Team story

<p>Dear Friends,&nbsp;</p> <p>In less than 48 hours&nbsp;we are about to embark on our world record attempt &ndash; to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats (South to North of Britain) on a tandem, a gruelling uphill struggle of 850 miles non-stop/no sleep.&nbsp; To break the world record (which has stood for 45 years) we need to complete our challenge in less than 50 hours and 14 minutes.&nbsp; We would like to link our challenge to a good cause and as such we would like to raise money for the Headway brain injury association.&nbsp; Without their support James would not be undertaking this event.&nbsp;</p> <p>Their support of not only&nbsp;James, but also his family was invaluable in understanding and dealing with both the obvious and subtle effects of a brain injury. &nbsp;Headway helps so many people who've suffered a brain injury and their families to cope, understand and rebuild their lives together.&nbsp;</p> <p>We have had very kind sponsors to get us on the road and our thanks and gratitude goes to Matrix Fitness, Brother Printers, BP, BMW, Project 7 Racing, Dolan Bikes and Adidas which we thank for their support - without them this would only be a dream and not a reality.&nbsp; Also many thanks to Justin King (CEO Sainsbury) for signing off a midnight supermarket raid so we can stock up on provisions!!</p> <p>We welcome all sponsorship which raises money for a very valuable charity that helps rebuild many people&rsquo;s lives.&nbsp; If we ride in pain for 50 hours (hopefully less) I am sure you can help us by pledging a couple of pounds &hellip;.every penny counts.&nbsp;</p> <p>For those interested in following our progress then please log onto Map my tracks for real time GPS tracking; <a href="http://rocket2.mapmytracks.com">http://rocket2.mapmytracks.com</a>.&nbsp; We are currently scheduled to depart Lands End at 3am on Saturday 1st October.</p> <p>We very much appreciate any support you are able to give.</p> <p>James &amp; Jerone</p>

Jerone, I take my hat off to the both of you for a such an epic challenge. As a cyclist myself (although far from your level!) I can only imagine the pain of such a challenge, so a great effort and Graham & I wish you all the best.

Respect to the cyclists and especially the support team- I cant imagine anyone previously has ever persuaded James to stop anything.
