This is an absolutely classic ride, from one end of the UK to another! Over ten days cycling you’ll be covering nearly 1000 miles through some of the most glorious scenery England and Scotland has to offer. This is a fully supported and guided trip, staying in hotels/B&B’s throughout.
The route begins at the most westerly mainland point of the UK, Lands End. The first few days are pretty tough with plenty of big hills, but we assure you, Cornwall and Devon has enough scenery to make up for it!
From the southwest, our route heads north into Shropshire and Cheshire before entering the north of England and into the wilds of Scotland. Our cycling ends at John O’Groats, the furthest point from your start point, Lands End, on the UK mainland.
• The rolling hills of southwest England
• Fabulous cycling through the Shropshire & Cheshire plains
• Skirting the edge of the Lake District
• Cycling through the Scottish Highlands
• Secluded beaches and the rugged seascape of the north coast of Scotland
• Reaching John O’Groats!
We average 97 miles a day on this trip and whilst this is certainly not a trip to race, the pace is dictated by your cycle leader. This tends to be between 12-14mph. We will, of course, be stopping for a few breaks throughout the day, in addition to lunch breaks.
