Another candidate for Land’s End to John O’Groats? You must be joking!

Imagine taking the longest, most circuitous route, i.e. following the west coast of England, Wales and Scotland to the top right corner. Then come back down the other side, again following the coast roads all the way around the east of Scotland, the east and south coast of England. Before returning to the start point, don’t forget to add all of Ireland, The Isle of Man, The Shetland Isles, The Orkneys, The Western Isles of Scotland, The Channel Isles, Anglesey, The Scillies and the Isle of Wight. While you’re at it, don’t forget to call in at every RNLI Lifeboat Station to say hello and have your chart signed. Around 8,000 miles.

That’s what I’m doing.

October 2015:

20151023_094955First 1,250 miles cycled and 57 Lifeboat Stations signed off. Time for a winter break before tackling Scotland.

September 2016:

20170103_095544-1After 103 days on the road, 5,300 miles cycled and 193 Lifeboat Stations visited, that leaves just the small matter of the remaining 45 Lifeboat Stations and 2,000-or-so more miles around the coast of all Ireland (ROI and NI).  Start date for this final phase: 12 April 2017
