The concept of cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats is quite simple, get on your bike at one end of the country and ride to the other end.

I found an enormous quantity of sites and guides but most of them, whilst interesting, were of little help. I bought Land's End to John O' Groats route books that looked good but when I got into the detail I realised the proposed end to end route was not what I wanted. Eventually I found everything I needed, or learnt the hard way, but it took a long time. I just wished that someone had written: The Book I am Looking For That Has All The Answers I Need to Plan and Complete That Lands End to John O'Groats [or Vice Versa] Ride I've Always Talked About Doing But Never Got Around To But they hadn't. So, I decided to write it myself! (But the title was a bit of a mouth full so I changed it.) Reader comments: '...if you've never planned a ride like this before I would highly recommend this book...' '...really helpful and amusing enough to overcome my woefully short attention spa...' '...full of very practical tips and advice...' '...it's worth every penny...' '...excellent read for potential End to Enders...'

'...enough detail and humour to leave the reader with the optimism that they too can meet the challenge themselves...' '...packed with useful information and practical guidance...'

The book is an account of a journey using local service buses from Lands End in the deepest south west of England up to John OGroats in the far north east of Scotland. With the issue of free bus passes to all British citizens over the age of sixty, the author decided to maximise the use of his in undertaking this 1,230 mile trip. By way of being different, the author decided to take with him, his dog Archie, a Jack Russell / cairn terrier cross, as he too enjoys travelling. The book is not just a travel log across and up the length of Britain, but includes much historical and general information of towns and cities visited with time taken at the various stop-over points to look around and explore. In addition to the exploits of the authors dog, the book contains his thoughts and observations during the journey. Some of these are referred to as Rants made on the authors own admission as being a grumpy old man. The detailed planning and preparation of the trip is explained that deliberately took in many historic towns and cities. From Penzance, the route traverses England through Exeter, Bath Oxford, Leicester, Lincoln and then across the Humber and up the east coast by Scarborough, Durham, Newcastle and onto Berwick before crossing the border into Scotland. From here on, the bus journey followed the east coast through Edinburgh, over the Firth of Forth to Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness, Dornoch and Wick before reaching their final destination at John OGroats. The book has been written in a light vein and contains an element of humour. Hopefully, the reader will become a little more knowledgeable about this historic and beautiful island of ours by the end. It is certainly true that travel does broaden the mind.

“The furthest I’d ever cycled in a day was thirty miles; a one off. And I had no experience of camping or cycle maintenance. But all I could envisage was some romantic notion about becoming a cycling nomad: travelling wherever my heart desired, camping in the great outdoors, visiting beautiful and historic places, and searching for a place to call home. The universe though had other ideas.” An honest and detailed account by a first-time cycle tourist, riding from Lands’ End to John O’ Groats. Travel with Dawn as she describes the challenges of bicycle travel, bringing her journey to life from moments most magical, to most miserable: from deluge to heatwave, bustling cities to remote landscapes, friendly welcomes to threats of violence, Dawn experiences it all, transforming her from a woefully unprepared novice, attempting a one-off challenge, and into a life-long advocate of bicycle travel. For aspiring cycle tourists and armchair travellers alike, read a travelogue of a journey through Britain, told from the unique perspective of a young woman on a bicycle, who decides to go it alone.

This book is written from the pages of the diary kept by the author on her walk, the diary being written every night or perhaps the next day while all the experiences were fresh in her mind. You can read it and "live the walk" as you do so. Following the spring north meant enjoying the sight of each new spring flower and sight or sound of birds as the journey continued northward through ever changing landscape. Although a stress fracture to the neck of the femur delayed the completion of the walk until the following spring, this did not seem to break the continuous nature of the journey; "It's still there - Keep smiling!" kept her looking forward to the next stage of the walk. She met some delightful people on the walk, enjoyed the company of some good friends for parts of it and enjoyed the "bliss of solitude" for much of it, appreciating being alone in wild places but not lonely. Having walked and enjoyed the scenery from the south of Cornwall to the north of Scotland, she was sorry to finish.

A dark comedy based on the true story of one man's quest for immortality. Matthew Moore has received the worst news of his life - he only has one year to live, and he wants to do something he can finally be proud of. Ten Bodies, Two Bikes and a Boil follows the diary of one man as he cycles the length of the country, from Lands End to John O'Groats, dragging his father-in-law; his Bike Buddy, with him. A man who is grumpy, overweight, unfit, with knackered knees and high blood pressure. A man more likely to die than succeed. Over three weeks, Moore tells of his battle through the country. A light-hearted and jovial tale to begin with, Moore appears to forget about his fatal diagnosis, but quickly becomes envious of other people. What starts as a simple cycle ride soon becomes a personal crusade, one final attempt to live forever. This book is a must read for anyone contemplating the challenge and includes daily maps, road and traffic conditions as well as the contour of the route.
