James Cracknell and Jerone Walters will aim to break one of the oldest cycling records in the world when they depart from Land's End on their custom built Dolan tandem, ‘Rocket 2.'

Unbeaten since 1966, the Land's End to John O'Groats men's tandem record belongs to PM Swinden and WJ Withers, standing at 50 hours 14 minutes. If weather conditions prove suitable, the pair will depart at 3am on Saturday October 1 to ride through Bristol, Lancaster and Gretna Green before aiming to arrive at John O'Groats before 5am on October 3.
