Land’s End to John o’ Groats (LeJog) is the traversal of the whole length of the island of Great Britain between two extremities, in the southwest and northeast going from Cornwall to the far reaches of Scotland, it is the furthest you can go within the British Isles without changing direction.
There are many ways to go through this route, traditionally considered to be a walk, the route is now traversed in a number of ways, with cycling and multi-modal expeditions being particularly popular in recent years.
As for me, I am going to do it on a bike “virtually” in the sens that I won’t physically be on the route itself since it would complicated anyway with the COVID19 situation, however I will put the same physical effort and count all the kilometers I do during April’21 either indoor (on my smart trainer) or outdoor or my real bike.
To track the distance, I will use a mix of online platforms, namely Strava to keep track of all individuals ride and Conqueror Events to combine all these individuals rides and translate it as if I was riding LeJog for real.
The total route lenght is 1083 miles long which is equivalent to 1743 kilometers, and all this will need to be done in April’21.
More details to come on the Conqueror Events platform and indoor virtual ride using a smart trainer, stay tuned 😉
