The Ride - Day 12 (20th May '06)
Well we did it! No one ever said that it would be easy and it wasn't. Riding a bike for five or six hours a day and crossing Dartmoor, the Lake District and the hills and mountains of Scotland is real biking. It is fair to say that your arse and your saddle get to know one another pretty well by the finish!
Today, we stopped briefly for a coffee in Thurso and then pushed on to John O' Groats. On arrival we gathered in the Seaview Hotel Bar for a wee dram. When all had arrived we cycled the short stretch to the finish as a group. Champagne and photos then a quick lunch and in to the mini bus for the 114 mile drive back to Inverness. All going out for a celebration meal tonight.
