PenCarrie MD takes on John O’Groats to Land’s End challenge L


ast month, Tony Lock, PenCarrie’s MD, cycled from John O’Groats to Land’s End, all in aid of charities Stroke Association, Cancer Research UK and MS

After several cycling events were postponed this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Mr Lock decided to take advantage of the light July evenings and embark on this adventure as a personal challenge as well as raising funds for a great cause. Mr Lock started his epic journey on Friday, July 11 at John O’Groats and, five days in, had cycled across the top of Scotland, headed south across the highlands to Alness, further south to Fort William via Loch Ness and Loch Lochy. Mr Lock’s journey saw him cycle over 1,000 miles in 16 days taking in the hills of the Southern Uplands, across the Scottish border to the wild countryside of Northern England, around Manchester, through the rolling countryside of Shropshire and Herefordshire, across the River Severn, around Bristol, over Dartmoor, along the North coast of Cornwall and, finally, to Land’s End.

Mr Lock managed to stop at PenCarrie HQ in Devon on

Wednesday, July 22, where the PenCarrie team waved and shouted encouragement as he passed.
