They Did It!!!

One of the toughest cycling challenges the UK has to offer, known as "The Jogle" cycling the full length of Britain

The Jogle is known as one of the most epic and toughest of cycling challenges here in the UK. As many of you may or may not know but Broadway Lodge CEO Brian Dudley recently took on this ultimate cycling challenge to raise awareness of the need for public funding to support public beds so desperately needed within the community.

Brian was joined by two other riders, friend Paul and his son Bradley. Sadly day 4 of the ride Bradley had an accident while riding through Scotland having covered almost 90 miles each day, he returned to Weston-super-Mare for Brian and Paul to continue their ride.

The first 4-5 days were heavy rain, strong winds and it seemed like the world was against them BUT they both persevered and pushed through covering over 85-90 miles per day. Crossing the Scottish border and heading South through the Cities, Lake District and down towards Wales. The weather finally began to improve and then a light breeze behind them instead of an awful slowing head wind.

It may have felt easier to have stopped when reaching Somerset cycling across the Severn Bridge leaving Wales but both Brian and Paul were so determined to continue and not stop they simply carried on cycling heading towards their final destination that had been getting closer each day. 700 miles, 800 miles, suddenly Lands End was almost in sight, but then came the monstrous hills of Devon and Cornwall, thousands of feet to ascend but after climbing 45,000ft a huge 7,000ft ascent in a day looked much easier.

The inspiring guys continued through to Lands End where they were met by friends and family who had monitored their progress over the past 11 days and the celebrations began after a memorable journey. Broadway Lodge want to thank everyone who supported this challenge, our corporate sponsors and facebook, twitter messages that kept the guys going. Also to Mike the support driver who drove the full length of Britain and back again making sure the guys were well fed and watered.
