Welcome to New Members

David Jones of Bristol completed the journey by motorcycle on 14 June. He drove from 4am to 10pm!

Jamie Methuen of Monmouthshire also drove by motorcycle: from John O’Groats to Land’s End via the four most extreme points.

John Greer of Peterborough walked from Land’s End to John O’Groats:
It was an ambition for many years, and two years in the planning since finishing work. 99% went according to plan. Low points were during the early weeks: constant rain, deep mud, and boggy, flooded marshes. High points were all the friendly, helpful, generous, supportive people I met along the way while I was carrying a 22kg pack. I lost 25lbs in weight. I had the best weather in Scotland for most of June.
Geoff and Lawrie Mason of the Isle of Wight drove a Land Rover:
This journey was to mark my 50th birthday and my son's 18th birthday. We did it because we wanted to, in an old Land Rover, just to prove that it could do it. We drove via A-roads only, because it added a further challenge. A low point was the dismal weather on the west coast of Scotland, and the high points were all the funny, great and inspiring people and places we saw on the way.
Welcome to all our new members. We would love to read more about your journeys, and please send us any photographs you would like to share. 

Carolyn Dixon of Oxford is a new Associate Member. She will be travelling by train or bus along with her son Caspar Dixon, who is cycling the Deloitte Ride Across Britain from 6th—14th September 2014. He turned 40 this year and thought it a good way to mark his birthday. Caspar lives in Singapore, and his ride will raise money for ShelterBox. Welcome to the Association, Carolyn, and good luck with your journey!

Have any of our members previously taken part in this challenge?
