We've done it! It's hard to sum up the array of emotions we have experienced not only during the last two weeks but also during the months of training. Around 3.30pm today there were two proud and tearful people cycling into John O Groats. We also know that there were two even more proud people, Ruby and John, looking down on us.
It has been an amazing and unforgettable journey. We have seen, felt and experienced sights and pains that we never knew existed. It has been a challenge beyond anything we have ever done before. It has been journey like no other. But most of all, with your help, it has been a way to generate funds to Cancer Research UK. With your help we might just have saved another life - how great is that.

Hills - of course, there was still no let up

Rain - yes, but no need to feel sorry for us as the shower came whilst we were inside having lunch! How blessed have we been?!
Lost pregnant sheep - 1, we had to stop and turn our hand to sheep herding!

It's sad to be writing what is now surely one of the final postings for this blog. We will however keep you updated with final fundraising figures once all donations have been received. Thank you.
