Lock and Quay

Jim and his brother-in-law Simon are cycling from Lands End to John-O-Groats raising money for Mcmillan Cancer Support . The journey will take 15 days in total.

Much of the journey so far has been along canal towpaths, which has had many advantages and disadvantages. The big advantage was a scenic trafic free route, but the disadvantage was a slow bumpy route.

The pair are very much enjoying their journey and have found some excellent cafes on the way. Jim and Simons charity page can be found here
and you can read about their adventures on their facebook page.

From the Land of the Midnight Sun to the Land of the Wind and Rain.

It has been several months since we have had any cyclists so last night we welcomed our first cyclists of 2017.

Arne Fagerlie and Rita Gundersen from Stovner in Norway travelled from Crawford in pouring wind and rain yesterday. They are cycling from John O Groats to Lands End.

The couples favourite part of the journey has been the stretch from Fort William to Oban. They are now hoping for better weather.

In a previous year Arne has travelled the length of Norway by foot.
