John Bitten from Sitec’s telecoms acquisition department is cycling the famous Lands End to John O’Groats (LEJOG) ride in June this year. The 12-day adventure, setting off on 8th June, takes John and his team mates through the quiet (but hilly) lanes of Cornwall and Devon, over the Avon and Severn bridges, past Tintern Abbey, Shrewsbury and Chester, through Wigan/Warrington, over Shap (east of the Lake District), through Carlisle and into Scotland.
From there, through Ayrshire, over the Ardrossan ferry onto Arran and then the Kintyre peninsula, up the great glen on the Caledonian track, through Lairg and up to the north coast at Betty Hill. A short 50 miles from there to John O’Groats, in total approximately 950 miles!
Whilst they will no doubt be enjoying the adventure and in part, doing it for the challenge, John is also raising money for Cancer Research UK – worthy and pertinent charity to be supporting.
