John O'Groats to Land's End - 1989       

August 1st - Thurso to John O'Groats (23 miles)   Next  
We left the station at about 3pm and, although we had a tailwind, decided against the detour to take in Dunnet Head. 
We didn't think we had the time for the extra ten miles, so instead we thoroughly explored all the cafes and shops at 
John O'Groats. Chatted to Nick and Miles, who had just ridden up from Land's End in nine days! (Nick couldn't work out
why he felt so knackered.) It got cold so, for the last three miles to the youth hostel, it was tracksuit and gloves.
Dunnet? 'Fraid not!
