Our Unit & Quay Manager Kieran set off on a charity cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End on Tuesday 17th May. He’ll be cycling unsupported for 12 days, sleeping outdoors each night with just a bivouac to protect him from the elements. Cycling over 100 miles each day, he’s taken on this mammoth challenge to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, following the death of his close friend’s grandmother.
He’s hoping to raise £2,000 and his fundraising is going really well both on and offline. If you’d like to sponsor Kieran for this epic challenge you can donate online here.
Four days into the journey, Kieran’s made it safely from John O’Groats to Edinburgh, having spent a night camping on the shore of Loch Ness and having travelled through the stunning scenery of the Cairngorms National Park. So far he’s experienced a whole range of weather, including 24 hours of solid rain, where a kind pub landlord let him use a room to dry out all his belongings while he stopped for a meal! He’s also had some brilliant sunshine on Day 4 though, making for a much more pleasant day’s cycling.
We’ll post another update here once he’s finished the challenge, with more photos and highlights of the journey.
