1,000 miles in 24 hours, Lands End to John O’Groats in one ride, on a £300 bike, WITHOUT using motorways – It’s almost time to start! It’s the 2022 Longest Day Challenge, and today Steve will be heading off for a stopover near to Land’s End tomorrow, the day before the start of the event. All proceeds raised go to Cancer Research UK, which is a cause close to my heart after losing my wife Samantha to Leukaemia. If you can help here is the link to Steve’s donations page.
The Longest Day Up Ride
Longest Day Up is a motorbike challenge to travel from Land’s End to John O’Groats on the longest day of the year between sunrise and sunset. This year the longest day is June 21st. Sunrise at Lands End, Cornwall is 5.13am. Sunset at John O’Groats is 11.56pm (well it is close to the Artic!). That is 18 hours 43 minutes! Bikes must have been bought for no more than £300.

It’s for a REALLY Good Cause
Five-year survival rates for leukaemia have more than tripled in the last 40 years. Despite this progress, around 4,600 people still lose their lives to the disease every year. Almost a third of all cancers diagnosed in children are leukaemia. Your donation can help Cancer Research UK find better treatments and new ways to prevent the disease in adults and children.
