Mike Broadwith has broken the record for Land’s End to John o’Groats, set in 2001.
John o’Groats. Record broken. After the most unbelievable 43 hours 25 minutes and 13 seconds. Thank you to the whole team for getting @24HourMaths in and, remarkably, ahead of his schedule. 🎉🚴🏻 pic.twitter.com/RY5FBMJD8F

In addition to the usual challenges facing any world record contender, Mike had to overcome torrential rains and freezing temperatures. The result was the a neck that was totally non-functional.
He’s still having to prop his head up on his hand / elbow (resting on the aero bars) hence the slower pace even on flats / downhill. Scary to watch him descending in that position at speed.

I hope you’ll join me in wishing @24HourMaths congratulations and well-deserved rest!
