Story

We did it! After 70 hours and 30 minutes and 850 miles, we arrived in John O'Groats at 8.30 am on Friday 29 August.

Many thanks to everyone sponsoring and supporting us, it really helped to keep us going on the road. You can see photos from the trip on our blog:

Thank you for visiting our team fundraising page.

We all know someone who suffers from this progressive neurological condition.  In fact one person in every 500 has Parkinson's.  That's about 127,000 people in the UK and there is currently no cure.

We are trying to raise as much money as possible for research and development to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

On a personal level, Josh (a rider) and Tom (a driver) Walker's 61 year old Mother was diagnosed with Parkinson's approximately 10 years ago and they are very passionate about the cause.

The aim is to cycle from Lands End to John o Groats in a non stop 3 team relay, in under 80 hours. 

So that's over 850 miles in under 80 hours...on bicycles!!!!

This is not just a cycling challenge, it is also a mental/stamina challenge with lack of sleep, fatigue and being stuck in a vehicle with several ugly blokes  between rides.

We thank you for taking your time to read our story and ANY donations to this worthy cause would be very greatly received.

You can now also sponsor us by text. Just send the code LJNS80 followed by £2, £5 or £10 to 70070 (see pictures). You can add gift aid as well via the reply (can take a while to process).

Thank you.
