- Tomorrow I'm starting LEJOG!!
I may have put the odd post up over the past 8 months about doing LEJOG, well we travel down tomorrow for what promises to be a rather warm nine days riding north. The three of us are self-funding the whole thing and every penny of sponsorship is for our chosen charities. Luckily we have a support driver too, which will help no end with keeping us topped-up with essentials.
Anyway, thanks to those who have offered tips and advice. I’m raising money for the acute stroke unit at Nottm City Hospital after a close family and lifelong cyclist had a major stroke last year, not sure what the deal is with posting links to charity fundraising pages, but happy to if folks would like it.

Day 1 (20th July): Land’s End – Plymouth (92 miles)
Day 2 (21st July): Plymouth – Chew Valley (121 Miles)
Day 3 – (22nd July): Chew Valley – Hope (112 Miles)
Day 4 (23rd July): Hope to Slaidburn (127 Miles)
Day 5 (24th July): Slaidburn to Longtown (107 Miles)
Day 6 (25th July): Longtown to Loch Lomond (120 Miles)
Day 7 (26th July): Loch Lomond to Invergarry/ Fort Augustus (110 Miles)
Day 8 (27th July): Invergarry to Lairg (93 Miles)
Day 9 (28th July): Lairg to John O’Groats (97 Miles)
One of the guys will be using his Garmin for live tracking too, will be on Twitter: @Lejog2013. I’ll post up updates too: @gregoryjhPosted 4 years ago
Well all went well, and we rolled into JOG around 16:00 on Sunday. Some rain (well a lot at times), some aches, a lot of laughs! Thoroughly enjoyed it and would do it again in a heartbeat. I’m amazed how I managed the mileage over the 9 days, longest day was 125 and shortest 82. Wonderful experience.Posted 4 years ago
