The End-to-End is the iconic long distance British cycling tour. Four of us undertook this momentous journey of over 950 miles in June 2015 when we cycled from John o’Groats to Land’s End (i.e. JOGLE). We completed the journey in 16 days – one of which was a rest day.
The full team was: Andy, Andy S, Neil and Tracey. Neil’s wife Nic and Sarah (who sadly broke her foot just 3 weeks before the tour) accompanied us as our support team.
Beginning from John o’Groats we cycled along the top of Scotland and the Highlands before dropping down through Inverness, the Cairngorms and in to Edinburgh. We then cycled through the Scottish borders towards Carlisle, the Lake District (including a rest day in Grasmere), and the North West of England. Next we cycled through Shropshire and hugged the Welsh borders. Indeed we briefly cycled into Wales where we crossed the Severn Bridge. Finally there were the challenges of the rolling Devon and Cornwall lanes to overcome before we reached Land’s End.
Sarah and I had completed an End-to-End before when we had cycled in the other direction, from Land’s End to John o’Groats in 2012. However for various reasons we decided to cycle it again! With our regular tour team on-board this trip in many ways proved even more memorable!
