Land’s End to John O’Groats – in just 5 Days!
June 10, 2016
From 26-31 May 2016 Idai Makaya attempted to set a new record for riding across Britain on an ElliptiGO bike (from Land’s End to John o’Groats). The record at the time was 6 days and 10 hours, set in 2014 by Glen Burmeister.
A written report of the adventure, which Idai completed in a time of 120 hours and 4 minutes (or 5 days and 4 minutes) can be read on this link and a full-length documentary film outlining how he prepared for the challenge and how the record-breaking ride shaped up can be viewed here.
The official confirmation of the record can be seen on the Guinness World Records Website.
