The planned route is to safely take me from Land’s End to John O’Groats in as short a distance as possible, covering approximately 150 miles a day. There is an “official” route, but as I’m not intending on breaking the record, I’ll be taking the shortest route I can! I’ll mostly use cycle paths and quiet roads, however I will also be opportunistic with busier roads at quieter times of the day and where weather permits. Furthermore, if I wake up and the forecast is sunny with a 25mph tailwind I’ll do what I can to make the most of it, as the next day might be a 25mph headwind with sleet!
Obviously to do this there will need to be a bit of flexibility in my schedule and route so it goes without saying that the sections i’ve detailed are a rough guide only and if you want to follow me on the route, please go to the tracker page on this site, and keep an eye on twitter/facebook for updates.
