lejog from Stirling to Pitlochry
 

LEJOG – Route Summary

Our route for Land's End to John O'Groats was mapped using mapmyride and then transferred on to our Garmin Edge 800 GPS device. The statistics below are as up-to-date as possible, but will be updated once the complete review of the journey has been made. Climb categorisation is based on mapmyride's classification (they may not be as bad once on them, here's hoping).

The category ratings as per mapmyride* must be at least 500 meters in length with an average grade of 3% or more* with a climb score ranging between 5 through to HC. 5 is the easiest and HC is the hardest.
