Lands End to JoG, Cyclist’s Touring Club

This year we shall be doing  The Lands End to John O’Groats [LEJoG ] three times with a 2820, 706MKIIG and the trusty E92D in my van.

I’m a tour leader for the Cyclist’s Touring Club, the biggest British cyclist’s club and the oldest in the world.

We shall be escorting about 22 cyclists each time, around 50% of which are undertaking this challenge for various charities.

The dates are 15 May to 2 June3 July to 21 July and 4 Sept to 22 Sept.

I’ll hopefully be working back through GB7YD from D-Star repeaters along the way.

Relatives and friends of the cyclists (as well as amateur/aprs followers) will be able to follow our progress on throughout the schedules.

The route is unusually hard with many hills, it’s probably the hardest LEJoG route being used by anyone.

Another post will follow outlining our route and most likely D-Star repeaters to work us on as we progress.
