The film of John Woodburn's Land End to John O'Groats Record

'John Woodburn is a most remarkable rider …the End-to-End record Land's End to John O'Groats which he broke in 1982 at the age of 45 is some feat.' Steve Wilson  

1 day, 21 hours, 3 minutes and 16 seconds… That's how long it took John Woodburn to ride the 848 miles from Lands End to John O'Groats. He broke the record by 96 minutes. This record attempt, filmed in 1982 will long be remembered as a ride which placed John among the greats of long distance time trialling.

His name joins that elite list of record breakers, names such as Mills, Green, Opperman, Rossiter and Ferris. Mixing footage of the ride with John's own memories, this film provides a first hand look at the record, which despite the many times it has been ridden has never been filmed before. Determination and courage saw John through 2 days and 2 nights. His average speed over the 848 miles was 19 miles per hour. This at the age of 45 years old was an incredible feat.

This new DVD includes an additional hour of new material, including an interview filmed with John at his home and previously unseen footage of the his 1981 attempt.
