Story

John O'Groats to Lands End (but not back again!!!)

B&B Adventures is a team of two loons called Ben and Becks who both enjoy taking on strange challenges in the name of 'fun'. Way back in the depths of time Becks started doing Triathlons and swore blind she'd never do a half Iron Man. She recently completed one. Ben on the other hand started out kayaking and mountain biking and thought long distance endurance was a silly idea. So naturally he started entering multiday endurance races.

Both looking for a new challenge on the next level, and after discarding some really nuts ideas (next time perhaps), B&B have decided to cycle from John O'Groats to Lands End unsupported. Just to spice things up we're also going to take in the most northerly and southerly points on the Mainland too. We're not looking to break records though so we're planning on the trip taking about 14 days. That’s about 70-80 miles per day average. Very civilised on a race bike. Our start date is Sunday 3rd July 2011, just next to the sign post at J O’Gs.

Originally this trip was just going to be for giggles, but it seemed a shame to pass up such a great opportunity to raise money. We are footing the bill for the trip ourselves so any money you donate will go directly to Cancer Research. Our £2000 target is just a number we plucked from the air. It would be great to beat that if possible so please dig deep. :)

Once we have finalised our route we will make it available online and may provide updates via twitter on our location if people would like to come and join us for a leg. It would be great to see people en route.
