Heading North, Walk Report, LEJOG

Fit To Ride

Awareness of the outside world. A popular activity on foot or by bike. For the armchair traveler, surfing on LEJOG or JOGLE will turn up multiple books & blogs full of advice & descriptions. Unlike Route 66, there does not seem to be a set route. Start here. End here. Have at it.

[Walking Virtually, Land’s End to John O’Groats] IRL & virtual mileage

Vicarious Tour
Gleaned from screenshots & Internet research as we went along.

Phase one, Cornwall – Scenic. Touristy. Searches turned up endless listings for places to stay.

Phase two, England – Highway. Straight up the center of the island. So much gray.

Phase three, Scotland – Greenery. Sometimes fields but mostly a tunnel of trees. Refreshing at first but monotonous in its own way after a while. So much green.

Phase four, Scottish Highlands – Scenic. Dramatically flat with coastal cliffs. Looked like a great place to go be moody for a weekend.
