Charity bike ride from Land's End to John O'Groats
9:54am Monday 17th September 2012 in Community
A 51-year-old man from Eltham will embark on a 3-week 988-mile cycle to raise funds for Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice this month.
Andrew Duncan will set off on a charity cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the furthest possible distance in the British Isles, on September 18.
Starting at Land’s End on the southwesterly tip of England, Andrew will pedal his way through Cornwall, over Dartmoor and north along the Welsh border, skirting the Lake District into Scotland, via lochs and mountains to the North coast and John O’Groats to pass through some of the most stunning and remote countryside in the British Isles.
“Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice is where my Dad spent his last few days,” said Andrew.
“I’ve always supported the Hospice with regular donations to the Hospice shops but this will be my biggest challenge.
“I’ll be camping and staying in hostels along the way.”
