Gone Bananas

Aiden and Peter arrived a few days back but Ive only just got around to putting them on my blog.

They are cycling from John O Groats to Lands End in around 9 days cycling over 100 miles every day.

Their favourite part of the journey so far has been the highlands where they said the scenery was breathtaking.

From Gretna Green they were cycling to Darwen which is approximately 120 miles.

As with most of the cyclists we get staying they helped themselves to all our bananas for their journey.

Its a doddle

Six years ago Tom Yuska cycled 4,700 miles across America in 87 days. He did the whole trip unaccompanied. So the mere thousand miles from Lands End to John O Groats should seem a doddle. This time he is doing the journey with his daughter Ellen.
The highlights of the journey so far have been to view the panoramic landscapes of the Lake district from high viewpoints and then enjoy the ride downhill. The worst part of the journey has been Cornwall, where the ups and downs and winding roads was a gruelling task.
