Physiodirect Owner Realises Cycling Dream!

Physiodirect Owner Realises Cycling Dream!

Owen Robinson, Managing Director of PhysioDirect, completed a cycle from John O’Groats to Lands’ End (known as JOGLE) in July 2012 over a period of 10 days, covering 975 miles in total. What is all the more amazing was that it was done on a tandem! Owen and his team of ten riders raised £7,500 for research into meningitis in the process, an accomplishment he should be very proud of. When asked to comment about his epic ride he said:

‘It was one of the best experiences of my life, but I never want to see the hills of Devon again. Dartmoor tested me to the limit, but lucky this South African did not break.’
