Always dreamt about cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats? Or maybe it's a new ambition. Either way, if you need help with:
then this site may provide the answers you need.
However, I would recommend you start with the introduction as it sets out the ethos of the site.
‘...I was finding the lack of information in a single source frustrating and then found this! Completely inspired me, made me feel like this is something I can achieve and gave me a laugh along the way. Excellent read for potential End to Enders!...’ - amazon.co.uk
You could lose days of your life searching the web. I know because I did! True, I eventually found everything I needed (or learnt the hard way on the road) but it took a long time.
I just wished that someone had written a planning guide which summarised the whole process for me. So I decided to write it myself: a comprehensive Land’s End to John O’Groats planning guide full of top tips for the cost of a couple of energy gels (electronic versions).
It's a great tool to get your dream tour under way. But don't take my word for it, the whole book is set out on this site. To view pages just click on the links at the bottom of the page or in the left hand menu.

In 2013 (and 2014!) I rode End to End again, this time in the more traditional direction from Land's End upward. On that occasion I was following a route spat out by Google Maps when they first started beta testing mapping for cycles. The plan was to follow the route no matter what to see how good a job Google did. This time I took lots of notes and pictures. I have written up the whole experience as a book that is available for download direct from this site as a pdf, .mobi or .epub file. This gives a much greater insight into what you might expect to experience along the route. You can access a free sample here (I will then send you a link, which might appear in your Junk folder) or a full copy for a small donation of £2.99 or £5 towards the upkeep of the website by clicking on the paypal buy button below. Once you have paid choose the paypal option to 'Return to Lands End to John O'Groats Cycle Route' which will direct you to the download page. Alternatively you can purchase a paperback or Kindle from Amazon by clicking here and then the relevant links.
