My Walking CHALLENGE IN 2018
I am planning to walk approximately 1,000 miles through Great Britain, starting on Sunday 29 April 2018 at Land’s End (Cornwall) and finishing at John O’Groats (Scotland) sometime around 22 June, taking approximately 7 weeks to complete this challenge. Click on my planned Route for more details.Route
Accompanied and guided by friends and colleagues, , members of the public, voluntary sector representatives and patient support groups, researchers, eye health and health care professionals, I will be visiting eye clinics, eye hospitals and community centres along the route, sharing experiences with patients and practitioners and promoting the wonders of eye research!
I tandem cycled from John O’Groats to Land’s End in 2010 and so I now want to turn around and do it all again, getting up even more close and personal with the different terrains, environments and communities throughout the country and encourage others, sighted and less sighted to join me on this adventure. My training regime starts during December, so feel free to visit my blog and keep pace with me!
