With 10 days to go until we set off from John O'Groats, we're going to start adding daily updates here and to our email subscribers. Although things have been a bit quiet on the news section of our website, that's less because we've not been doing anything and more because we've been a bit busy practising, training and trying to fix up a nationwide tour! Thankfully, with the help of many generous individuals, Great Western Rail and Evans Cycles, we are ready to go and really looking forward to getting going. This flyer has been distributed to all corners of the country and we can't wait to get to these venues.

Here are the results:
So with any worries about fatigue firmly put to bed, we've been enjoying as much World Cup action as we can fit in before we hit the road. This afternoon we got together early for England Belgium and started thinking about World Cup Songs. Baddiel and Barnes - look away now!
