Ruby’s cockpit

You will find here, the full list of posts that relate to my LEJOGLE 2020 world record attempt.

The Ride

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
