    Alternative LEJOG Route

    I was looking at the short course route of the Pan Celtic Race and was thinking it would be an interesting base to start a Lejog route. It would make it a bit longer than normal, but quite interesting, with the occasional "cruise" thrown in. Has anyone else done this sort of thing?

    Comments on LEJOG 2020 draft route

    I'm planning a 2020 LEJOG with @I like Skol and a few others. As I've floated the idea, it falls to me to do the bulk of the planning including the route. We are all regular cyclists and, given where we live, quite used to hard days in the saddle. However, we want this to be an adventure and...

    COUCH TO LEJOG FOR PARTIALLY SIGHTED

    Having recently become partially sighted (prob eventually blind) and depressed as s result I am looking for a focus and think LEJOG On SUSTRANS paths is the thing. I am a 53 year old couch potato, used to do a variety of spots. As I am partially sighted I need to do the largely traffic-free path...

    LEJOG record attempt

    I hope I've posted this in the right place for most people, some might say it should be in the sport section. I've never been a cycle sport competitor or spectator but for some reason the LEJOG record breaking attempt by Michael Broadwith caught my imagination and one evening a year ago I cycled...

    Hi all, long time for me posting. But I'm considering taking on lejog in 2020. Now currently I have a cyclocross bike, merdian 500. I bought it 18mnths ago and done 50miles on it. So I'm thinking would you advise doing lejog o this bike with slick road tyres on or would it be better to get a...

    re this previous posting, I am now going to be starting Monday 20th May. You can follow me here for my blogs including prep and kit list I haven't got the perfect route, but my brain will explode if I try to plot any further. Forecast for the next two weeks (covering my first week) is...

    LEJOG roads not to be missed

    I have started planning a LEJOG (or JOGLE not decided on direction yet) and am seeking out the quieter roads. Why plan a fast route when you can be on roads like the one I have found below (if you allow enough time)? What favourite roads would you have in your LEJOG? I am particuarly a fan...

    86 year old doing LEJOG

    86 year old Laurence Brophy from Pencoed in South Wales is setting off today to do Lands End to J.O.G. He is quite an exceptional man who took up long distance running at 60 to keep fit. He plans to sleep rough when possible to save money. If successful he will be the oldest LEJOG rider...

    Shorter First Day Lejog

    We want to cut the first day shorter (concerned about the level of difficulty ) but are having trouble finding a place to stay overnight . Are there B&Bs or campgrounds in between King Harry Ferry and St. Austell? How hard is that first day fryom Land's End to Fowey?

    JoGLE complete at last!

    It's only taken me about 25 years but today I finally reached Land's End, having been to JoG in the early 90's.. Oh and I haven't been to either on a cycle. JoG was by car, and today I was at Land's End on my Honda motorbike having left home 4 days ago. Slow I know, but I've also done Snowdonia...

    LEJOG - Royston Wood - A Safer way

    In September 2016 after completing a London to Paris ride, on the Avenue Verte, self supported, I managed to inspire myself into wanting to complete a bigger challenge. Lands End to John O Groats took my attention- a 1000 mile ride across mainland Britain. Solo & self supported I followed a 10...

    Do I want to do LEJOG?

    Silly question, I know. Only I can answer it. However, I'm looking for a little help in doing so. Basically, the question is, the challenge of LEJOG aside, is it an enjoyable ride? I would be travelling solo, trying to minimise cost and time off work, so we're talking camping + hostels, etc...

    Lejog On The Turbo

    Never being a big turbo fan, but the smart trainers have made it a bit more interesting, I like Zwift but there are only so many times you can smite Yoda's Tricycle, the CC Bkool leagues look a bit too quick for me and are at the wrong times for me. I liked the real world rides and videos of...

    Man cycles LEJOG in virtual reality

    Just putting this up for discussion as I couldn`t see it elsewhere. I think it`s quite a good idea as to the principle behind it and I`d be surprised if some techy company didn`t take him up on it I`d need a set of wipers for the VR lenses given how much I sweat on the turbo! View...
