Thousands of people cycle the UK from end to end every year, for charity or just for the challenge. This book offers a comprehensive guide to a tried and tested cycle route from Land’s End to John o’ Groats (LEJOG), designed to take in some of the finest cycling that the UK has to offer, along the quieter A roads, B road lanes and cycle paths. 

The junction by junction description of the Land’s End to John o’ Groats cycle route, is in 14 day stages averaging just over 70 miles, illustrated with clear customised OS mapping and profiles so riders know exactly what to expect. All the grid key references are included for use with GPS navigation devices (or conventional maps).

The end to end cycle route can be tackled at any time of year, although good weather and clear visibility will make a far more enjoyable experience. The best time to cycle the route is from late March until late October, when the days are longer and warmer.

The route takes in some stunning areas of Britain including Dartmoor, the Welsh Marches, the Lake District, Loch Lomond and the Great Glen, cycling through National Parks, AONBs and SSSI on the way, and key historical features are described along the way.
