Justin's Charity Bike Ride For The Castle School

This summer I'm taking a leap into the unknown by attempting to ride a bicycle from Lands End to John O Groats.  That's 900 miles sat on a very thin bike saddle, ouch!

I think, given the year we've had, that I just wanted to do something a little uplifting and raise some cash for charity (while keeping at bay my middle-aged waistline).

It's something of a personal challenge as I love cycling and I'm a keen member of Thornbury Cycling Club, though unsurprisingly I've never tried to ride this far before.  Especially as it's all uphill going from south to north ;-)

More than that, I want to help out Castle School Friends , which is a great local charity run by volunteers raising much-needed funds to support students and staff at our much-loved school in Thornbury.

I'm planning to ride 50 miles a day so the challenge should take just under three weeks to complete. I'll be posting regular updates on this page so do come back to find out how wet and tired I am.

Any support would be marvellous whether it's a message of encouragement, directions to the best watering holes en route, news of better weather to come, or that all-important donation to The Castle School.

Just in case you're wondering, I'll be following all the stated covid advice along the way, so no worries there.

Thank you for checking out this page.  Next stop John O Groats!
