On May 13th 2017 I began my biggest journey yet. Climbing to the highest point of all 100 UK counties in 72 days, with 48 ceremonial counties in England, 13 historic counties in Wales, 6 in Northern Ireland and 33 historic counties in Scotland. Over 4,782 miles on bike, 484 on foot, 8km by kayak and 383,871ft of height gain.
#ClimbTheUK will involve cycling between the highest points before walking up them… even kayaking across to the Isle of Wight before mountain biking to its’ highest point! I will be carrying my own supplies in panniers and entirely human-powered barring any essential ferries. I want as many people as possible to come and join me on their home counties’ highest point, promoting the opportunities for adventure on home soil.
