It's possible to say anything you want, and "publish" it online ............ who's to say it is truth?

First did a JOGLE in 1994, then in 2006 I did LEJOG and Back again.
2010 had me do JOGLE on the Chopper.

I supported a ride in 2007 when half a dozen riders did LEJOG in five days. I drove a van.
LE to Bristol on the first day! 200miles.
Then day two Chester, day three Moffatt, day four Kingussie, day five JOG.

It's all truth, but "what is truth?" :?

If I did it I'd brag about it -- I have cycled right around the entire coastline of a country in one day -- IOM :lol: and I was knackered at the end of that. ( have video )

There'a distinction between truth and untruth, and a distinction between being online and other media. But those two distinctions are distinct. A lot of untruths were and are published using traditional media such as speech and printing on dead trees.

Morning Phil!

I did a lift backwards!!!

A bit like if you had a mechanical and got a lift to a bike shop but started where you broken down... I think that's acceptable.

Anyway Mick F asked me to ask you if you have done lejog...?!

Ps he didn't btw!

Did you move down to Cornwall in the end?

Sorry for thread drift!
