Burge & Rich to ride Lands End to John O’Groats

Two of Alisons oldest school friends Chris Burgess and Rich Francis have set themselves the challenge of riding the length of Britain to raise funds for Esme’s ongoing physio and care.

The challenge is not for the faint hearted and they hope to do it in about 6 days, starting on 3rd May and finishing around 9th of May. We will be keeping you updated with their progress and route so if you are nearby you can give them a toot (of the horn). But if you feel inclined you can support them by sponsoring their efforts via this site.

This is the plan for the ride:

Stage 1: Lands End to Moreton Hampstead – 111 Miles

Stage 2: to Monmouth – 127 Miles

Stage 3: to Runcorn – 152 Miles

Stage 4: to Keswick – 125 Miles

Stage 5: to Loch Lomond – 161 Miles

Stage 6: to Inverness – 141 Miles

Stage 7: to John O’Groats – 119 Miles

That’s a total of  – 936 Miles…..

Hi Burge and Rich. Wow, what a challenge. I’d come with you but my bike isn’t up to it !!

Great effort, thanks.
