The first offroad End-End

Back in 1995 I set out to establish the first ever MTB offload record from Lands End-John O’Groats - the blue ribbon challenge of British cycling record breaking. The tale was one of great let downs, hindrance, lack of support and recognition and of personal indifference - and one that was not only a first, but which has never been beaten.

There was no Guinness along the way, or afterwards - a choice made by backers, but that really doesn’t matter, this one was most definitely personal.
