The RIPPLE Rockets did it!

The RIPPLE Rockets Challenge – Land’s End to John O’Groats

Their dream has become a reality. They’ve completed the ultimate cycling challenge and pedalled the furthest possible distance across the full length of the British mainland from bottom left to top right.

 They made it to the finish line! They made it to the finish line!

Geoff, Nikki, Natasha, Rebecca and Ilka started off from Lands End and cycled through Cornwall, skirting Dartmoor, dipped across into Wales, edging around the Lake District into Scotland where they were joined by past volunteer Kieran in Edinburgh. They then cycled into the Highlands, to the North Coast and on to John O’Groats. They witnessed some of the most stunning and remote countryside in the British Isles.

Cycling 1000 miles demanded stamina, fitness, a determined attitude and plenty of camaraderie! They gave it all they had. Cycling through the pain, they still managed to smile which is reflected in the photos. They’re all superhumans doing this to raise money for our projects in Malawi.

It’s been a legendary trip for the team. Well done Rockets!
