This summer I will be taking my ER6n from Lands End to John O’Groats, a distance of over 870 miles, in less than 24 hours (not as in riding time but as in an actual day). The biggest distance I’ve travelled so far in a day is about 250 miles so this is a big personal challenge and will see if the modifications I’ve made to the ER6 help with long distance comfort (Puig Rafale screen, Oxford Hot Grips, Bagster seat, Acerbis handguards). I am planning on doing this on 21st June 2014 and completing the ride in about 18-20 hours allowing for fuel, food and fatigue stops. However the key attraction here is I want to raise some cash for Teenage Cancer Trust while I do it so have set up a JustGiving page.
Teenage Cancer Trust are a great charity and work with cancer patients between the ages of 13-24 to help with their quality of life. I have noticed that many visitors to this page come from around the world but that doesn’t mean you can’t contribute. I am looking to raise a modest £200 but it doesn’t have to stop there. If you can spare a little it all helps. Visit www.justgiving.com/RebelRide for more information and my End 2 End 2014 blog for updates.
