Well done Jochta! I’m mightily impressed!

nice one guys

Impressive work! I’ve really enjoyed following your progess on the twit-blog-map

Well done guys. Bet you are well happy.

Fantastic achievement, you two. You deserve to celebrate tonight. I’ve just googled ‘Wick restaurants’ and it has quite a few. I’d lay odds that tonight will see you inside one of them stuffing your faces like there’s no tomorrow. And why not. Well done again.


Thanks everyone. Both feel ecstatic. Huge grins on faces. Just breezed the 20 miles to Wick. Having a cuppa then putting the tents up one more time. Maybe a drink or two this evening…

Its all smoke, mirrors and a blue screen. You’ve been at home all this time wink

Its like the lunar landing all over again.

p.s. well done

Well done Daddy. Was that hard work? Did you have fun? I really am so excited to see you tomorrow. I really want you back right now. You are brilliant at cycling and you are fab. Lots of Love from Amy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooooo

Hello Daddy I love you lots and lots.

Good grief, you actually did it.  Congrats. You’ll be hooked now.  Did Andrew actually have any spokes in his wheel at the end?

hey, well done! Great ride and great LEJOG reportage too!!

Well-done guys.

Respect Mate, Andy N and I were on the bike trail to Didcot yesterday and this morning in an act of unity with you.
I ran over a crow and killed it…that’s a first.

Well done chaps, hope the saddle sores aren’t too bad. By our estimates, given a following wind, you should be back home in about 10 days if you set off now. Great achievement!

wow! Well done! You must be on cloud nine, reality is going to be a bit of a bump!!
What next….......?

What next….......?

Well, clearly, it’s an around the world jaunt next. Don’t want to let them get slack.

Well Done to both of you. It has been fun reading the comments and following your adventure.

Do you have plans to do another event? Maybe another cycle, or even bungee jumping, mountain climbing or throwing yourself from a plane? hehe..

Is this the start of something, or will you rest up now totally proud of what you have achieved?

Well done again guys, excellent work wink

When I initially read that I thought he’d said he’d run over a cow and killed it. Now that would have been a first.
