Pegleg & John prepare to JOGLE-on!
Famous for surfing with one leg Pegleg has now taken on one of the most challenging endurance rides you can do for charity– from John O Groats to Lands End (AKA, the JOGLE). Pegleg and best friend John will be heading to Scotland when the tourist season draws to a close at the end of September.
Naturally the 1,000 mile expedition will start with a surf in the Scottish ocean and maybe a wee dram to soak up some local culture. The duo will then tackle 40-50 miles a day on their 1970”s original Italian quadricycle bike. A piece of equipment that became part of the team following a spontaneous bid placed on ebay after last orders.
Pegleg is a huge fan of the Wave Project so has chosen to raise funds for our charity together with another cause close to his heart, Handstand – the Appeal for Marshall Janson. Pegleg explains his philosophy perfectly in these well chosen words:
‘’It’s about perspective. To many I have less than most, which is what has lead me to having more than most’’
We will be following the duo as they wheel through the 23 counties, no doubt creating a tale or two along their journey as they meet the locals and experience the culinary delights.
We will be there to welcome them home at Land’s End with pasties and Wave Project hugs. If you would like to show your support for their tremendous efforts and spirit you can donate on their Just Giving Page:
