Personal Reflections

I personally don’t think that any trip that The Bike Bus has been involved in prior to this Lejog has given me more motivation, encouragement, inspiration and self-belief. It sounds odd for me (the support van driver) to be saying that I have taken some great lessons away from a Land’s End to John O’Groats trip.  But I genuinely have; the dedication, humour, immense effort and hours of organising that have been involved from the cycling team have blown my mind.  It’s a huge challenge, and along with cycling 70 – 80 miles per day, each cyclist has under gone their own daily mental battles.

There were occasions on the trip that my co-pilot (Chris G) and I have marvelled at the team’s stamina, the sheer grit & determination of everyone.

We were truly in awe of the cyclists and have a lot of respect for anyone that has the courage to undertake a challenge like this, to complete this challenge with health issues as some of these riders have is amazing.
