Why Lands End to John O’Groats?

Cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the furthest possible distance in the British Isles, is a classic challenge I’ve always wanted to complete. Starting at Land’s End on the south-westerly tip of England, I will pedal my way through Cornwall, over Dartmoor and north along the Welsh border, skirting the Lake District into Scotland, via lochs and the Highlands to the North Coast and John O’Groats.

In all I will cover roughly 1000 miles, passing through some of the most stunning and remote countryside in the British Isles. This will be tough challenge but a fabulous way to see the country, and a great way to celebrate my 50th birthday.
