The tale of a scenic cycling trip—including an index of the 50 finest beers tasted on the trip "One more wouldn't hurt," said Mick. I looked at him doubtfully. "I'm not sure. It's gone three o'clock already. What time does it get dark in Cornwall at this time of year?" "Not for ages," said Mick, waving his hand dismissively. "One more and then we'll get on." He headed back to the bar with our empty beer glasses. As Ellie's 50th birthday approaches and her ambitions of a steady income, a successful career, and an ascent of Everest seem as far away as ever, she begins to doubt she's capable of achieving anything at all. So when her best friend Mick suggests a grueling cycle ride from Land's End to John O'Groats, she takes up the challenge. They opt for the scenic route which takes them along cycle paths, towpaths, and the back roads and byways of Britain, unable to resist sampling local beers in the pubs they pass along the way. But as the pints start to stack up faster than the miles they’re putting under their tires, Ellie wonders if they'll ever make it to the finishing line.

You will not find as much information to help you plan for the big ride in a single source anywhere else. '...if you've never planned a ride like this before I would highly recommend this book...'

'...excellent read for potential End to Enders...' '...the best by far of all that I have read; informative, practical, thoughtful and best of all humorous and entertaining...' '...I was finding the lack of information in a single source frustrating and then found this!...' '...enough detail and humour to leave the reader with the optimism that they too can meet the challenge themselves...' '...packed with useful information and practical guidance...' '...this book really aided my planning and training...' Always dreamt about cycling end-to-end? Or maybe it's a new ambition. Either way this book has all the information you need to plan, train for and cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats (or John O'Groats to Lands End if you prefer). Even answers the questions you didn't know you needed to ask. This book has helped thousands of readers with tips and advice about: How to get to the start/from the finish Where you are going to sleep Equipment - what you need to take with you Nutrition - what you should eat and drink How much training you need to do Route creation including how to create your own personalised route with gpx file using Google Maps A narrative of somebody else's journey to get a feel for the experience and practical pointers on how to deal with some of the problems you may encounter One of the great thing about the end to end challenge is that it is a big, bold and ambitious challenge that everybody can understand (which helps if for your trying to raise sponsorship for charity) and that most people can achieve if they spend the right amount of time on the ride for their level of riding ability. The concept of cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats is quite simple, get on your bike at one end of the country and ride to the other end. That is why it is often referred to as cycling end to end (it's also less of a mouthful!). The problems start when you come to actually start thinking in detail about planning an end to end cycle. It suddenly looks a whole lot more complicated. Which is probably why you are here, looking for some advice. This book covers everything you need to know to plan and train for your epic cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats (LEJOG) or John O'Groats to Lands End (JOGLE). Like you, I scoured the internet looking for sites or guides that would tell me what I needed to know to plan my route from John O' Groats to Lands End train for the ride. I found an enormous quantity of sites and guides but most of them, whilst interesting, were of little help. I bought Land's End to John O' Groats route books that looked good but when I got into the detail I realised the proposed end to end route was not what I wanted. Eventually I found everything I needed, or learnt the hard way, but it took a long time. I just wished that someone had written: The Book I am Looking For That Has All The Answers I Need to Plan and Complete That Lands End to John O'Groats [or Vice Versa] Ride I've Always Talked About Doing But Never Got Around To But they hadn't. So, I decided to write it myself! (But the title was a bit of a mouth full so I changed it.)

For Anna, a cycling enthusiast, the decision to ride 4,000 miles solo around the coast of the UK wasn’t that hard. Following the river from London until it became the sea, then following the sea until it reached the mouth of the Thames again was a beautifully simple idea. But after epic highs, incredible lows, unforgettable scenery and unpronounceable place names – as well as a hearty battle with some good old British weather – her simple idea turns into a compelling journey of self-discovery, and an eye-opening insight into what makes the island where she lives so special.
