We are in the process of collecting the cash sponsorship donations. Amazingly Ian "Stan" Cadell has just dropped a cheque off for £1195.00! This is an amazing amount for one person to raise, well done.

Just a quick update to thank everyone that has so far donated. It really was motivating the team as we cycled that people continued to donate. We are aware that some people like to donate after the event. This is absolutely fine. Every penny counts! Please keep encouraging others

Approximately 6pm on the evening of Friday 21st June 2013 14 very tired cyclists arrived at John O'Groates. After 7 days cycling 130 miles per days everyone did themselves proud. A massive achievement for all but no more so than Ian Caddle following his rehab. Well done lads.
