Welcome to the LEJOG blog of Karon and Bob Bending. We updated the blog daily (most days) as we rode through the wettest summer on record, from Land’s End to John O’ Groats over five and a half weeks. In that time we managed to raise over a thousand pounds for our chosen charity, Arthritis research UK, donated by relatives, friends, work mates, cycling buddies and well-wishers along the way. We were even given a small donation by two very inebriated ‘gentlemen of the road’!

Below are the daily entries – of course, the earliest is at the bottom, so you’ll need to scroll down the list of routes on the right to find our first day. Happy reading.

If you’re planning an easy LEJOG and want to know more about our trip, you’re welcome to email me.
