GB Divide Cycle for Brain Tumour Support

I'm attempting to cycle the GB Divide as a fundraiser for Brain Tumour Support. They've greatly helped out my best mate Ben, as well as many others, so any support would be hugely welcome, and a massive motivator on the long gruelling days in the saddle. 

The route goes from Lands End to John O'Groats, the non-direct way and via all the hills. It's 2000km in distance, and 27,080m of climbs - that's equivalent to three Everest summits, and some. 

To make it a bit more fun, please have a crack at guessing when I'll complete it, with the closest to the mark recieving the very special prize of a framed pair of the socks I cycle it in.  I'm starting on the morning of August 17th from Lands End, Cornwall, so stick a date and time in the comment, and feel free of course to choose DNF, which is a distinct possibility. A link to the route can be found here: and I'll be cycling it fully loaded with gear, as I intend to be fully self sufficient, so camping along the route (although I may be tempted to spend a night in my bed when passing through Bristol!). For those keen to track my progress, I'll try and instagram my location and some photos on the way, so feel free to follow me @pitpatmat and maybe even send over some messages of support. 

More information about Brain Tumour Support: Brain Tumour Support is the only brain tumour charity dedicated to support across the South West and Midlands, and provides specialist, tailored services for anyone affected by any type of brain tumour. We provide specialist information, practical guidance, emotional and psychological support, and help coping with bereavement for as long as it is needed. 

Like many other charities at the moment, they've been struggling with funding due to Covid's impact on fundraising, so your support will be even more welcome.
