The famous Lands End to John O'Groats. I'm doing it in two weeks from now.

This will be the hardest I have even ridden (assuming I can actually do it). Ten days total and I'm not taking the shortest route. 1700km (averaging 170km per day) with the longest day at 184km and the shortest 154km and up to 3000m climbing on some days. Of course this is nothing compared to what the Giro di Italia pros ride but I ain't a pro.

It has taken me almost three months to plan this. The route and the accommodation arrangements were very difficult to get right. I wanted to avoid all the major roads and towns as much as possible so my route is kind of hilly and narrow for most of the way but with very light traffic. Almost no 'A' roads except where it became necessary because of no alternative route (especially through northern Scotland where there are few or no alternatives). I did decide to pass through Glasgow because it has a beautiful cycle path that follows the river running through the city, but I am not stopping there.

Anyone want to join me?

I am kind of treating this ride as a warm up to the Fast America ride next year (although I'm not confirmed for that, just a future desire). The FA ride averages about 180km per day for 28 days, but it does also have a couple of rest days. Anyhow, if this LEJOG ride goes well then I will be seriously considering the FA as a follow up.

Three days elapsed. Nobody replied.

Why? Rolling Eyes

revolution has been a diligent moderator since he/she secretly took up the job. He/she has been very helpful to other forum members; he/she always answers the questions/inquiries raised in a timely and professional manner.

I strongly suggest that the forum members be a bit more grateful to him/her.

Pal, I wish you an adventurous ride. Enjoy your bike trip.

revolution,

Be sure to report any suspicious "smoke" or vapors from a fellow cyclists pannier!

From the New York Police: If you see something, say something.

Have fun.

That is the point. If it was easy then there would be no point in doing it.

Thanks for the invitation. I will be repairing my wheelchair that week.

I was supposed to go to the dentist the last week of July to get new teeth, but then, I thought, what the heck, eating soup isn't so bad, and probably even a bit healthy, since I need to lose 40#.

I actually bought a bicycle to ride, to and from the gym to play basketball, but the unit was defective, pedal broke off, (yeah, Walmart special, on sale), and I ended up pushing the bicycle 7 kilometers back to the house. That was my first and last experience with a bicycle.

I had to inquire about this LEJOG business, for I had never heard of these places. Lots of interesting, ancient history in that northern most part of Britain.

Here's hoping you have another great voyage. Smile

So bring along your wheelchair instead of your bike. It would be good exercise for your arms. Razz

I don't plan to do LEJOG penniless and naked like George and Ben, but if things go badly I might be forced to. Wink

You should stop by Bratislava during that May trip. It's quite close, just over Alps.
I also want to do another trip. It takes me close to fasm land, and a bit further to fasmlib land.

Oh, was this your route? If it was, you visited my hometown.

Next time if any of you FASM-Board Members visit south-eastern Poland please contact me, we will have a beer, visit some antique parts of town, go to get a breath of some wild nature or just chat about FASM Wink Seriously you're very welcome.

BTW I used to ride a bike a couple of years ago back in school. Mostly short ones 2 - 3 days. My longest trip was about 14 days long and 500 Km's. It was a disaster, my bike was braking down all the time and the whole group had to wait for me most of the time while I was walking the bike;)

I'm not doing that trip. Things conspired against me doing it.

I wish I could incorporate your sense of humor in my writing; you are an amazing comedian.

I sincerely hope that you can spend more time here and inspire the forum members with your writing mastery.

Have a nice and safe trip. Smile

Don't forget to convey our greetings to Scottish people and their land (all those fragrant hills of purple heather, streams and stones). Wink
