Lands End to John  O'Groats
Heres a quick link to each of my blog articles written whilst cycling from Lands End to John  O'Groats on my own ( - I rode on my own as well!).

At the time, they were written to engage with friends and family and to assist in raising awareness for the two charities that I supported and tried to raise money for, whilst riding.

However, as it turned out, they ended up being as much a part of the ride as the cycling! Retrospectively, they have been a big part of helping me get over doing the ride and finally getting to a point where I think I did 'complete' something that was a big challenge. I'm now quite proud of what I did, but it took a lot longer than I would have ever thought.

Read my very late 'Day 14' for more about that bit, but I do hope you enjoy the longer, 'daily-write' version, as it will give more perspective on the above statement. Its honest, that I can assure you!

Not figured out this website palava just yet, so here are a series of direct links to the articles in chronological order, for ease. So as my Dad drilled into me, a story should always have a start, a middle, and an end. I'll paraphrase that, to this:

The 'Before':
Pre-Ride: Final Update  
Pre-Ride: Twas The Night Before Chris Must...

The 'During':
Day 1 - To Finish First, First You Must Finish
Day 2 - A Rollercoater Day
Day 3 - I know, I'm an Idiot  
Day 4 - Why Do I Do This
Day 5 - Every Day I'm Shuffling, Shuffling, Shuffling
Day 6 - Beneath An Iron Sky
Day 7- Gold! Always Believe In Your Soul...
Day 8 - Your Take The High Road, and I'll Take The low
Day 9 - Twistin' My Melon Man (*spoiler alert - I gave up here...)
Day 10 - Guess Whos Back
Day 11 - River Deep, Mountain High
Day 12 - A Bridge over Troubled Water
Day 13 - And Now, The End Is Here!

The 'After':
Day 14 - Show Me The Way To Go Home!
My LEJOG kit list - all I had with me...and its not a lot.
