually putting foot to peddle for those distances every day you don’t know how the body or bike will hold up. Thankfully we didn’t experience any mechanical problems with the bikes.
