Every year, many people cycle Land's End to John o'Groats, but CTC member Walter Wright decided to cycle the route the other way round in a fortnight.
It was reading other people’s cycling blogs that inspired me to have a go myself. I had never cycled further than a day ride before, so in hindsight, taking on a solo unsupported fourteen day End-to-End as a first tour may have seemed reckless.
I decided to start at John o’Groats in late September and work my way to Lands’ End using a mixture of main roads and cycle tracks. The summer was spent route-planning, reading more cycling blogs and going for increasingly longer day rides.
