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 FOUR - Bristol to Worcester

Leaving the south-west and entering the central region.  Today's route will take us north-east (what a surprise) parallel to the River Severn to Gloucester, skirting Tewksbury, a couple of crossings of the M5 (who put that there?) and finally into Worcester.

The total distance will be 128km with 640m of ascent.  The route can be downloaded from here.

Today will be broken up by a cycle around Gloucester's historic docks and cathedral.

Tuesday 7th July accommodation suggestions in Worcester:

  • plenty to choose from including a Premier Inn and Travelodge.
  • The Worcester Whitehouse Hotel - Will and Jon booked into here (includes sauna and steam room).

Keep costs down by getting twin rooms and sharing.
