Oxford to Leeds

start: Oxford, Jericho [SP505071]
finish: Leeds, Yeadon [SE208403]
distance: 361 km

I few years ago I had to go to Yeadon for work, which is close to Leeds, and decided to cycle there in a weekend. To avoid any serious hills I chose my route East of the Pennines, which worked out very well. It took me three days in the end.

great way for saving money, haha, I want to do something similar and my question is how easy or complicate is camping if you did it.

cheers

I did camp indeed. Not complicated, just make sure you find some campsites on the web, on your route, before you set of.

thank you for the advise. Next week I do:Manchester-York-Birmingham, 4 days and I wasn´t sure if camping in the middle of the field (I´m not sure if it is legar) or in a proper campsite.
