247: Norry and Noz ride LEJOG 2011

Preparation for the trip is key

Thanks to Dave Barter for forwarding the link for this site.

This site records how Martin and Ian Norris prepared for and complete the classic cycling trip of Land’s End to John O’Groats in April / May 2011.  As well as  meeting the physical and mental challenge of the trip, they raised a decent sum of money for the Teenage Cancer Trust  charity

Both Norry and Noz only started cycling seriously in 2010 and found that they both wanted to take on the Land’s End to John O’Groats challenge.

Preparing for the trip was key, and something which was harder for Ian due to an arrival of his third child, the lovely Milly.  They left Land’s End on Friday 22nd April 2011 averaging around 70 miles cycling per day – a total distance of just over 1,000 miles.  They climbed over 33,000 feet in that time, which is 6.3 miles and higher than Mt. Everest.


Their route is based around that described Simon Brown’s Cicerone guide book. This follows more country roads than main roads and whilst it is a longer distance, is much more pleasant.
