In September 2018, Alex became the oldest to cycle from Lands End to John o'Groats
Alex Menarry, at 85, became the oldest person to cycle from Lands End to John o’Groats (LEJoG), according to Guinness World Records. The attempt took place between the 8th and 25th of September 2018, supported by CTC Cycling Holidays, taking 17 days in the saddle.
Alex cycled LEJoG in 2016, and realised during the trip that there probably were not many people of his age that had completed the route. Upon completing the route, he looked up the Guinness World Record for Oldest to Cycle LEJoG and realised he was indeed older than the current record holder. Unfortunately he did not collect the right evidence during his cycle to apply for the record, so he simply said "Well I'll have to do it again!"
