And so it begins!

He’s off! Bike packed, leaving Darlington for the trip South to the starting point! 

The LEJOG trip will start on Saturday, with a cycle from the first hotel in Redruth to Land's End and back to Redruth. Tomorrow however, Alex is going to cycle from Lizard Point (the furthest South point on mainland UK) to Lands End, and he will also be taking in Dunnet head (the furthest north point of mainland UK) when he is on the North coast. 

Alex will be blogging as and when he can over the next few weeks, but the focus will be on getting the job done, so you’ll see blogs from family and friends about how he’s getting on as well. 

All the the best to Alex/Dad/Gramps/Great Gramps!
