Land’s End to John O’Groats: epic journey in memory of Fran

MOST READ

Two cyclists are taking on a gruelling cycle challenge in honour of their friend, Fran Eddolls from Tetbury, who died aged 28 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.

From July 1, Dan Boulton and Mike West are cycling 900 miles from Land’s End to John o’Groats – in just five days – most people complete the route in nine or ten days. 

Their time in the saddle will be particularly poignant as they are riding for Fran, a keen sportsman and charity fundraiser, who planned to do the challenge before he fell ill last year.  

“We’re not professional cyclists, so covering 170 miles per day is going to be tough,” Dan said. “But Fran will be at the back of our minds the whole way, pushing us on.”

The pair want to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charities: Longfield Hospice near Stroud and Anxiety UK.

“Longfield helped me care for Fran at home in his last days and weeks,” said Carina, Fran’s wife. “They were an amazing support for the whole family. I wish Dan and Mike lots of luck. Please donate and support our local hospice.”
