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.’
After getting the cycling bug he is planning future trips and one to Barcelona has been mooted! So watch this space for the next adventure of ‘Owen and his red tandem’. All of the team at PhysioDirect would like to congratulate him on his amazing achievement!
