My End to End cycle route data is now on Strava

Strava logoI’ve just uploaded the data from the End to End cycle that I did back in August 2009 to Strava.

Scotland’s cycling routes to get £6m revamp

Scotland’s cycle path network is to get a £6m revamp, which will include improvements to the Land’s End to John O’Groats route.

The famous route will be upgraded from Barnton Junction to the Forth Road Bridge.

The money will also be used to create more cycle paths in Glasgow ahead of the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

Read it on BBC News website.

 

New way of displaying data from the cycle

Just playing around with a new way of displaying data from the End2End cycle that I did in August 2009. This data is made using a WordPress plugin called Gpx2Graphics. I really like it so far, since you can also view the route with google street view.



Please can you let me know what you think by posting comments below.

Now with more useful information

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.
