Cycling Lejog

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 23 August 2011 | Views [335]

The word "lejog" stands for "Lands End to John O Groats" the two furthest points in mainland Britain a distance of approximately 1000 miles. Travelling in the other direction is reffered to as "Jogle"

Every year over 5000 people cycle the whole route. Some for charity. Some for the sense of achievement.

The journey takes around 2 weeks. Some people walk the entire distance and this can take about 2 months.

Most people find the toughest part of the journey to be the Cornish hills.

Other methods of travel have included Public transport, Hitchhiking, Running, Motor transport and wheelchair.

Most cyclists will make an online jogle lejog cycle blog detailing their adventures.
