Take a Thousand Miles
From Falmouth, at the south end of Cornwall to ...
Stromness, at the southern end of Orkney ... is a thousand miles. Flights can be made in half-a-day, car journeys in two days, but cycling times depend on strength, resolution, kit and prevailing winds. Edwin Cooper achieved it in seven days and must be feeling relieved when he wakes this morning. It may be All Fools' Day, but his intentions have been fulfilled.
