I’ve just completed the re planning for my route which was made necessary as my contract has been extended, so I need to be back for work on the 21st October.

This route at 1034 miles and tackling some stunning and remotest parts of the UK solo will be a great test of my legs and mental strength! If you are anywhere near these places, I’d LOVE to see you 🙂

The ‘Final’ Route for my End 2 End ‘It’s not about the Bike’ Lands End to John O Groats Ride starting October 2nd 2014

Detailed daily route plans to follow.

I’ve planned the whole route using the excellent Bike Hub app, which is ideal for cyclists. It sync’s seamlessly with ViewRanger for elevation details and all manner of useful info to keep me on track.

Viewranger works great with iPhones making it an ideal outdoor GPS companion. The Automated Route Planning tool is incredible and so quick when tweaking or planning walks or bike rides.

I’m still £1000 short of my target and almost 2/3 of the way there (not including gift aid), if you haven’t sponsored me yet, please visit my Virginmoney giving site and read why I’m doing this, then consider nudging my total up please?
