Welcome to My Lejog, a guide to cycling end to end from Lands End to John o Groats, the ultimate bike ride in the UK. For years I have admired cyclists that have undertaken one of the most challenging cycle rides in the United Kingdom.
Riding from the southern tip of England to the Northern tip of Scotland is as I see it a challenge and a journey that all keen cyclists should do. Whether you do it for charity or in my case as part of a mid life crisis, it is sure to be a cycle adventure that you will never forget.
This website has been created to document My LEJoG, my ride from Lands End to John o Groats as well as acting as a guide for those who dream to do it.
From the up and down hills of Cornwall and Devon, to the Somerset Levels and South Midlands, the hilly and picturesque North West of England and then on to spectacular Scotland, this guide will tell you all you need to know about how I did it and what happened along the way.
Why Cycle Lands End to John o Groats?
That is a a question I have been asking myself since I decided to take a break from work at the ripe old age of 45 and take on the near 1000 miles across the UK. Cycling has always been a passion, whether it be the 4 miles each way on my daily commute or the longer rides I have done, I have always enjoyed riding my bike and to me this is a ride I have always wanted to do.
What was my Inspiration to Tackle LEJOG?
A thirst for travel, a 2 year lockdown and countless hours watching YouTube videos about various other cyclists completing their end to end ride.
The homepage is just the start of this adventure! look around and maybe you may could be inspired to cycle LEJoG.
