Thurso to John o’Groats

On our last day we found it difficult to get out of the hotel for our usual early start. A mixture of sadness at our final morning on the bikes and some tired legs from battling the wind yesterday afternoon. Eventually we rallied ourselves and made for the door.

With the a gale blowing from the west, we headed east out of town at some pace.


Luckily, for most of the way the wind propelled us through the exposed landscape of Caithness until all too quickly our journey came to an end at  John o’Groats.


The bus back to Thurso was a couple of hours away so it gave us plenty of time to write some postcards, have a bite to eat and of course to celebrate Cate’s birthday.


Our last day.

Thanks so much for the support everyone. There is still time to sponsor us for the last 20 miles to John O’Groats.

We would love to break the £2000 mark by the end of the ride.
