As someone with a couple of marathons & half marathons under my belt, and currently training for another half, I know what takes to complete an endurance event. I know the physical pain, mental strength and sheer stubbornness that it takes to get you across the line. But my friend Phil Cox's achievements literally left me gasping in awe. Last summer he cycled from Lands End to John O'Groats, on his own, with no back up in TWELVE days. ( That's 1,000 miles by the way, think about it.)
Point North and Pedal is Phil's account of that journey. And it's a great read, instantly recognisable to anyone idiotic to take on one of life's more extreme challenges, and soaked in his characteristic wit and sarcasm. Not only that, but being one of life's total good blokes, he's raising money for Cri du Chat Syndrome - so you by buying his book you get to support a great charity as well.
Seriously committed and a serious good read. Get your copy today!
