Between 24th August and 3rd September 2012 Anthony Barron took part in the Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle ride to raise money for CRY.
“All returned from Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle. 9 days of over 100 miles a day on average with plenty of hills. Tough work, with only 2 days that didn’t rain at some point. By the time we arrived in Scotland it was also quite cold and usually overcast which meant it was a much tougher psychological task. Highlights include cycling over Dartmoor on the nicest day with very steep, long climbs in places but great views which unfortunately my photos don’t do justice; cycling 2 miles over the Severn Bridge with the wind howling; the climb up Shap Fell in Cumbria and the lovely descent; Glencoe in the Highlands on Scotland; and of course coming over the hill at the end and seeing the end in sight, a mile downhill!”
