I can think of easier challenges, but our timber buyer, Gerard Magill decided to join a group off fellow cyclists for the challenge to cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End. The event has been
arranged by members of our hauliers Bleaches of Lavant, based near Chichester. The MD of Bleaches, Mick Bleach drove up to Scotland earlier this week, he was followed by the remainder of the group who flew up from Gatwick, ready for their start on the morning of Friday 6 July.
Their first day was cycled in glorious sunshine. They covered 107 miles, with 1400ft climb in 7 hours. That’s not a bad first day.
This morning they started off from Tain at 8.00am, and had covered 45 miles in the first 3 hours! But the weather hasn’t been quite so good. They have now arrived at Ballachulish having covered 114 miles.
Well, hopefully the storms will be kind to them in the coming days. Good luck for tomorrow boys.
Updates to follow.
