About

It's horrible watching someone suffering from shortness of breath. 
Our friend Steve Jones has Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis  (IPF) and we watched his health deteriorating. Very fortunately he received a lung transplant last year in the nick of time. 
IPF kills 5000 people a year in the U.K. This is roughly the same number that die from leukaemia but few people have ever heard of IPF and most people die within three years of diagnosis.  The charity Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis supports people suffering from the disease, raises awareness of the disease and supports research. A small charity, it has local connections including Papworth Hospital, and punches above its weight. 
We are covering all of the costs of the ride, so everything we raise will be donated to our selected charities. 
Joe and I are sponsoring this charity, but we are fundraising as part of a team and invite you to support whichever of our charities most appeals to you. https://www.consertum.com/wordpress/sponsor/

Event details

John O'Groats to Land's End

On the 6th Sept we (Rowland, Joe, Derek, Mike and Terry) five Cambridge friends are cycling from John O'Groats to Land's End. Joe is a doctor and there are several engineers so hopefully we can deal with mishaps to bodies or bikes. We’ve planned an interesting route which avoids most main roads and large cities. We are unassisted - that is we have no support vehicle and will carry all of our kit ourselves. It’s about 1,150 miles over 19 days. (Rowland is doing 700 miles out of the total because he's leaving the group for a number of days for a family event and rejoining in Bristol.) We shall reach Land's End on 24 September.
You can follow our progress at our website: www.camjoglers.co.uk
