This is an outline map of the route

The official Road Records Association record for rider on a conventional bicycle is 44 hours, 4 minutes and 20 seconds, set by Gethin ButlerĀ  in 2001

A more typical cycling time is ten to fourteen days. and many cyclists publish their own reports with details of their route and an account of their trip

From 1 to 4 March 2010, David Walliams, Jimmy Carr, Fearne Cotton, Miranda Hart, Patrick Kielty, Davina McCall and Russell Howard cycled in a team relay from John o' Groats to Land's End to raise money for Sport Relief. But they took turns!
