Martyn Sibley’s Craziest Challenge Yet For Britain’s Personal Best

July 24, 2013

Martyn Sibley has done some crazy things in his time. (That’s why he is one of my favourite DisAled people, but don’t tell him that, he just thinks I think he’s crazy).

Still, now he’s about to take on his craziest challenge yet. He’s doing John ‘O’ Groats to Land’s End.

Loads of people have done that, I hear you say. Except Martyn Sibley’s doing it by wheelchair. Correct me if I’m wrong, readers, but I’m pretty sure he’ll be the first.

Martyn explains the method in his madness here at The Big Lottery Fund site. Huffington Post deserve a special mention and thanks for also giving him well-deserved coverage.

    Nobody’s done that particular journey before, but a few years ago someone did it a trip in a power chair right the way down the Rhone valley. Tried looking up the incident on Google but couldn’t find any records, but Invacare gave the person who did it a wheelchair of the same model as the one they had used.

    The fastest time in a wheelchair was achieved in August 2009 by US Navy Pilot Rick Ryan: 8 days, 10 hours and 9 minutes
