As we only had 28m to cycle to John O Groats some of us decided to go to Dunnet Head which is the most northern point of the British mainland.
The wind was coming from the west and this made our short bike journey even easier.The 4 mile detour to Dunnet head however was into (side)wind and mostly uphill.
We all went in one big peloton down the road to the finish line and there it finally was, the finish line and the white post.
We all went under the DA banner across the finish line and everybody gathered around the post cheering and clapping.The air was filled with joy and happiness and some of us shed 1 or 2 tears.
After personal and group photos were taken Phillip and I cycled to the edge of town to take a few photos at the John O Groats road sign.
We changed into some more comfortable clothing and waited in the local coffee shop for the bus to arrive which was going to take us back to Inverness.
After a 3hr bus ride we arrived at our Hotel in Inverness and Phillip and I spent the afternoon cleaning and wrapping up our bikes. A good friend of Phillip happened to be in Inverness with his campervan and he would take our bikes to Lutterworth where he lives.
And so came an end to my LEJOG which has been an amazing and memorable journey and exceeded all my expectations. And for anybody who has the chance to do LEJOG I would say go and do it and raise some mony for a charity as the whole journey is a one in a lifetime experience which one will never forget and cherish forever.
