End to end : the Land's End to John o'Groats cycling record : a story of obsession, hallucination and happiness

Jones, Paul (Cyclist)2021
Books
The End to End record is the longest place-to-place cycling record in Britain. It is a daunting 842 miles and for the men and women who attempt to break the record, there can be no second place, only the binary outcome of total success or failure. Paul Jones decided to ride from Land's End to John o' Groats in an attempt to understand the relentless physical and mental challenges involved. 'End to End' is a captivating and beautifully written narrative. A portrayal of hope and ambition, of what happens when things go wrong and how hard it is to make them right. It is about courage, obsession and joy, but above all else, it is a compelling exploration of why journeys matter for all of us.
