Starting on Friday 26th May 2017, Graham and Keith will start a 920mile/1500km ride on a tandem bike. We will be aiming to set the World Record for ‘Fastest time from Lands End to John O’Groats on a Tandem (Male)’.

The ride begins in in Land’s End – the south-western most point in the UK – and hopefully(!) finishes 11 days later at John O’Groats – the most Northern point in the UK.

Although we will be unassisted on the road (dealing with our own feeding, mechanicals and punctures), we will have the support of our friend Nigel – who will be driving our support van from campsite to campsite which will be our start/finish locations each day.

We’re breaking the ride down into 11 stages, the summary of the stages is below:
