John Simmons recently cycled from Dungeness to Durness (D2D) for his 60th birthday in support of The Big Issue Foundation.
For John’s 50th, he cycled from Land’s End to John O’Groats (LEJOG). Since 10 years have passed, he decided to do something similar for this milestone as well.
The trip from Dungeness to Durness (all the way to the northwest tip of the mainland at Cape Wrath) took him 14 days (not including rest days), was a total of 907 miles, and had a total ascent of 39,927ft!
John decided this milestone trip would support The Big Issue Foundation because “given the wrong set of circumstances, anyone can end up homeless”. John has exceeded his initial target of £2,000 by raising £2,810 on his JustGiving page so far.
John kept everyone in the loop with daily updates of his adventure and what an adventure it turned out to be!
