Dawn Hunter - Lands End to John O'Groats

  

Dawn Hunter rides Lands End to John O'Groats - 14th to 28th of June 2015  

 

"At the tail end of summer last year, myself and two friends decided in our wisdom to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats.

After training full on for the next 6 months or more, we began our journey on the 14th of June this year.   After the initial shock of the Cornish and Devon hills our route took us over the Severn bridge into Wales through Ross on Wye and onto the mammoth hills of Cumbria.

After that we went into Scotland via Gretna Green and then up over Aviemore, which by then was easy compared to what had gone before.

We eventually reached John O'Groats 15 days and 1012 miles later.

One funny thing that we all noted along he way was that it is amazing how many people don't have a clue where they live or know about the surrounding area. - For example we asked 4 people in Inverness the way to the Keswick Bridge and we were pointed in 4 different directions with one man saying " I've lived here for 30 years and I've lost my head "!!!!  - So funny.

It was an amazing experience and one I will never forget."

Dawn.

 

Congratulations Dawn and Friends from All at The Ratae.
