Mark Taylor (pictured), has been a Graphic Designer at QuickPrint for 6 years. He has teamed up with Andrew Green (an old school friend of 30 years), to pedal the Classic Challenge, cycling from John O’ Groats to Land’s End in Only 8 Days! – 866 miles of roads passable by cyclists, the furthest possible distance across the British Isles, End to End.
This classic challenge is on many a cyclist’s ‘to do’ or ‘bucket’ list. Covering more than 12 counties, through stunning scenery, one of the toughest cycling achievements, from the Northernmost point of the UK through the Lochs of Great Glen, along the stunning mountains of the Lake District, through the rolling hills of Dartmoor to the rocky cliffs and pounding seas of Land’s End.
John O’ Groats to Land’s End (also called ‘JOG-LE’ or ‘End to End’), will test you to your limit, but it is the most fabulous way to see the UK and one of the biggest achievements you are ever likely to accomplish on a bicycle!
Their training regime since February this year has been gruelling, covering over 3,000 miles and countless hours on two wheels – pedalling every single one of them.
Mark and Andrew are funding the entire journey and donating all money raised to “Children’s Hospice South West” – Donate to this worthy cause on the Just Giving website at www.justgiving.com/MarkandAndrew2016.
