Lands End to John o’Groats Cycle – supporting the Gurkha Welfare Trust

18th January 2022

Lands End to John o'Groats (LEJOG) Cycle - Summer 2022

David is planning to cycle LEJOG again in 2022 to raise money for the Gurkha Welfare Trust.

He has done this before in 2019 and also organised a similar ride round Britain last summer as well wants to get the whole team from the start to the finish successfully. He is looking for anyone who might be interested in joining him either as a rider or as part of his support crew of drivers. It’s an iconic ride and a great experience that takes you through some of the most amazing scenery in the UK including:

Cornwall, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Cheddar Gorge, Wye Valley, Shropshire Hills, Lake District, Scottish Lowlands, Loch Lomond, Glencoe, The Great Glen, Loch Ness and up to John O’Groats itself.

Dates are currently flexible but will be either in the month before the school holidays or in the week or two after but the outline of the ride would be as follows:

  • Supported ride on road bikes
  • Following minor roads wherever possible
  • Nine days
  • 950 miles
  • 105 – 115 miles a day, ideally as a group
  • Camping overnight
  • Team of 8-10 riders
  • Small support crew
  • Costs shared – typically around £350 – £450 for the trip

If you wanted to do this as an individual it would cost about £1500 or more but it can be done far more cheaply and with all the same fun and adventure. He has probably six or seven riders already keen so he is looking for another 2 or 3 if possible so do let him know by email to david@bigpictureltd.com if you might be interested in hearing more.
