2002 – John O’Groats to Land’s End on a Triplet
In 2002 Alastair Edmonds, Richard Kelly and Alex Wainwright, all C1 1997 – 2002, cycled from John O’Groats to Land’s End on a triplet to rase funds for The Brain Tumour Charity, in memory of Hugo McDermott (B1 1998 -2001) who died of a brain tumour in 2001.
Peter Mynors (C3 1954 – 59) lent them the triplet and told us ‘the triplet frame has been dated at about 1908 and was used for a 4000 km expedition to Greece in 1962. Before the 2002 ride it was fitted with new wheels and transmission. Alex, Alastair and Richard completed the ride in 14 days, raising £10,000.
