In September 2020 I did a solo unsupported bike packing trip from Leicestershire to John O’ Groats. 650 miles whilst carrying kit, wild camping and solo navigating and cycling up the country!
Then, onto the Orkney Isles.
The best thing I have done on a bike… nothing beats the freedom of the open road. Cant wait for the next trip.
Here is the video I made on the road….
