Last month I wrote about our friends Lianna Hulbert and Simon Etkind who are attempting to pedal 930 miles across the country to raise money for charity. They started at Land’s End on 29 June: you can find out all about their Rickshaw Odyssey on their blog, and perhaps make a donation.
There is something quixotic about this act – and also romantic, for Ms Hulbert and Mr Etkind (both 24) are soon to be married. I guess there’s nothing that’ll try a relationship more than a puncture to a rickshaw in the rain in the middle of nowhere.
When the Croxii had the pleasure of welcoming them to Cromer earlier today, they seem to have survived 730 miles in remarkably good spirits, and are tanned, happy and of course incredibly fit. They complete their odyssey by pedalling into Lowestoft this Sunday.
They didn’t stay long as they had to pedal another seven miles to Mundesley in the hope of finding a campsite. Not, though, without posing for a picture…
And so they pedalled down Cromer High Street, heading eastwards and hopefully into the proverbial record books.
