Four friends are set to cycle up to 150 miles everyday for charity as they travel from Lands End to John O Groats.

They’ll set off on the 912m journey between Cornwall to Scotland on September 19 2021.

They’re aiming to travel to cycle between 110 – 150 miles per day to complete LEJOG in seven days days

The group’s journey will include:-

  • Lands End – Tiverton (146m)
  • Tiverton – Hereford (131m)
  • Hereford – Warrington (111m)
  • Warrington – Carlisle (131m)
  • Carlisle – Luss (129m)
  • Luss – Inverness (140m)
  • Inverness – John o Groats (124m)

Roger said: “The four of us have known each other and trained together for many years. Every year brought countless challenges, races and events in varying degrees.

“On this basis we agreed to raise money for charity and not just any charity. We have chosen to donate all the money raised to CAIS.

“CAIS is a registered charity and leading provider of personal support services for mental health and drug abuse in Wales.

“Please, if you have any spare pennies, it’s a worth while charity helping young people get back on the right track.

“We’ll be posting information on training rides and pictures up until the event and of course a diary during the week of the challenge.”
