John’s Story

“Riding the triangle”

My name is John Wilson and after what has seemed like a never-ending period of lockdown and social isolation due the pandemic, the opportunity to take to the open roads of GB on a motorcycle is too good to miss.

On Monday 19th July, I will be setting out from the South Forelands lighthouse near Dover, Kent (the most south-easterly point in Britain) on my trusty Triumph Bonneville T120, to ride to Lands End (the most westerly point on mainland Britain), taking in the Lizard Point (the most southerly point on mainland Britain). The next day I will head for John O’Groats

I plan to arrive in John O’Groats, planning on Wednesday, after an overnight stay in Windermere. On Thursday I will head back to Dover, with another overnight stop near Middlesborough, then back to the starting point with a small diversion via Lowestoft, (the most easterly point on the mainland). The entire distance is more than 2,000 miles, hence the plan to complete the ride in 5 days. Just to make it a little more challenging, I intend to do the entire journey without using any motorways. I believe this will establish a new record for this route, adding it to the list of “Iron Butt UK” runs.

CREATING AN AWARENESS OF THESE 3 CHARITIES

I am looking for sponsorship for three charities which are very close to my heart and for which I hope to raise as much money as possible. These are ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency), the Sickle Cell Society and Mental Health Motorbike. All three do excellent work in helping some of the most vulnerable people in the UK and the rest of the world. You can find out more from their websites below

Message of support from Mental Health Motorbike

We would like to wish John all the very best for his adventure, ride safe and hopefully we will catch you en-route.

Please do check out the work of the 3 charities and if possible support one of more of them, all of them are doing life saving work in challenging circumstances.

We will try to keep you updated with John’s progress and get him to send a few links along the way for social media.
