From John O’Groats to Land’s End
Back in May of this year, Woodlore received an e-mail from customer Jason Clark:
Dear Woodlore Team,
My name is Jason and I am currently in the process of planning a cycle ride from John O’Groats to Lands End, and will be carrying my camping kit on my bike and wild camping for the whole 24 days of the trip. The difference with my trip is I broke my leg last June and currently have a cage around my left lower leg; as far as I’m aware, I will be the first person wearing a frame to do this journey.
I’m raising money for Help for Heroes, as a lot of the guys can be inflicted with similar injuries to what I have.
Well, the months have gone by, and last week the following e-mail made it to us:
Well, I completed my trip - 1,015 miles in 21 days, which was a few days faster than planned.
From the first day in Scotland, I set off and was faced with high winds and rain but I was determined it would not spoil my adventure. As the days went on, the wet weather and head winds continued and the trip very much turned into an exercise in keeping my equipment dry and in working order which, when you have a frame on your lower leg, is a test of determination and organisation if nothing else!
Overall the trip was an incredible experience where I learnt new ways of overcoming difficult situations and also just how deep I could dig mentally and physically when it was called for.
Woodlore would like to congratulate Jason on what was surely an extremely testing journey, and for completing it in such a great time for a very worthy cause.
