Nick Demspey: LEJOG
Cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats is something Nick has wanted to do for a long time.
With the RS:X World Championships just 3 months away, now is the perfect time to get some serious miles on the bike.
He starts the ride this Sunday 7th June from Lands End, up hill all the way to John O'Groats. It's about 900 miles and he is planing on doing it in 9 consecutive days which equates to about 8 hours a day on the bike. Sarah is coming along in the support vehicle visiting several schools along the way sharing her Olympic stories and hopefully inspiring young children to live their dreams.
The cycling is going to be tough but the thing he is most worried about is Sarah going into labour on route!! With the baby due on the 27th June he really could do with not having to deliver the baby himself! having said that, he is a bit of pro when it comes to DIY but this would test his skills just a step too far!!
This is the first time in his Olympic career that he has had the opportunity to give something back so he has chosen to ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation. Please help him to make a difference by making a donation. 100% of the money raised will go to the British Heart Foundation.
