About

So I completed Lands end to John O Groats In May this year and you can read a day by day account in my Blog. But it really was an amazing journey and experience.
I intend to keep my blog up to date with various cycling based moans but feel free to browse and comment . My LEJOG daily blog is here all 974 miles of it !!!

Bio

I have been a recreational cyclist for many years now and have completed quite a few long distance rides & sportives including London to Paris, Bristol to London, Bath 100 & Cheddar 100 ,Lands End Sportive, Isle of Wight , Bournemouth to Brighton , Etape Ness, Etape Cymru and now I am an End to Ender πŸ™‚
I am also a Sky Ride Leader and quite a stroppy chap when it comes to cycling safety πŸ˜‰ and small minded motorists who often forget we cyclists are also human.

    Good on ya fella – sort of tempted to join you….?

  2. Nice one Neil….
    I rode LEJOG back in Sept 2008…You can read about it on my purpletraveller blog…
    I arrranged the trip with some friends and we raised money for the Dorset Kidney Fund.
    You will really enjoy the ride as we all did…
    I was interested that you would be doing this for Prostate Cancer UK, as a year after doing LEJOG I was diagnosed with prostate cancer myself..Since my treatment I have managed a number of long distance rides including Gibraltar back to the UK. I hope your family member who is currently battling the disease has the good outcome that I had….

      Hi Trevor thanks for your comments have read your Lejog blog its very informative indeed.Although must say am not so keen on being knocked off by a lorry!!!Really cant wait to get started but its trying to keep the miles up through the winter ready for an April start.

      I have done a few charity rides for Prostate Cancer Uk including London to Paris as I lost a family member to the disease about 4 years ago and now sadly my Dad is suffering. I hope your recovery is going well.

      Neil

    Good on you Neil. Wish you the best of luck. Anything i can do to help let me know.

  4. Hi Neil, I did LEJOG with Discover Adventure on a hybrid bike in May 2010 and really enjoyed it. It would have been easier on my newer road bike, but I didn’t have it then. My blog is here http://petelejog.blogspot.co.uk/
    I did lots of training – but the DA plan is probably good enough. Make sure you have enough rest days so you don’t get any muscle strains etc. Good luck – Pete

      Hi Pete great blog and really gives an insight into the trip with D A. Was wondering though you all seemed to get lost quite often do they not sign the route ahead of you? I did London to Paris with a different company and it was relatively well signed.

      • Pete Bradbury says:

        Yes they do mark some road junctions with little orange triangles, but they were easy to miss. We didn’t get lost that often though and some had Satnavs. I found it was good to stop regularly to take photos etc, rather than treating it like a race and getting to the hotels too early.

      • Pete Bradbury says:

        They do give you a road map and printed directions each day, but some ignored them and got lost!

      • Neil Bradley says:

        Ahhhh not too bad and I know what you mean about getting to the hotels too early, there is only so much you can do in a non-descript hotel/travel lodge !!!
        Really looking forward to getting started πŸ™‚

  5. Great site Neil, I like the way you can receive messages as well as leaving blogs – cool!! Just like next weeks weather lol. Looking forward to meeting you soon and trying to keep your rear wheel in my sights – Clem
