Product Description
Planning to cycle end to end? You'll need a route."The ideal gift for anyone thinking about cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats, even if to yourself."What is it all about?This book is not a traditional route book: it is supported by an online series of Google maps and gpx files designed to guide you across the country using a satellite navigation device, a smart phone or similar device that can navigate using gpx files. Links to these electronic files are contained within the book, along with instructions on how to access them and adjust the route to meet your needs.Accommodation on or near the route has been listed to assist your planning along with a list of bike shops that you may need in an emergency. The locations of these places as well as local food stores are saved on the Google Maps and the gpx files.A safe quiet routeI have cycled End to End three times.

After a year of researching and test riding, the result is a quiet route using mostly small roads and lanes and uses cycle ways, old railways and canal paths where possible.The route does contain a small amount of off-road cycling through beautiful countryside on some of the old railway lines and canal paths . However, I have ridden the route on a road bike (a Cube Agree GTC Pro with Schwelbe Marathon tyres) in October and June to show that it is a feasible route (see Land's End to John O'Groats - Cycling the Google Route for a travelogue of the adventure). However, I have also given instructions on how you can make a detour to avoid these parts - both en route or planning ahead.The route is designed to be used as a set of gpx files that are ready to go (download instructions in book). However, to add functionality and flexibility the book also contains instructions on how to amend the route to suit your exact requirements, e.g. to
