Next to nothing can give you more of a sense of scale than the J.O.G.L.E. journey. A roughly 1000 mile route that in cycling terms is actually very manageable. A brilliant opportunity to stay in some of the many wonderful hostels, bunkhouses and camping barns in England and Scotland.
A delightful hostel just out of the friendly market town of Bishops Castle. Just outside the Shropshire Hills AONB. Wonderful views are abundant in this part of the UK. Being about three quarters of the way through the J.O.G.L.E. at this point taking a minute to step back and take in the journey is often a wise move. Foxholes offers comfortable accommodation that has secure bike storage. A great stopping point in your journey.
