A 1146 mile cycle ride from Land's End to John o' Groats
We’ve got twenty days to complete our cycle ride, so we’ll be meandering up the length of the British Isles along quiet country lanes, travelling about 50 miles per day. No heads down, 100 mile days on busy A roads. No thanks. Hopefully we’ll have time to stop and have an ice-cream or three, feed ducks, chat to locals and have a generally nice time.
After much thought, we’ve planned a route based on Phil Horsley’s Land’s End to John O’Groats – The Great British Adventure. Sellotaping two cheap road atlases together, I painstakingly drew out the route, cut them down to A5 and laminated them back to back. In true old man style, I’ll be clipping them to my handlebars with a big bulldog clip.
GPS? Well, I have my iphone if we get lost.
And here’s a simplified map of the route. Click to enlarge.
Give us a wave if you see us.
