Biking England Lands End John O Groats Uncategorized

Virtually inspired

Written by admin

Having rejected the glossy promises of family adventure tour operators in favour of touring at home, I got jittery about us getting bored just cycling in the UK. Somehow the journey alone wasn’t enough; it needed something more, in case riding end to end with three kids didn’t hold our interest. So I turned to the net for inspiration.

Friday afternoon and amongst the spam in my mailbox was the CTC’s weekly newsnet, proudly announcing the launch of the CTC CycleHero climate change campaign. Take a look at it here.

It’s a simple message; use your bike more and you can help save the planet. It’s simple, practical, do-able, planet saving and something we can all relate to. And, according to the website, it’s sexy too. In which case who wouldn’t want to be a cycle hero? Or meet one?

So that’s the six week holidays planned; we’re going to cycle Lands End to John O Groats in search of everyday cycle heros. Ordinary people doing their bit to save the planet by bike. That should spice things up a bit.

Now then I wonder which way we should go?
