    I have decided as of this morning that I'm going to exercise cycle from John O' Groats to Land's End

    The distance is 838.7 miles (according to the AA Route Planner).

    I'm going to keep a ticker going with how far I've done and how far I've got left to go. I'm planning to cycle daily, but it might not happen, you know how things get in the way sometimes.

    So, anyone else up for cycling to Land's End with me? It doesn't matter how far you cycle each day. It might be 1/2 a mile or it might be 10 miles.. go at your own pace.

    I managed 5 miles this morning, accompanied by Bon Jovi helping me to cycle LOL (I wish).

    So, my first ticker! I'll add it into my siggy in a bit.

    So who's joining me?

    I go spinning twice a week usually and I do between 15 to 20 miles each time so I've worked out that I'd have to go spinning over 40 times (which would take 5 months) to get to 833 miles... I'll see how it goes!

    Ohhh I like the sound of this challenge. My bike (pedal bike) is currently being held hostage by the bike repair shop so perhaps I could start off by walking and see where it gets me and if by any change I manage to negotiate my bikes release from that nasty man I can cycle too.

    Great idea xx

    I would love to think I'll combine the walking and cycling. Could someone tell me how to access and apply those wonderful tickers you have all got. Looking forward to the challenge!
