About this site
If you’re thinking of cycling between Lands End and John O’Groats, this site should help. All the stats and facts are under ‘Core Info’. All the whinges and whines are in the Blog. Please add your own comments/questions/experiences
This site is about the before, during and after of riding from John O’Groats to Lands End. It’s fairly factual and list-like mainly because I found it difficult to extract practical information when I was planning the trip, so I thought I’d try to make this more of a functional resource than a subjective diary
The core information links: Charity; Accomodation; Costs; Gear; Route; Training are to-the-point so you can get to the information quickly and easily without having to trip up over somone’s harrowing account of mending a puncture on top of Shap Fell.
Blow by Blow
This is where you’ll find the harrowing account of mending a puncture on top of Shap Fell. The day-to-day whinges, whines and wry observations which I will find amusing, compelling and frightfully incisive. You’ll probably want to ignore these.
Since this is supposed to be a useful resource for others, please feel free to add comments on any and all the pages to help keep it all current.
