I am not a cyclist .... but I do like a challenge. This year, Mark Howard QC kindly laid down the gauntlet... He's one of the Heads of Chambers, so I agreed. I didn't have much time between March and August to get ready but between 8 and 16 September I cycled 970 miles in nine days straight to get to John O'Groats from Land's End: http://www.rideacrossbritain.com/.
I was riding for Protimos (http://www.protimos.org ) which I supported for 5 years as a director from 2012 until early this year. The money I raise is dedicated to my brother, Chris, who died after 96 days in intensive care ten years ago in 2007. His was a feat of endurance which eclipses the effort involved in this challenge.
