Anyone up for a cheap, unsupported, B&B/hostel LEJOG in May/June 2011?

    I'm toying with the idea of doing a lejog in May or June, but currently have no pals who are up for it as they're a bunch of slackers! I figured it'd be much more fun, and also a bit safer with a few people. I'm looking for 2/3 people ideally, that way we can save some £££ on sharing rooms etc.

    I'm MTB usually but am adding epics onto my todo list along with the purchase of a new bike - I though the LEJOG would be a good place to start!

    I've got a route pretty much planned - It'll be slightly longer, taking in a few more sights.

    It's also not going to be a 'race' - I want to do it over 10-12 days to take the time to see some stuff, relax and enjoy it - if I wanted to just blast out 1000 miles, I'd do laps of a carpark. Leaving a few more days also means that, being unsupported we can soak up and mishaps and make time by doing a longer day.

    Accom will be BnB/Hostel, as I don't want to stink for 2 weeks either - costing wise this means that we should be able to get it done for around £500 (including coach to Penzance and FLIGHT from Scotland) -I just can't afford a supported ride.

    As for me I'm fairly fit, and good for some laughs and exploring - it'd be great to do it with a couple of likeminded riders.

    If anyone's up for a holiday with a challenge, please do drop me an email.
