I have put a date in the diary for cycling Lands End to John O Groats – 19 June 2010. I have set up a 22-week training plan and Leigh and I are working on the logistics of making it happen.
We’ve contacted the police regarding cycling with a follow-vehicle behind as in RAAM (Race Across America), but the police have so far been very negative, suggesting that its illegal to go at such a slow speed. Of course we don’t accept that response, and we’re working on a solution.
Unfortunately, my very first training session in the plan has been obliterated by a work event – I’ve been asked to host a party at the Manchester United football game on that day. Never mind, I will re-jig the schedule to accommodate the change.
