This is me, Matt, looking confident (but then again it's still only March!). Still need to lose some weight before the off. I'm a Self Employed IT Contractor that has reach the time in his life to have a mid life crisis. LEJOG has long been an ambition (originally thought about walking it but can't afford the time off). Recently found the cycling bug, but also found I need to explore not just cycle roads in my local area. Inspired by Long Way Round/Down this is the first of hopefully many adventures.
