Day 20 – Geoff is at John o’Groats!!!

John o’Groats

Geoff caught us all by surprise today. Reported in to Liz to say he was up late (for him) and had had breakfast. Next news was late afternoon to say he had just 16 miles to go!

Finally arrived at John o’Groats at 6:30 this evening after a 97 mile last day! All hotels and B &B’s full for the weekend so he is spending tonight and tomorrow night at the campsite and having a well earned rest day on Saturday before turning for home. Well done Geoff from the TA web team and all your friends.

Geoff’s full report will follow together with pictures when he finally gets a phone signal again.

    Great stuff Geoff. What a great Ambassador for TA you are. Is it true that it’s all down hill to Oxford?

    Hi Batty, sorry “El Presidente”!, Brilliant, a real “Product Testing” ride, testimony of fitness of both man & machine.
    I foresee a very long after dinner speech coming on from the Tiddington Trundler?

    • Boy, that looks like fun! Cant go wrong with velotouring, esp. camping! I say ‘velo’ because still trying to get myself a tricycle here in trike-poor americaland… And all that beautiful UK landscape and history – perfect!

      Hey, who’s this Brian in Rogers City (above comment)? Good cycling country there, RC. A Tricyclist in Michigan?!

      /robert from Michigan, in exile a little while longer in Alaska – and hopefully on 3 wheels .. eventually!
