The Intrepid Inverness Spinners cross the Scottish Border.

As you know I've been following the progress of wee sister Honor who, with the Inverness Spinners, is cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society Scotland and Inverness SNAP. 

At 9:57 am this morning, they crossed the Scottish Border. I'm amazed that they have managed to cover over 450 miles in just over 5 days. 

They head to Kilmarnock tonight, Crianlarich tomorrow, Fort Augustus on Friday, Brora on Saturday and then, finally, John O'Groats, after they've tackled the evil Berriedale Braes. They look a lot less evil than they are on this video, available here on You Tube.


If you feel such a hardcore climb - and remember they're coming the other way, up to that hairpin, after cycling 850 miles is impressive, you might want to consider sponsoring them here or wishing them well on their Facebook page here

And, by way of it being a small world, I've found out through talking to my friend, a LEJOG veteran, that his wife knows someone in the team, Caroline Keith.
