Overview

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 TWO - Bodmin to Tiverton

Today's route will take us out of Cornwall and across Devon via Holsworthy, Hatherleigh, Monkokehampton, Morchard Bishop and Puddington (will definitely take a photo by this town name).  If those town names mean nothing to you, you are in the same boat as Will.  The total distance will be 137km with 1680m of ascent.  The route can be downloaded from here.

Not many touristy things on today's route, though planning on a quick stop at English Heritage's Penhallam Manor to enjoy the woodland setting and catch our breath.  

"The low, grass-covered but complete ground-plan of a moated manor house built by the de Cardinham family in the 13th century."
