Land’s End to John O’Groats is 874 miles. Tom Hobbins is 182 pounds. He is lazy but ambitious. He decided to get off his arse and do something. Then he played a game of FIFA. Then he asked his flat mate to cycle the length of the country. A week later, that journey began. They peddled, they sang songs, they drank beers, they peddled more, they ate crisps. They grew tired, they argued, they peddled, they fought. They reached a fork in the road.

There are many routes to get to where you’re going. This is Tom’s.
