LEgistics & LEJOGraphy

You can all breathe a long-held sigh of relief as we finally embark on LEJOG this weekend and the end of us boring you all senseless on the topic is nigh. Until then, stick with us if you can. If we’ve somehow managed to keep your attention to this point then we hope the unfolding action over the next couple of weeks might be your reward. For now though, we simply hope to set out some information as to where we will be each day and how you can track our progress.

To help with this we’ve made a handy table below showing all the dates and where we will be starting and ending each day. Feel free to print or screenshot for instant access.

Neither of us giving up our careers to become artists any time soon

In terms of following us – Sal will be posting Insta stories (@sallyaugustajohnston) at very regular intervals (apologies in advance for any face to camera scenes) and we hope to blog each day on here with a quick rundown and selection of pics. It would be great to hear from you whilst we’re en route so please do get in touch. We will be using the hashtag #strongforstrong in case you would like to follow that or indeed use it in your public messages of support.

We are also due to take over the Altura instagram on Wednesday 29th August so follow them too (@alturacycling) to see our best attempts at being “influencers” for a day in some snazzy Altura kit!

If you have any questions please let us know before Friday and thank you again everyone for all your continued support – we really could not be doing this without you.

Finally, if you’d like to sponsor our efforts please donate to the Fiona Strong Memorial Fund here. We might sound relaxed and breezy in this blog (at least that is what we have aimed for) but we are under no illusions as to how challenging the next couple of weeks will be, and equally how the strength required for us to get from Lands’ End to John O Groats pales in comparison to the strength Fi showed during her illness.
