Tommy, an 11 year-old from Hampshire has just completed his LEJOG ride in 22 days ... he did ride with his parents!
The full story can be found in The Journals : No 593 - An 11 year-old and Three Old Timers
Tommy's father, Alastair wrote : We started our planning for our LEJOG about 12 months or so before we undertook our adventure and relied heavily on the excellent resource of the CTC forum and Rob ‘s Cycle : End-to-End website. Our tour started on the first day of Tommy’s summer holiday break and was scheduled to last 22 days.
I continue to be inundated with enquiries about places to stay for riders planning their rides - if you are an end-to-ender please, please send details for places where you have stayed and/or tea rooms, cafes etc ... there's a simple form in The Directory section - we check with the establishment and then publish the listings.
"Blind Dave" Heeley from West Bromwich is taking on a challenge that puts just cycling the E2E in the shade .... he intends to run AND cycle almost 1,000 miles in 10 days - raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Each day (from 10 August 2011) will start with a 26.2 mile marathon run, he'll then get on the back of a tandem and cycle the remaining distance scheduled for that day!
Rob the www.cycle-endtoend.org.uk webmaster provided Dave and his support team with some initial route planning maps and a few tips and tricks for the epic ride.
