The Southern Area Lands End to John O’Groats cycling team triumphantly reached John O’Groats on Friday afternoon 6 August at 4.30pm having pedaled over 970 miles from Lands End. The abiding memory for the team will be the camaraderie, friendship and hospitality offered by the Sea Cadet Units along the route. From Penzance to Wick we were welcomed, hosted and looked after in a marvelous fashion by everyone. With just two punctures, one chain that came off and two minor falls the entire trip went extremely smoothly, and we were even blessed with a fortnight without any significant rain and very little wind. After a celebratory meal of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties prepared by Unit staff at Wick, they then had a 16 hour mini-bus drive back to the South Coast (thank you TS Alamein for the invaluable loan of your Unit mini-bus!). The team thanks everyone who has donated and encourage others to do so at; www.justgiving.com/SASeacadetsLEJOG All money raised will go to help more of our youngsters to experience life offshore or to take part in the excellent outward bound courses that we run in Snowdonia.
