Cycling Land’s End to John O’Groats (LEJOG) or its reverse John O’Groats to Lands End (JOGLE) is one of the UK’s most popular cycling challenges. Generically, it is often referred to as an end to end cycle.
Whether cycling end to end has been a long term goal for you, or it’s a new ambition, you are probably searching for some help and inspiration. If so, read on.
Dig deep into the menus on this website to find all the advice you need to help you 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 end to end 5 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 on a more traditional Lands End to John O’Groats cycle. This route was certainly a ‘Safer Way‘ and I later completed it with my son on a tandem, to raise money for a charity dear to his heart.
You should also check out the Lands End to John O’Groats Cycling Guide Facebook page for more information and interaction with other riders who have an interest in completing a Lands End to John O Groats cycle.
Of course, if you would rather sit back with a paperback, Kindle or PDF, I have published three Lands End to John O’Groats books which contain information from the website and much more, including gpx route files. You can DOWNLOAD FREE SAMPLES or find out more about them here.
