Hi Nick
Thanks for sending me a copy of your Lejog book.
I really enjoyed it and hope it raises funds for your well deserving charity

Jogle 2020
Some of the Wimps have been talking of a Wimps Jogle next year.
We all had an adventure last year with Lejog where our aim was the shortest route possible with the least climbing.
If we are to do a Jogle I would like it to be a Jogle Tour giving us time to visit and spend more time in places of interest on the way.
This would mean more miles and more days on the road.
Such a ride may well take three weeks or so to complete.

Certainly a different route to the black isle from jog would be interesting, then down the great glen via the canal to Fort Bill ??

I'm at the caravan at the moment so I have limited WiFi I will play with the route maps when I get home. I wonder if the team of John W Kev and Ken could be reformed.
A day exploring Ecclefechan would be nice :lol:

Some shorter days with a planned pub at the end would be good.

Also down my way via Clevedon sea front so we can see the fab Victorian Pier (there’s also a nice cafe) and Weston sea front as it’s much nicer than the housing estate we rode around....
