Hi Guys,

We're planning a bit of a bike ride in May going from Lands End to John O'Groats.

We were thinking of going with a company called Discover Adventure. They charge £1400 to do it in 12 days. Has anyone heard of these or know a good alternative company?

Has anyone done this trip & got any good advice for us (we are novices)? We were thinking of going on a Boardman Hybrid from Halfords, any thoughts?

If anyone would like to sponsor us, here's the link:

Cheers, Chris. x

Just something I've always fancied doing & thought it would raise a few quid for a worthy cause.
Started training last week & managed to clock up 200 miles in a week. I think I'm just a glutton for punishment!

Best of luck....200miles is great!

They say their route was 986 miles.

To do it in 12 days would need to hit around 82 miles a day

Yep, Our training plan does 50 miles per day with a rest day inbetween. I think it's like marathon runners never do the full 26 miles in training, maybe????

Discover are fab! I have taken part in 3 charity treks with them, China, Peru and Namibia, Iceland this year in August.
Best of luck.
