lands end - john o'groats - lands end attempt

Post by Rthoday on Sat Oct 19, 2013 5:22 am

It could only be Hoppo couldn't it!
He is having a go at the record for riding both ways non stop, record currently held by Ben Rockett 5 days 21 hours 8 minutes!

Hoppo is short of one support crew member so if you fancy some sleep deprivation then give him a call.
Attempt starts at 9am on Sun 27th Oct from Lands End.

Let's hope he doesn't have those nasty N/E winds like earlier in the year.......until he reaches John O'Groats of course!

Looks like Chris´ll have a 30mph WSW when he sets off on Sunday morning. Must be better than a 30mph ENE! Very Happy 

Hope the ol´nutter has a good one.

Latest update from Chris:

"Hoppo has completed 352 miles in 24hrs exactly on target"

Thankfully he's ridden the storms and going well! Smile

Latest from Hoppo's support crew:

"Sorry everyone he has to stop doctors orders as he has server bronchitis he's been getting a lot worse today nothing is worth your health" Sad 

Well done Chris, great effort! .......next time eh?
