Simon Rides Across Britain

Simon Wilcox set out on the first stage of his ride across Britain, from John O’Groats to Land’s End, in June 2013.

The mammoth 960-mile will take nine days and Simon will be covering more than 100 miles each day and climbing 15,000 metres over the course of the ride, or more than eleven times up and down Ben Nevis!

Thankfully he won’t be alone as more than 700 riders will be accompanying him, along with 200 support staff.

Find out more on the Ride Across Britain website and keep an eye on the @DCHQ Twitter feed to check Simon’s progress.
