The charity I am raising money and awareness for is The Alzheimer's Society, a cause close to our hearts as my Grandparents suffer and my Great Uncle past away from the debilitating effects of Dementia.

I'm sure you'll agree that it is a great cause and I would be extremely grateful if you could donate just a small amount to help our nations suffers. Thank you

The initial idea of making this trip started years ago, so it has been a long time coming. The ride is with my dad, who very recently thought he was going to have to pull out on medical grounds. However this is not the case and the Land's End to John O'Groats will continue as a father son team – unsupported.

On Monday 23rd April 2012 my Dad and I undertook the massive task of cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats for charity. We travelled a colossal 950 miles in 14 days, unsupported!
