Re: What's the flattest way out of Cornwall and Devon

20 to 25 miles per day did it for me: I am now sitting in Edinburgh with only 350 miles to do having started at the beginning of May. :D

Re: LEJOG Route setting off 6th May.

Hi Rachel I hope you are enjoying your trip as much as I am enjoying mine? I am in York tomorrow done approximately 500 miles got 500 more to do according to Google Maps that is. Journey have been relatively straight forward. Route also relatively straight forward if I avoid the cycle routes. What about you? How are you getting up to JOG?

Re: LEJOG Route setting off 6th May.

Sorry Sorry I did not literally mean the A1 sorry

I will just follow that direction National Cycle Route 1 just that general route. Betty’s in Harrogate for tea and cake seems like a good idea. Tea any one?

Re: LEJOG Route setting off 6th May.

B&B in Clevedon- lovely trip so far. Made a decision about my route- going to head over to the east coast and follow the A1 pretty much up to Edinburgh. Stopping in Harrogate for tea and cake.

Re: LEJOG Route setting off 6th May.

Hi Mick F: many thanks for your advice much appreciated. I am booked into the Premier Inn at Liskeard tonight after that ? I am open to advice. Will book B&B as I go. My original route was Holsworthy Tiverton. Am I digging myself into a hole here.
Anyway I now know that a "highway" is not a main road. I did think it was cute that people were using American terms for their roads.

Re: LEJOG Route setting off 6th May.

Well set off as planned: did not follow the route as planned: Lands End to Penzance to Helston to Falmouth to Truro To St Austell which is where I am now. Thinking about giving the National Cycle Routes a miss. But hey off to Leaskard tomorrow then back on original route probably unless anyone can suggest an alternative? Seat of the pants is good fun
