A rainy start.

This lovely couple are John Nicholas and Betty Budge and they are cycling from Lands End to John O Groats on behalf of Butterwick Hospice Care.
Yesterdays journey brought them from Elterwater in the Lake District to Gretna Green. They are taking the journey in steady stages in order to enjoy the experience. Their fondest memories so far have included the beautiful sunsets over Cornwall, and the peace and serenity of the Lake District.
Todays journey will take them to Kirkconnel and from there to the Isle of Arran.
The weather has been kind to the pair so far, but this morning started with a bit of rain.

Solo Cycle

Campbell Thompson is cycling from John O Groats to Lands End in aid of The VRH (A charity which helps young people who are struggling with reading to develop a love of reading and learning). As a father of two children it is a charity close to his heart.

The weather so far has not been very favourable and Campbell spent the second day cycling entirely in the rain. The forecast for the rest of the week is however very good.

He is cycling solo after other members dropped out due to work commitments.Yesterday Campbell cycled from his parents home in Milngavie to Gretna Green. Today he hopes to be somewhere near Clitheroe in Lancashire.

Details of his charity can be found here.
