NameLands End to John O'Groats Cycle Guide
DescriptionPaperback - Laminated
AuthorSimon Brown
Published byCicerone
Date Published6 Aug 2007
A classic cycle tour from Lands End to John O'Groats, which can be completed in a couple of weeks, but with enough leisure to enjoy the variety of British landscapes along the way. The trip takes the cyclist through much of Britain's most dramatic scenery, including the Cornish coast, Dartmoor, the Welsh Border country, the central Pennines, the Cumbrian fells and the Scottish Highlands, and takes in many attractive, off-the-tourist-track towns and villages.

The author has divided the 950-mile trip into 14 daily rides, averaging 68 miles a day on a variety of open roads and gentle cycle ways. Each section includes a detailed route map, relief map, route description, points of interest along the way, details of major towns and a summary of facilities. An informative introduction provides the basics of cycle touring and cycle maintenance for the less experienced cyclist.
