We are sponsored by Komoot, who have helped us create our route for each of the 14 days.WHY IS OUR ATTEMPT A WORLD'S FIRST?Traditionally JOGLE would mean cycling from John O’Groats the northernmost tip of Scotland to Lands End the southernmost tip of UK. Completing this journey would mean one has cycled the entire length of mainland UK.Our cycle is across both land and sea connecting the Orkney Islands to the Scilly Islands and is expected to take us 14 days in total!Our attempt can be split into 4 stages:1). We start at the northernmost tip of the Orkney Islands a group of islands sitting just north of mainland Scotland and will cycle the length of the Orkney down to its southernmost tip. This will take a single day.2). Once at the southernmost tip of the Orkney Islands we will change our bikes for water bikes and cycle across the sea (Pentland Firth) reaching John O’Groats the northernmost tip of mainland Scotland. This will take 2-4hours on a single day and it is essential we attempt the crossing in good weather conditions favourable for our water bikes.3). We will then change back to our original land bikes we used in the Orkney Islands and will be bike packing, which means we are cycling with all the equipment needed for a self-supported journey of over 950 miles. This part of our journey will begin from the northeastern tip of Scotland, John o’ Groats, and end at the southwestern tip of England, Land’s End. We estimate this stage to take us 12 days.4). The final stage we switch our bikes back to water bikes to cycle from Lands End to the Scilly Isles the southernmost isles of the UK, this is expected to take an entire day and could even go into the night. This is where we will finish the cycle come and join us for celebrations at the end!
