You will find here, the full list of posts that relate to my LEJOGLE 2020 world record attempt.
At the end of each post there is an image of the route actually ridden, and also a link to the You Tube video of each day that forms the basis of the submissions to Guinness World Records for evidence. Perfect for sending you to sleep each evening, since they are designed as evidence rather than entertainment. You have been warned!
Day 1 – An belting tail wind, and an awesome start to the ride
Day 2 – Hunger, wrong turns, a walk in the woods and a very late finish
Day 3 – Saddle sores, Storm Francis and sleep deprivation
Day 4 – A slow start, Loch Lomond, and an awesome mountain sunset
Day 5 – Loch Ness, more rain, and a silky smooth road to the north
Day 6 – John O’Groats, more sleep issues, more wind
Day 7 – Support crew changes, another mountain sunset
Day 8 – Company on the ride, silliness and a border crossing
Day 9 – No support, alternative routes, lots of company
Day 10 – Super Heroes, lost things, the return of the Hubster, another border
The finish – Sleep Deprivation, powernaps, a police escort, the final sunset
