Looking for company - lejog April or May 2017

Postby Oliveriles » 12 Mar 2017, 7:24pm

I am riding lejog using the "A Safer Way route by Royston Wood"

I'm doing the ride over either 7 days straight or 2 days on 1 day off and repeat in late April or Early May 2017.

The route is all plotted and averages around 135 miles per day stopping at Premier Inn or such type locations each night.

Happy to do it solo but if anyone is interested in riding it with me get in touch.

Mick F may be up for it? Be a good test for his new bag.

Yeah, but 135miles a day?????
80 miles a day is nice, even with 100mile days thrown in.

............... and I'm not getting any younger, despite a new bag. :lol:

Want to borrow a bit of rope with a hook?

Looks good, I'm planning something similar but won't have the time till later in the year. Not come across that route, have you a link?

Sounds a bit of a slog to me, the author says he used canal towpaths and old railway tracks. Mick F will tell you the best route.
