Something I have fancied doing for years.
Would any other AO'ers fancy an organised Alfa trip from Lands End to John O'Groats (or vice verca) raising money for the charity or charities of your choice. I'm sure its something that could attract a lot of attention from local press and poss National. Good for Alfa, AO and of course the charities.
Land's End to John o' Groats
(abbreviated LEJOG or LE-JOG, or JOGLE when covered from North to South) is the traversal of the whole length of the island of Great Britain between two extremities; in the southwest and northeast. The distance by road is 874 miles (1,407 km) and takes most cyclists ten to fourteen days; the record for running the route is nine days. Off-road walkers typically walk 1,200 miles (1,900 km) and take two or three months for the expedition. Two much-photographed signposts indicate the distance at each end.
- Land's End is the extreme southwestward (but not southern or western) point of Great Britain, situated in western Cornwall at the end of the Penwith Peninsula.
- John o' Groats is the traditionally acknowledged extreme northern point of Scotland, in northeastern Caithness. The actual northernmost point is at nearby Dunnet Head. The point which is actually furthest by road from Land's End is Duncansby Head, about 2 miles (3.2 km) from John o' Groats.
Any ideas for places to visit on the route.... ?
It would take a couple of days to do the whole loop or break it down and take a week. Open to idea's.
Oh..... and a good idea to look at this too. Car Breakdown Cover : AA Membership from £27 - The AA
