Richard Allinson takes part in another of his limitless challenges on behalf of WWW. This time:
John o\’ Groat\’s to Lands End Cycle – October 2012
874 miles – 5 days
No set of endurance challenges would be complete without this coast to coast cycle tour of the United Kingdom. Most of those who attempt this challenge allow between 10 and 12 days for the journey, which still requires a demanding 80 miles per day. They also tend to complete it in the summer.
Limitless wouldn\’t be Limitless if we didn\’t set the bar a little higher, so we\’re aiming to complete the entire 874 mile course in only 5 days, meaning we\’ll have to cover an average of 170 miles per day. Longer than the longest day on the Tour de France. Because the schedule won\’t accommodate the ride during the summer, we\’ll also be braving the Autumnal winds to tackle the ride in late October.
