My First LEJoG.

Postby juicerail » 13 Oct 2014, 5:58pm

Hi all,

I completed my first LEJoG last month (kept forgetting to post the blog here) and had an excellent time! 1083 miles in 18 days unsupported.

Here it is (also my first go at writing a blog).

comments welcome☺

Well done! (Jealous)
Web blog site looks good too. I'll study it some more, and think distant dreams about when ....

Hi David. Good work! I'm looking forward to reading your blog which I've also bookmarked. Do you know if there's anyway I can change any settings so the blog reads from the top? On my iPhone I have to flit backwards and forwards. All the best...hc

Enjoyed reading your blog! We (four of us from the USA) also completed LEJOG in June 2014. We took our time, and did lots of sightseeing along the way. The weather was incredible! You mentioned about 2 hours of rain on your whole trip - don't think we had that much! Just a few light showers a couple of times ( well, it rained at night, once, in Launceston!) All that rain gear carried never got tested! (My blog is at crazyguyonabike.com/doc/2014LEJOG) I'm a bit jealous reading about all those getting ready for a 2015 LEJOG. Rarely a day goes by that I don't think about what a wonderful time we had, or relive some specific incident. Guess it's time to start planning another tour!

Congratulations! It sounds like a wonderful trip.

What's next?

Great map, BTW. Could you make it into an index to the blog?
Have we got time for another cuppa?
