Our LEJOG route is finalised (for now). Hundreds of hours have been amassed reading blogs, forums and soaking up the words of wisdom of legends such as Mick F. Riding the route (all 976.51 miles) will be easier than planning it. Anyway, here are the 9 days of riding, it now feels like OUR route. Please feel free to comment.
