Eastbourne to Thurso and Back

Do you enjoy going for a bike ride?

What do you reckon is the furthest you’ve ever ridden in a day?

Well Justin Futers is going for it big time cycling 1,800 miles from Eastbourne to Thurso and back.

He left Eastbourne on the 1 September 2019 and hopes to back in under two weeks.

He came up with the idea after visiting a Christian Missions Charitable Trust project in Chennai, India, where they provide relief and development opportunities to vulnerable people.

Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton caught up with Justin just before he crossed the Scottish Border.
