Lejog4Rob - helping Rob cope with tetraplegia: On the 15th June Roger Wyn-Jones starts a twelve day cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats to raise money to support Rob Camm, a very close school friend of his twin sons Tomos and Gwilym. Rob was seriously injured in a car accident last September leaving him with a very high level spinal cord injury and dependant on a ventialtor. Rob has shown quite extraordinary determination, courage and humour as he learns to adjust to a new way of life. Money raised will go towards supporting him in a variety of ways.
Thank you for your donation. It means a lot to the Wyn-Jones family and especially to Rob.
A sense of relief, excitement and exhaustion all in one!
Time for a long bath and a celebration this evening. Thank you everyone for your messages of support - they have helped tremendously.
Tomorrow is the last day and brings nearly ninety miles of pedalling to get to JoG. North easterly winds will not help us so it will be a long final day. We are setting off at 8 and hope to reach our destination by 7.
I can't believe how the total raised for Rob has been going up while I have been away, with little access to wifi. It was great to see Rob over a sunny lunch stop near the Severn bridge after a hard morning in the saddle on day 4. Thank you all for your support for Rob; that's what this is all for.
Although we had seen some great scenery on the way up to Glencoe sadly we couldn't see a thing in the cloud and rain as we came down the valley to our destination.
Tomorrow is billed as harder - we ride 82 miles with an elevation gain of 4400' as opposed to today's 66 miles and 3100'. There is also an option of monster hills in the afternoon or a less hilly route via the Loch Ness monster - which monster to choose?!
The forecast suggests that we are riding towards better weather tomorrow which is good as there are more great views to enjoy as we cycle to Inverness.
