My Story

I’ve stepped up to join this years Longest Day Up. This exciting and daunting challenge of traveling from Lands End to John O’Groats, setting off at sunrise and arriving before sunset. To make things more interesting we’re avoiding all motorways. And don’t forget the real tricky bit, bikes must cost no more than £600. Just for the fun of it, try finding yourself a road worthy bike for that kind of money!! One thing i hadn't considered is the 5 hour ride to Lands End before the event even begins. there's also a 10 hour ride home after the circa 1000 mile journey. I'm sure the day will be filled with highs and lows. For the 40 riders taking part this year, what better way to raise money for this great cause. Unfortunately we all know someone effected by cancer, Let's fight it together! Oh, I nearly forget to introduce you to my £600 steed for the challenge. After viewing a handful of bikes I purchased this 30 year old BMW K100LT. BMW once considered this to be the "luxury model" but im not convinced. She’s covered 89000 miles and it shows! Needs a bit of tinkering ready for the day. I’ll keep you updated on how that’s coming along. Again, a massive thanks to you all! BIGGEST SQUEEZE TO THE HEROS WHO HAVE ALREADY DONATED. YOU ABSOLUTE STARS!
