A chance meeting at work first sparked the idea to achieve a life’s ambition, namely to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats and raise money for a small disability support group. The planning and training was the simple bit but did he have sufficient mental strength to cope with being on the road for 12 days alone?

The book is a great resource for those looking to make this classic End to End journey, lots of tips and hints to make the experience enjoyable and achievable.

A comprehensive approach to training allowed Phil to work out a number of issues including:

  • How to avoid numb hands


  • Effective approaches to endurance cycling


  • The wonders of using Chamois Cream


  • Tool selection versus weight disadvantage


  • Understanding your bike so you can fix problems if they occur


  • The pros and cons of using different types of kit


  • Coping with the mileage and also the mental side of things


The book recounts his journey and the surprising encounters along the way; it also contains anecdotes from Phil’s past and describes his fundraising attempts prior to the ride.

As the mileage mounts, there is a developing theme of people’s willingness to help and contribute. Social media provides essential support from his family and friends adding a humorous element, but is all of this enough to counter the low points of a very physical and sometimes lonely challenge.

One bike, one tent, 1,000 miles – what could go wrong?
