Noah W: 1000 miles by bike
This Easter, Noah W completed a long distance cycling journey which, since last year, has seen him journey over 1000 miles from Brighton to John O’Groats and Dunnet Head, the most northerly point in mainland Britain.
Noah’s ride started last year, completing successive stages over weekends and then a few extended trips during school holidays. A less direct route was chosen so he could experience some natural highlights and historic towns. He first headed west from Brighton through the South Downs to Winchester, up through the Chilterns to Oxford, further west across the Cotswolds and over Malvern Hills to Worcester, then through the Shropshire Hills to Shrewsbury, up to Stoke-on-Trent, over the Peak District hills to Leeds, York, the North York Moors, Durham, Newcastle upon Tyne, along the Northumberland coast to Berwick-upon-Tweed, sharp left through the Scottish Borders to Galashiels, up to Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Perth and over the Cairngorms to Inverness, and from there along the Highlands east coast to Lands End and Dunnet Head.
Clearly still keen, Noah’s next target is Lands End to Oxford, planned for this August. From there, who knows?!
