Andrew and Mr Lunn pedal power their way from Land’s End to John O’Groats
Congratulations to Mr Lunn and his son Andrew, who successfully completed the Land’s End to John O’Groats cycling challenge during the summer holidays. Covering over 900and miles, they cycled in all weathers, from sunshine and showers to thunder and lightning!
Andrew, in Year 10, said: “We really enjoyed this route, which tested us both mentally and physically. However, the aches and pains were worth it for the wonderful scenery we enjoyed along the way, as well as the great sense of achievement we felt when we arrived at John O’Groats.”
Andrew is no stranger to epic cycling adventures. You may recall the tremendous charity cycling challenge he did in 2019, together with his brother James, when they cycled 300 miles from Richmond in Surrey back home to Richmond in North Yorkshire. Their friend, Marcus Weston was unable to join them on the route but set his own challenge, learning to ride a specially adapted trike to cycle 30 miles, one per day, around the school playground. Together, the three kind-hearted community champions raised £4,800 for the Butterwick Hospice and were proud to be honoured for their efforts with the British Citizen Youth Award.
