The 1,200 mile ride took 18 days to complete, covering the whole length of the island of Great Britain, from Land′s End, the most westernly point of England, to John o′ Groats, the most northerly point in Scotland.

Alan was motivated to ride by his wife, Jan, a recent cancer survivor. His team met and exceeded their £10,000 goal.

“I am immensely proud of our achievement and would like to again thank Aventure for their support,” said Alan. “The part of the ride I loved most was the challenge of the hills, not so easy at my age,” he added.
