I’ve made it back to Brighton! The first disabled female cyclist to circumnavigate the entire Great British coastline!

End of journey film – compressed

Today I arrived back in Brighton, 97 days after setting off on my adventure. I’ve tried my best to summarise my thoughts in the video clip so please have a watch and let me know your thoughts.

Thank you to each and every one of you who have supported me throughout my time on the road. There have been so many amazing times but equally there have been a lot of lows and that’s where you all come in – each comment and message lifted my spirits and enabled me to continue when I thought I could not.

Also I have to say a huge thank you to my husband Danny, and parents Linda and Roger, who have dedicated so much of their time and support to help me achieve this feat and without who I may not have made it all the way around our beautiful coastline.

I would love to say that I have finished now but there is the small matter of cycling 70 miles back to Wokingham tomorrow! Some members of my cycling club are meeting me 20 miles from the end to ride back into town with me and push me over the line (and into the pub for celebratory drinks where other club members and friends and family will be waiting!)

  1. Congratulations Natalie, you’ve finally completed your epic journey. This is an amazing achievement and I hope you reach your fundraising target.

    I’ve cycled from Lands End to John o’ Groats back in year 2000 and I found that tough. So, I have an idea of just how difficult your journey has been, and this makes you achievement all the greater.

    Good luck with your trip home tomorrow!

  2. Marvellous achievement glad you made it back to Brighton and wish you well tomorrow
    As I have just arrived on Easter Island so will not be able to witness your triumphant return to Wokingham.

    If the going gets tough in my Marathon on Sunday I will just need to think of you for all the inspiration anyone could need
    An inspirational lady who has completed this awesome journey, overcoming any setbacks along the way
