Dan set to bike from Lands End to John O’Groats – off-road and unsupported!

Well his bike is packed and he’s on his way to the start… Dan Critchley is doing a solo 2000 km bike ride from Lands End to John O Groats, 50% off road and 27000m of ascent setting off on the 14th September…until whenever he makes it…? He will be self supported, sleeping under the stars on the trail and riding as far as he can each day….so basically in his element! He is doing it to raise money for St Mary’s Hospice as his wife Ella explains:

“St Mary’s Hospice has a place in our hearts as we know friends and family who’s lives cancer has touched and we cannot value enough the work they do for our community through their compassion and care. If you can give a little to spur Dan on his way and help support this wonderful charity, that’d be ace!”
