In September 2010 Alan Bond and 
Chris Dodd cycled from Land's End, which is situated at the southern tip of Cornwall, to John o'Groats, which is located at the far north-eastern tip of Scotland to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.  

They started the ride, which they estimated would be a staggering 973 miles in length, on Saturday 11th of September and they completed the ride on schedule, arriving in John O'Groats, on Friday the 25th September 2010.  The route took them up through Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, northwards through the west of England and then into Scotland and towards Glasgow.  They then cycled up the west coast of Scotland to Fort William, at which point they crossed over to the east coast, for the final leg of the ride to John o' Groats.

This web-site was produced so as to provide Alan and Chris's friends and family with more information on the ride and also provides details on how to sponsor them, if you have not done so already.  It also includes some information about the ride in general.  

During the ride Alan and Chris sent back daily reports of their progress and numerous photos, which were uploaded onto the web-site on a daily basis.  These are on the 'News' Page, which can be accessed by clicking the 'News' link at the top right of this page.

Raising money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association

The main aim of their bike ride (apart from enjoying the challenge) was to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

To date they have had an amazing response, with donations already exceeding their original target of £1000.00.
