What's it all about?

At the end of September 2012 I completed a cycle from Portsmouth 2 Penzance a total of 273 miles! raising money for Children In Need is the Plan. This was also be a personal challenge for me as I haven't been cycling in over 25 years and that was only for fun nothing serious. On top of that have a prolapsed disc, was 46 years old and at the start of 2012 a bit over weight, well lot over weight really, since then I've lost nearly 3 stone! So I opted to do the big one, John O'Groats 2 Lands End on May 6th 2013. The End 2 End or P2P (point to point, as it's sometimes called ) around 1000 miles! This time I had company, Colin, a friend from work, who has said he is as mad as I am and would like to come! This blog contains that story....This event is in memory of the sad passing of my mum on 17th of April this year having lost her fight with terminal Bowel Cancer.

I guess you'd call it the sequel, I have decided it would be just rude not to go back the other way!!! so May 2015, with a new friend, Pete and with Alan driving a support vehicle ( luxury) we plan the classic Lands End to John O'Groats, also known as LEJOG
. Mad ? yes I think we must be.

Route Change part 2

Ok, I  changed the Hatherleigh end for Great Torrington due to B&B issues, this change is purely personal choice. The plan was the day before Great Torrington to end up in Weston-Supermare. The main reason was most other ways into North Devon were very hilly having to go over the Mendips, my plan was to stick to the coast and , well go round them. However the more I think about it the more I thought I really would like to cycle through Cheddar Gorge, so ( sorry Colin ) that what we'll do and end up staying in Cheddar instead. The other advantage of this route change is we not going as close to the centre of Bristol as before. Now to find the final B&B in Chedddar
Here's the new route
