A big thanks to Phil Cox who has donated the profits of sales of his book, Point North and Pedal, to us.

A fascinating read, this book tells the story of Phil achieving his life ambition - a solo cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats - and is well worth a read.

The book is a great resource for those looking to make this classic End to End journey, lots of tips and hints to make the experience enjoyable and achievable.

A comprehensive approach to training allowed Phil to work out a number of issues including:

The book recounts his journey and the surprising encounters along the way; it also contains anecdotes from Phil’s past and describes his fundraising attempts prior to the ride.
