JOGLE first timer

Postby McSuggy » 5 Nov 2019, 2:04pm

Hi Everyone

I'm new here so apologises if this post is in the wrong place.

After several years of umming and arrhing (if they're even words) I have finally decided to cycle JOGLE next May. I've planned my route and booked my B & B's but was just wondering if anyone has any tips/advice for me. I'm no "Tour de France" cyclist so I'll be taking in the views along the way.

Thanks :)

Hi McSuggy

Welcome to the forum

A good idea would be to post your route and the time you want to do it in. you will get lots of advice and places to avoid places to stay etc.

Get plenty of training in. If your looking at doing 100 mile days make sure you can do 100 milers back to back as that is what you'll be doing.

Have a look at the ride end to end web site .....link at top of this section Cycle End-to-End . I've got my blog on there No 573

regards Malc
Percussive maintainance, if it don't fit, hit it with the hammer.

As McSuggy already has his route and stops planned I don’t think we should say " I wouldn’t do it that way". :)
I do think you are right to Jogle in May as the chances are you’ll get a tail wind more than a headwind.
Good advice is don’t go hungry, keep eating, it’s amazing how many calories you can burn day after day.
Whatever I am, wherever I am, this is me. This is my life

Don't do it in an anything less than 10 days, take plenty of photos and speak to everyone you meet.

Enjoy

Cheers James
