Cycling John O’Groats to Land’s End had been on my mind for some years. The appeal was not only the challenge of travelling such an epic distance under my own steam but seeing the, beautifully, diverse landscapes throughout the United Kingdom. I decided that 2019 was going to be the year.
For logistical reasons, mainly living in Exeter, I decided to complete my journey from top to bottom. I wanted to take a more scenic route and immerse myself in the whole experience, rather than race to the end.My Jounral
I planned my trip over 18 days, using the Sustrans Cycle Network of quiet roads and tracks. With my noble steed, I set off for John O’Groats on a solo, self-supported adventure, setting off the 8th August 2019, arriving in Land’s End on 25th August 2019.
