John O’ Groats to Lands End – The Route

John O’ Groats to Lands End – The Route


While planning my John O’ Groats to Lands End ride I decided that I wanted to follow the west coast as closely as possible. To make sure I achieved this I set about hand crafting a 2,500 route that made use of as many coastal roads as possible. It would have been really great if google maps had a feature to map out the scenic route for you but sadly it doesn’t. I spent about 1 and a half months mapping out the route and a further 1 month refining and improving the accuracy of the route. The route is extremely accurate and in most cases was mapped at only a few hundred feet of elevation in Google Earth.

Below I have included download links to my route along with hundreds of marker pins detailing cycle routes and places to visit. Feel free to take a copy for yourself, I hope some of you will find them useful for mapping out your own adventure.

Route Sections

My GPS can only display a limited number of way points on a single track and the full route is far to long to be displayed so I cut the full route down into 7 smaller sections. After reaching the end of a section simply load up the next one on your GPS unit.

We're Zoe & Stewart and we've been cycling around the world since March 2019.

This blog was born in 2017 when Stew cycled a 2,500 mile, solo John O' Groats to Land's End (JOGLE) along the west coast of the UK.

At the time Stew was planning a world cycling tour for his 30th birthday, but his plans changed when he met me and invited me along on this trip of a lifetime. I took no hesitation in saying "YES I'd love to come". We quickly threw ourselves into a 1,022 mile bike tour of the UK to make sure I enjoyed it - needless to say - I love it!

We've since cycled over 20 countries together and I love to share our adventures on this blog.

You can also download our tried and tested routes, and soon we're bringing you gear reviews, guides, bike equipment lists, reviews and more.

I hope you enjoy the blog!
