The ideal gift for anyone thinking about cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats, even if to yourself.

Either way this book has all the information you need to plan, train for and cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats (or John O'Groats to Lands End if you prefer). Even answers the questions you didn't know you needed to ask. This book has helped thousands of readers with tips and advice about: How to get to the start/from the finish Where you are going to sleep Equipment - what you need to take with you Nutrition - what you should eat and drink How much training you need to do Route creation including how to create your own personalised route with gpx file using Google Maps A narrative of somebody else's journey to get a feel for the experience and practical pointers on how to deal with some of the problems you may encounter What is it all about? One of the great thing about the end to end challenge is that it is a big, bold and ambitious challenge that everybody can understand (which helps if for your trying to raise sponsorship for charity) and that most people can achieve if they spend the right amount of time on the ride for their level of riding ability. The concept of cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats is quite simple, get on your bike at one end of the country and ride to the other end. That is why it is often referred to as cycling end to end (it's also less of a mouthful!). The problems start when you come to actually start thinking in detail about planning an end to end cycle. It suddenly looks a whole lot more complicated. Which is probably why you are here, looking for some advice. This book covers everything you need to know to plan and train for your epic cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats (LEJOG) or John O'Groats to Lands End (JOGLE). Like you, I scoured the internet looking for sites or guides that would tell me what I needed to know to plan my route from John O' Groats to Lands End train for the ride. I found an enormous quantity of sites and guides but most of them, whilst interesting, were of little help. I bought Land's End to John O' Groats route books that looked good but when I got into the detail I realised the proposed end to end route was not what I wanted. Eventually I found everything I needed, or learnt the hard way, but it took a long time. I just wished that someone had written: The Book I am Looking For That Has All The Answers I Need to Plan and Complete That Lands End to John O'Groats [or Vice Versa] Ride I've Always Talked About Doing But Never Got Around To But they hadn't. So, I decided to write it myself! (But the title was a bit of a mouth full so I changed it.) Reader comments: '...if you've never planned a ride like this before I would highly recommend this book...' '...really helpful and amusing enough to overcome my woefully short attention spa...' '...full of very practical tips and advice...' '...it's worth every penny...' '...excellent read for potential End to Enders...' '...the best by far of all that I have read; informative, practical, thoughtful and best of all humorous and entertaining...' '...I was finding the lack of information in a single source frustrating and then found this!...' '...enough detail and humour to leave the reader with the optimism that they too can meet the challenge themselves...' '...packed with useful information and practical guidance...' '...this book really aided my planning and training...'

The book is an account of a journey using local service buses from Lands End in the deepest south west of England up to John O’Groats in the far north east of Scotland. With the issue of free bus passes to all British citizens over the age of sixty, the author decided to maximise the use of his in undertaking this 1,230 mile trip. By way of being different, the author decided to take with him, his dog Archie, a Jack Russell / cairn terrier cross, as he too enjoys travelling. The book is not just a travel log across and up the length of Britain, but includes much historical and general information of towns and cities visited with time taken at the various stop-over points to look around and explore. In addition to the exploits of the author’s dog, the book contains his thoughts and observations during the journey. Some of these are referred to as “Rants” made on the author’s own admission as being a “grumpy old man”. The detailed planning and preparation of the trip is explained that deliberately took in many historic towns and cities. From Penzance, the route traverses England through Exeter, Bath Oxford, Leicester, Lincoln and then across the Humber and up the east coast by Scarborough, Durham, Newcastle and onto Berwick before crossing the border into Scotland. From here on, the bus journey followed the east coast through Edinburgh, over the Firth of Forth to Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness, Dornoch and Wick before reaching their final destination at John O’Groats. The book has been written in a light vein and contains an element of humour. Hopefully, the reader will become a little more knowledgeable about this historic and beautiful island of ours by the end. It is certainly true that “travel does broaden the mind”.
