A challenge that has endured for centuries. On June 16th 2019, I will be embarking on The ‘End to End’, which has been an iconic cycling challenge since before the Tour de France was even a glint in Henri Desgrange’s eye. It always has and always will be a true test of stamina and will.
Starting from the rugged coastline of Cornwall, on to the rolling hills and valleys of the North of England, right up the barren majesty of the Scottish highlands, I’ll be covering around 1,000 miles through beautiful moorlands, hidden green valleys, winding back lanes, stunning coastal roads and historic sites.
The shortest route is by no means the best. Ernest Hemingway once wrote, “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best.” I haven’t chosen the shortest route from A to B. Cycling gives you a unique perspective on a country and I have chosen a longer route which takes me through places that other routes would miss, and I would love it if you could also support me in this journey by giving a donation to charity.
