Cape Wrath to Dover 1050 miles
In May 2010 I rode my second Britain End to End.
This time I did the ‘mirror image’ of the more conventional LEJOG, going top left to bottom right, from the remote lighthouse at Cape Wrath to the busy port of Dover.
I took in several Hebridean islands along the way.
My bike was a Raleigh Royal Tourer, bought a few days previously from a local store in London (where I lived at the time) for £395.
I camped, and also stayed in hostels and with friends who joined me at various stages en route. This was a sociable trip.
