Finally finished my Blog

Postby Duke3376 » 12 Jan 2013, 7:43pm

Well after 17 months I have actually finished my write up on my LEJOG. After being hit and runned in Wick I sort of lost all enthusiasm in every thing about the ride.
I have now decided that this epic journey needs to be logged.

Good read that, and well done for doing it pretty much by yourself! Theres no way i can ride my bike that far on my own.

No sign of it here - did you fill in the form here http://www.cycle-endtoend.org.uk/index. ... &Itemid=40 and send it? (it has a code on the bottom to ensure senders are real and not spambots)

Apologies for the belatedness of this reply but what was your thinking behind using a CX bike to do the LEJOG?

Is it as simple as that's the bike you own?

Did you have any issues problems specific to the CX bike? I noticed from your images that you didn't seem to have much luggage on the bike or mud guards etc.
Cheers

It was the bike that I had, and I travelled very light, I laid out the kit I wanted to take with me and then was vey ruthless, don't need that and don't need that etc. The only issue that I had was the gear cables that snapped on "The Shap".
No mud guards as they weren't needed.

Hope you enjoyed the blog.
