Mel Kirkland – end to end……..and a bit more.


Felt I needed to do a long ride before my Edinburgh- London fitness disappeared.
Emailed Rocco about his very long 3,100k great triangle, and chose something shorter.
So on Sunday 13th I rolled the Litespeed down to Lands End (500k in 24hrs. Sleep, then Tuesday morning set off for JOG into a really nasty headwind. Nearly 6 hours for 100k was awful and only 340k in 24 hrs was even worse, but keep going. 670k in 48hrs, no time to stop, Lots of Tesco crunchy bars, and shivering on benches bus shelters and churchyards. Single hotel/sleep stop) at Locherbie (12hrs off the bike), off route to Inverary. Eventually after 1,500k and 108hrs arrived JOG Saturday night. Only ScotRail wouldn’t take the bike till Tuesday, so I had to ride it back to Inverness!
