Name: Andrew WoodsWoods

Cycling experience: A novice cyclist. Mr Woods only started cylcing properly when he agreed to join the LeJog team, which was a little over a year ago. Since that time he has covered just over 1000 miles whilst training, which sounds a lot until you consider that he will have to do more than that in only two weeks on the actual trip.

Reasons for joining the team: God knows! Must have been mad!
Looking forward to: Seeing the country in which I live. Experiencing how big the UK is. Arriving in John O’Groats.
Not looking forward to: Sore bum. Corwall’s hills / Welsh hills / Derbyshire’s hills / Yorkshire’s hills / Nothumberland’s hills / Scottish hills…you get the idea. Rain. Wind (not just Woodsy’s). Injury. Getting lost.
