Butchers, it's time to saddle up for a LEJOG!
The Worshipful Company of Butchers are organising a Charity Bike ride to raise money for our beloved Hall and The Master's personally chosen charity, Farms for City Children (Reg No 325120). If you are a keen cyclist or just want a new challenge, then this is for you!
On Monday 16th May 2022 a team of Butchers are cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats – LEJOG.
We are giving ourselves 12 days to do the 1500km trip, averaging 140km/day. We will be staying at 13 locations all organised by our professional tour guide and cyclists from Adventure Café. www.adventure-cafe.com
What is included:
- Bespoke Wakelet Site
- Route and navigational planning
- Event support vehicle with bike mechanic
- First Aid trained and qualified cycle leader
- Refreshment stops en route
- 13-night twin share accommodation (3/4* rated)
- Luggage Transfers
- Pre event information, advice and training guide
You will be cycling through some of Britain’s most scenic routes along the way and stopping for well-earned rests at pre-booked hotels and pubs.
The list of villages and towns we will be staying is as follows: Penzance, Looe, Taunton, Symonds Yat, Ironbridge, Manchester, Bowness of Windermere, Canobie, Edinburgh, Pitlochry, Inverness, Helmsdale, Thurso.
This truly epic adventure will be very hard work but, will be the most exhilarating feat you can do at the same time. Raising money for two very worthwhile causes.

There is also the option to join the team for a day leg or two, should you wish to join the team as they cycle near or through your area.
The cost of this is £100 for the first day and £50 per day thereafter. If you wish to stay over night with the LEJOG team, a list of the hotels will be provided so you can pre-arrange your own accommodation.
