Hi all
a friend of mine is planning to ride from John O'Groats to Lands end he is planning to do this in (4 DAYS).
I have told him i think he will struggle as it is over 200 miles a day but have agreed to go with him and ride with him as encouragement but have told him i will not be capable of riding that distance.
has anyone done this ride if so how difficult was it ect.
cheers

    I did it in 5 days and that was tough only because of rain and headwinds for 4 of those! There was 6 of us although only 5 completed and we had a support vehicle, managed to raise a bundle for charity too. take a look at: http://www.teachersraceagainsttime.com

    Doing it in 4 days is a doable and would be a good challenge but I'd only do it if the weather was favourable.
