Cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats?

Whether cycling Lands End to John O’Groats (or End to End as it or its reverse John O Groats to Land’s End is often known) has been a long term goal or is a new ambition, you are probably looking for some help.

On this website you will find all the advice and help you need to successfully complete your End to End cycle, whether in 5 days, 10 days, 4 weeks or longer. It is based on my experience of cycling it 3 times: from bombing down “A” roads in my first uninitiated attempt from John O’Groats to Lands End to a much safer  (and more enjoyable) way using lanes, cycle routes and canal paths wherever possible.

I have tried to cram everything I have learnt about planning, training, equipment, nutrition and route creation for a Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle on this website.

Of course, if you would rather sit back with a paperback, Kindle or PDF, I have published three books which contain all the information on the website and much more, including gpx route files. You can find out more about them here.
