Product Description

About the Author

I cycle to work, where I am employed as an IT Project Manager, a job I am eminently unqualified to do: I qualified as a solicitor (lawyer). I work diligently whilst thinking about cycling and writing. Then I cycle home and write. Or at least I would do if it wasn't for all the kids and dogs and cats and stuff to deal with. Still, writing does sometimes happen.

Read this book with an open mind but quickly realised that it covered the bases that no other book does. It's not really a route guide it's a 'you guide' on clothing, eating, equipment and lots of other essential areas. On reading the book I realised what I had done wrong in my previous failed attempt and it gave me lots of confidence to have another 'much better prepared' attempt in 2013. If you are thinking of the End to End I highly recommend this book.

Just completed the End to End with my 13-year old son. 945 miles in 12 days unsupported. There is absolutely no way We would have managed it if it was not for Roy's highly informative help in this book, and LEJOG the Safe Route. His entertaining style makes it a great read even if you don;t ever get round to doing the ride.

Probably the most useful component, day in day out, was the route guide that I downloaded and used with Cyclometer, an app on my iPhone. It meant we could follow a map without the need for a paper map (although we followed Roy's advice and took printouts of the route on a dozen sheets of paper.

But the book itself was my inspiration. It gave me the confidence that I could do the ride. and the certainly that I could do the ride with my young lad. It was life-changing for both of us.

Having done the Welsh 3000 and an Ironman, I still found this a very useful and well written book to enable the planning and understanding of the challenges involved in a Jogle.

The nutrition and hydration chapters, which is key to any endurance activity, are very concise and avoid the evangelical statements that are generally put forward.

Best and quickest read I have found so far.

I am not a cyclist but was gifted this book by my son who is a keen cyclist. I am a keen reader though and raced through this. I was surprised to find that it was actually very entertaining and quite funny. The book is packed with useful information and practical guidance for anyone that might be thinking for doing the ride. The author seems to cover everything. At least, as a non cyclist I can't think of anything that isn't dealt with. In fact, there's a lot more to do than I would have thought.

I was particularly interested in the travelogue section at the end where the author relates their experiences on their own ride. Although not very long it has inspired me to try some other books about cycling and perhaps other travel type books.

In brief: if you've never planned a ride like this before I would highly recommend this book.

I am a biking newbie (again) with a view in my later years to have a shot at LEJOG. Mr Wood's website led me to this book of his which is essentially the same material as his website. A good well-written down-to-earth practical guide on the do's and don'ts of cycling LEJOG - including planning and preparation as well as the ride. An excellent reference that is at least not dimming my enthusiasm and in fact increasing my confidence to have a go. He has 2 other books: 'LEJOG - the Google Route' and 'End to End - a safer way' - the latter I would be tempted to follow closely.

Currently I am in mid-planning for a summer 2015 Lands End to John 'O Groats adventure. I have checked out a few planning guides but this is the best. So why? It's written in an engaging, humorous style, yet well structured and concise without being too brief. I know more about, and actually understand GI thanks to Royston. It is well worth the modest investment if you doing or thinking of undertaking this fine challenge.

I also recommend his Safe routes guide, which i am basing my route from. He has ridden the route multiple times in both directions and really knows a thing or tow about the safest and most enjoyable way to tackle it.

I wish you happy planning and riding. I may even see you on the way

I downloaded this guide in PDF format, and it has inspired me to do my own end to end. I have found the information and tips on training and preparation for this cycle run invaluable. A must buy for anyone wishing to complete the run in the near future. As the title of this review shows, I intend to do it in 2015... I'm 50 years old and this is at the top of my 'things to do before I'm no longer able' list!!
