Gavin and Jason were well supported across the route, with some riders joining in the ride along the way as well as a Wosskow-Brown service van following them for the whole journey. It is a remarkable achievement for the Northern League veterans, who were clearly emotional after arriving in Tynemouth in the early evening.
