The Adventure Junkies has a guide to the Best Camping Hammocks of 2017. One of these might be a good alternative to a bivy sack or pup tent.
It’s my fault. I pointed Joe to a slideshow of a beautiful custom touring bike (perhaps the one above), and he fell in love. Brian Chapman builds some of the most beautiful steel bicycles I’ve ever seen. And now, because of me, Joe’s on the waiting list for his own custom touring bicycle.
Joe will have to let us know if it will be ready in time for lejog. I know he doesn’t want to ride the bike he did for LtoP. Meanwhile, feast your eyes on these beauties!
We’re going to have to work out the logistics of getting our bodies and bikes to Land’s End and then back home from John o’Groats. (Given enough time, of course, we could cycle it … ) Friend Lee helpfully points out the Caledonian Sleeper as an overnight ride home from Inverness to London.
Some Commercial Resources
There are a lot of commercial resources for lejog, ranging from route map books to fully guided tours.
Google Maps Route
This route is straight from Google Maps by just searching the two end points and selecting “Bicycle.”
