John o'Groats to Thurso; Cycled today: 20.03 miles; Total ascent today: 179m.
The long journey from Taunton finally ended with our arrival at John o'Groats in the mid-afternoon pouring rain. However, once the obligatory photo beside the JOG sign had been taken and we had signed the visitors book in the shop, we set off in dry but grey conditions. This was very much a quick stint, along a relatively flat section of NCN route 1, but certainly did wonders to get the journey out of our legs before the challenges of the coast road tomorrow.
