Join Will & Jon for a fortnight of cycling LEJOG, a cycle tour of the UK from Lands End to John O’Groats.  The whole route will take 14 days (plus 2 days travelling) covering 1000 miles so join for as much or as little as you can face!  The trip is organised as day events, allowing you to sign up to whatever days you fancy, booking your own transport and accommodation according to your budget.

DAY FOURTEEN - Lairg to John O'Groats

If all things go well, this will be it the final day of LEJOG.  We cycle north to the coast and then follow it east until our feet get wet.  We cover 160km with 1460m of ascent.

The route can be downloaded from here.

Friday 17th July accommodation suggestions in John O'Groats:

  • Will, Jon & Skip have booked into Puffin Cottage in John O'Groats through Booking.com.  There are plenty more small hotels and B&Bs in the surrounding area.

Keep costs down by getting twin rooms and sharing.

Getting there and back again

If you are joining us for the day, the nearest train station to the starting point is Golspie.

I rather expect most people will spend the night in John O'Groats otherwise the nearest station is Thurso.


If you have any questions regarding equipment etc email Will.Allaway@Outdoorlads.com.

A lot of useful information is included in Day 0 - Getting to Lands End.
