I’ve finalised the probable route for the LEJOG now. Including some major changes in the southwest. We’re now going to do a more north coast route via St Ives, Hayle and Perranporth.
The idea is to join the Camel Trail at Padstow and follow that to Wenford Bridge before skirting Bodmin Moor and heading along the old A30 to Okehampton.
After that the route is similar to before, it now goes through Bristol and over the Clifton Suspension Bridge and a more easterly route near the Welsh Border through Leominster and Ludlow. North of this the route is identical to before apart from a slight reroute through Blackburn and Carlisle.
The distance is about the same but the ascent has reduced a bit. We’re also planning to do a short first day to St Ives from Land’s End if the train is on time!
