Journey’s end

The final report has been received from the Land’s End to John o’ Groats cycle team who have posted the following: “After a fairly gruelling final 75 miles on Day 16 of our Land’ End to John o’ Groats, the team supported by two Travelandinsure directors crossed the finish line at 6.15pm on Sunday 20th July.  Not content with just the rain that has followed our progress right from the start, the elements decided to throw in a 30 mph headwind for good measure.  Departing from the tiny village of Altnahara, near Lairg, the route took us north along deserted minor roads to reach the Atlantic ocean at Bettyhill.  Then east along Scotland’s northernmost coastline through Thurso to John o’ Groats.  A journey of 960 miles since setting out on Saturday 5 July was never going to be a straight forward affair though we did not expect the weather to be so set against us but it as been worth all the effort. Some family members had travelled all the way to be there at the finish and to host an unexpected evening party which we all so appreciated.”  The team have now set off by minibus to return to Devon and for our staff members to return to Chichester.  What has been overwhelming is the way the general public have rallied to the cause.  Not only have people been really interested in the cycle feat itself but have been so generous in their support.  A mid way stop over in Carlisle for a quiet meal in Franco’s Ristorante resulted in a spontaneous donations to the Pokot Trust Project.  We could not ask for more.  This article is brought to you by travelandinsure.com – specialist in ethical travel insurance.
