British Cycle Quest is organised by Cycling UK (formerly CTC / Cyclists' Touring Club), and requires a cyclist to visit six checkpoints in each of the traditional counties of the UK, plus some of the islands.
My quest began back in 1981 when it was known as the Touring Explorer's Award. Touring much of southern England with my father during my teens, by 1989 I had completed the southern region. In 1996 my father became the third of only six people to complete the whole of the UK under the TEA scheme.
Following a break of 25 years, I picked up the challenge again in 2014 under the BCQ scheme and I'm now more than half way through the checkpoints. Follow my progress here!
