Lands End to John O’Groats is a great adventure and is on the ‘must do’ list of many cyclists. It is an exciting prospect and, quite frankly, a ride that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
But when the exciting prospect begins to change to reality it can all seem a little daunting. There is so much to think about:
- How am I going to get to the start/from the finish?
- Where am I going to sleep?
- What will I need to take?
- What should I eat and drink?
- How much training should I do?
- How do I start creating a route?
- How much is it all going to cost?
Rather than spend days lost on the internet piecing it all together you could draw on my experiences of having ridden End to End three times.
I have written three books on the subject covering all of the above and more. There are brief details below and you can click on the links for each book to find out more.
The books are all available as paperbacks, kindles or other electronic formats and can be purchased individually or all three for the price of two (offer available through this website only).
For as little as £5.98 (less than a Costa coffee and a slice of cake) you could have a guide to all your planning, a detailed narrative of someone else’s ride so you know what to expect and a safe route on gpx files ready to load into your navigation device.
