Story

Motorcycle challenge that takes places on the longest day of the year, 21 June 2019. Bikers leave Lands End at sunrise and aim to reach John O'Groats by sunset following a designated route. Motorcycles must cost no more than £300 (not including the cost of insurance, MOT, tyres or brakes) and must have valid MOT certificate. Accommodation and on the road support will be provided. Places are limited.

This is now the 3rd year running I have done this challenge. As I do it in memory of my sister who got me into bikes in the first place, the event is on her birthday every time and we lost her to the big C, why would I not take part, it’s everything she enjoyed and I’m sure was she here she would ride the challenge too.

Please think about have one drink less this Friday night whilst I’m taking part in this challenge and donate it to a very worthy cause instead.

Ok so all the fuel etc has now gone through and I’ve been left with £54.05 surplus and have still one donation waiting to come in,so as promised this will now be added to the pot. As soon as the final sponsor puts in his donation that will be added also. Thanks to everyone who supported me and made donations in one form or another. Delighted to have raised nearly the same as I have done in previous years when I usually set my target at £1000. This year I set it reasonably low at £250 because I only signed up literally a handful or so days before the event. Once again, you’ve done us proud with your kindness and generosity. Let’s keep working at beating this dreadful disease so others don’t have to suffer the same fate as our loved ones have. ❤️

So that’s it....we’ve all done it. Only 2 bikes that didn’t survive the 1021 mile test! (1 of them turned out to be a kinked fuel pipe stopping fuel getting to engine and naturally he was gutted spotting it this morning after a sleep on it). Once the fuel money has all gone through any leftover will, as promised, be added to my donations page here to go directly to Cancer Research UK. Thank you all for your donations and support throughout and the fundraising pages stay open for a while yet too so if your just reading this you can still donate that £1 or whatever you choose. As a team we have raised over £32,000 together for just this years event! Staggering! I’m off to rest my sore bits for the rest of the day now before I settle back to normality. See you all in 2020 to do it all again :)

Cause

Breast cancer

With almost 140 women diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. And, although rarer, around 350 men are also diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The good news is more than two-thirds of women now survive 20 years or more. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
