Marlow's Goss Brothers to Cycle from Land's End to John o' Groats

By Andrew Webb

Jack & George Goss to complete the 962 mile challenge in just 10 days

Goss brothers Jack and George are embarking on the challenge of cycling from Land's End to John o' Groats, raising money for their respective chosen charities O2e and the Will Houghton Foundation.

Leaving on Monday the 19th August, Jack & George aim to complete the cycle in 10 days finishing on Wednesday 28th August. What promisies to be an exceptionally tough challenge is made all the easier to the Marlow rugby playing brothers knowing these two great charities will massively benefit from your support and they thank you all so much for your donations.

Ordinary 2 Extraordinary is aimed at improving the lives of children who are in need of help due to disability or illness and by stepping outside of his comfort zone Jack is going from ordinary to extraordinary and hoping to make his own personal impact on the great charities O2e support.

George is riding for the Will Houghton Foundation, that works with UK charities to help 14–24 year olds to reach their potential through education and sport. Will Houghton, a friend of the Goss brothers, was an intelligent, loving, inquisitive and motivated man with a love of family, the outdoors, sea and cycling. He was just 20 years old when he was killed in a road accident while on a training ride near his university in Portsmouth. At the very heart of his foundation is the wish to keep his shining spirit alive and inspire a new generation of young people to be their very best. Will and his foundation is very close to George's heart.
