It's pretty hard to get your head around 75,065 miles. Just how far is that, in a way you can understand?

Lands End to John O'Groats

This takes you end to end the length of Britain. It is considered an endurance right of passage for many long distance cyclists. At approx 875 miles (subject to route taken) it takes a typical cyclist 10 days to cycle at 80-90 miles a day, 2 weeks if they have 1 or 2 days off.  (or see this version)

So now you've got your head round Lands End to John O'Groats. The image below shows you how many LEJoGs you'd need to ride to cover 75,065 miles. We hope this gives you a sense of scale. Oh, and because it is within a year, each LEJoG distance has to be covered in 4 days, with no rest between each one.
