End-to-End (LEJOG)

Our major cycle tour of 2012 was the End-to-End, starting from Land’s End and finishing at John o’Groats (LEJOG). Over two years in the planning, countless hours of preparation, and plenty of training.

We eventually set off on Tuesday 8th May 2012 on this iconic British cycle ride. For our team of eight intrepid cyclists, ahead lay more than three weeks of cycle touring and 1000+ miles.

We began the LEJOG by cycling through the rolling hills of Cornwall and Devon, resting at Cheddar before crossing the Severn Bridge and then skirting the edge of Wales. From there we continued up through the industrial heart of the North-West of England to the Lake District and our second day of rest. We then crossed into Scotland and took a ferry onto the Isle of Arran for a glorious few days before crossing back onto the mainland and heading up the Great Glen. Finally we cycled up through the barren and endless north of Scotland until eventually reaching John o’Groats on 30th May 2012. It was a monumental achievement!

At the start – only another 1000 miles to go!
