On a bicycle made for three.

Martin and Carine Wood are cycling from John O Groats to Lands End, along with their Jack Russell, Jake. They are cycling on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Although they have seen some fantastic scenery, the highlight of the journey has been meeting wonderful helpful people along the way.

The lowpoints have been steering, stopping and trying to get comfortable on board their tandem whilst carrying their luggage and Jake.

Next stop on their route will be Burton-in-Kendal approximately 75 miles. Martin, Carine and Jakes adventures can be found on their blog.

Three men and a lady.

Our quad of visitors last night were, Alexander Roberts, Rose-Marie Turner, Philip Coker and Paul Turner. They are cycling from John O Groats to Lands End to raise money for the Stroke Association. 

Yesterday was day eight of their epic journey and saw them travelling from New Lanark in driving rain. When they arrived they were badly in need of our tumble dryer. With heavy wind and rain also forecast for today the weather has not been very kind so far, but they have had chance to sample a couple of scottish distilleries which may have numbed the pain.

Their continuing adventures can be found on their facebook page.
