The YHA Chester has now closed. So when planning your End to End cycle please bear this in mind. It’s very sad news, I really enjoyed my stay there, last year while doing the End2End cycle.
Since given this website a new look last weekend. I have been working on adding lots of new contains to the website.
So far I have added the following:-
- Accommodation – The accommodation that I stayed in while doing the cycle.
- Contact me – This page really speaks for it’s self.
- Checklist – List of the stuff I took while doing the End to End cycle.
- Weather – Links to useful weather websites.
I have updated the JOGLE route pages, so each day now contains the current weather for that section of the cycle.
Coming soon GPS route data, so you can download my JOGLE End to End cycle route to your own GPS.
You can now read about our cycle on Peterborough’s Heart FM at www.heartpeterborough.co.uk/Article.asp?id=1446429.
We went to the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium, to do some photos for the Peterborough Evening Telegraph. The news article should be in the ET on Friday (7th Aug 2009). It should also be on there website at www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk.
While their we also did some telephone interviews with Lite FM and Peterborough’s Heart FM but we’re not too sure when they will get aired.
Also we would like to say a very, big thanks again to the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium for sponsoring us.
That’s the whole of the route now been sorted for the End to End cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End (JOGLE). I would like to say a very, very big thank-you to Ashley, who give up most of his Sunday to help me get it all done in time.
