Knobber Rides Out

Our HM Knobber is bravely taking on this 980 mile, Lands End to John O'Groats cycling challenge. 9 days in the saddle, Knobber is raising funds for Mind BLMK.

Please support him by donating here.

Progress update:
Saturday - Lands End to Oakhampton 105 miles
Completed: 105 miles; Left to go: 875 miles
Sunday - Oakhampton to Bath 110 miles
Completed: 215 miles; Left to go: 765 miles
Monday - Bath to Ludlow 101 miles
Completed 316 miles; Left to go: 664 miles
Tuesday - Ludlow to Haydock 107 miles
Completed 423 miles; Left to go: 557 miles
Wednesday - Haydock to Carlisle 116 miles
Completed 539 miles; Left to go: 441 miles

On Thursday, during the Carlisle to Edinburgh leg, Knobber had to withdraw from the Challenge after being involved in an on-road incident which resulted in him being knocked off his bike by another cyclist. He is OK, but very battered and bruised. There was some concern about the extent of his injuries, but thankfully there are no broken bones or worse. He will be sore for some time and when Capt F spoke to him he was very disappointed and in some pain.

We all wish him a speedy recovery.
