Cycling challenges - Two brothers. Two weeks. One thousand miles.

On Wednesday March 27th, Bill and Jim Cunningham will begin their epic cycle from Land's End to John O' Groats as a sponsored project for the MS Trust.

Jim was talked into it over a pint on Boxing Day. "At first I thought my brother's idea was mad, but it is a great challenge that I could not turn down. However, it is still a mad idea!"

Bill acknowledges the cycle will be a challenge, particularly since the trip is unsupported. His greatest worry is strong winds sapping their strength.

They are already making headway with fundraising, however, having raised £1,400 for the MS Trust already - before they've even loaded their panniers!

If you'd like to support their venture, please email Hannah at the MS Trust or have a look at their website at And keep an eye on their site for progress reports along the route!
