Day 12 – End of the road

Woke to one of the sunniest mornings of the trip. Quite possibly the nicest in this part of Scotlands meteorological history. Knowing that we only had 38 miles remaining added to its sweetness.

We stopped in wick for the obligatory pastry or two and continued along the near flat roads to John O’Groats.

The weather was still clear as we went over the crest of the last hill to see John O’Groats sitting before us. Giving us a nice downhill straight into the visitors parking.

We congratulated some other cyclist  when they arrived. We found out later that they hadnt even started, they were doing JOGLE. Dave was in gloating heaven!

A short stop at Dunnet Head followed.. the official most northerly point of mainland Britain. Then continued to Thurso for celebratory beers and maybe a deep fryed Mars bar or two… phew!!
