Wet, but glad with the results

On the 12th of July, Charlie Homer, Colin Morrison (GAGA ambassador) and another Charlie, completed their cycle ride from end of the UK to the other via Durness (one of the most northerly points of the UK). It was roughly a 900 mile journey. The ‘End to End’ challenge is never easy but having done it in the wettest July on record it only added to the effort needed to complete the journey.

The whole team was wet from start to finish. They had only one day of sunshine out of 10 days they were on the road. Travelling through The Highlands with torrential rain and wind chill the team neared hyperthermia, and spent 30 minutes+ in the shower afterwards just to warm up!!

The whole team, including Karen Morrison our very able and completely indispensable support crew (person), enjoyed the trip and spirits always remained high.

So far they have raised over £3,000, twice their target. There is still time to support the ride by following this link.
