THREE young farmers were triumphant on Monday when they cycled into John O’Groats at the end of their 1000-mile challenge.

“What a feeling! Tears of joy and relief! Will smile for about a week now! One of the proudest moments of our lives,” they wrote on their Facebook page.

And they said, despite their exhausting ride, they could still have run a marathon!
