Countdown

Posted by on June 14, 2011

Less then two weeks to go and everything is in full swing! We’ve got most of the mopeds ready and done some speed testing on them – the fastest one we have (remember, they are all 50cc) has a top speed of 45mph but on a test ride we only averaged 20mph because of its poor acceleration, traffic conditions, etc.

The plan is currently to travel up to Inverness on Thursday the 23rd of June, stay overnight and start the ride early on Friday morning, we estimate the journey down to Land’s End will take three or four days, though we’re aiming to get to complete it in three days through sheer force of will.

We’re still looking for help with accommodation en-route, food, petrol, etc and of course, the main reason we’re doing this is to raise money for the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, so cash donations are important too.
