About 10,000 people make the trip from Land's End to John o'Groats every year, including many cyclists.
My trip wasn't the fastest, the most direct, the most funds raised, the only solo cyclist of 2009, but it was my trip.
Not satisfied with a 'standard' trip from Land's End to John o'Groats I pick off six of the eight compass points on my 1,300 trip from Cornwall to the tip of Scotland and beyond.
I kept a blog with photos as I travelled and many people were kind enough to donate to charity and post their support on the blog.
This book is the story of my trip.
