Coastal Trip Route

The Figure of 8 UK & Ireland Circumnavigation -  Trip Description:

A while back after doing a JOGLE and several other trips I wanted to do something a little more adventurous, however I wanted to see my own country before venturing long distance abroad.   The idea began with the idea of cycling around Britain and I saw this had been done before and I wanted to put my own touch on the trip to make it more personal for me.  Eventually I came up with circumnavigating Ireland as well then I realised that I was doing a figure of 8, I researched and couldn't find anyone who has done this before, a circumnavigation of Ireland and the UK so that's was it I had my goal:  Circumnavigate the UK and Irish coast and I have called it a figure of 8!

Here is my proposed itinery:   92 days cycling:  I am going to start cutting and pasting the individual maps for these (time permitting)
