Over the past few years I’ve cycled many hundreds of miles through some of the loveliest parts of southern and eastern England, mostly with a couple of friends. I’ve made my way from Land’s End to John O’Groats (or vice-versa) by three different and somewhat unusual routes, I've travelled a fair bit of the Sustrans National Cycle Network, and I've explored almost every country lane and bridleway in my home county of Surrey and many in neighbouring East Hampshire.
I've put together this website to help you share the fun I've had. Whether you're planning an End to End trip of your own or just an afternoon's cycling, I hope the information you'll find here will be useful.
