OVERVIEWThis 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.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.  OVERVIEWComplete the Lands End to Johns O’Groats Cycle in only 14 days! Are you up to the challenge of cycling the length of Britain? This is a once in a lifetime trip and travels over 950 miles, taking in some of Britain’s finest scenery along the way. The End-to-End is an incredible journey to fundraise for, or simply challenge yourself and take part in an amazing outdoor experience.Aside from sleeping in some gorgeous parts of the UK (where there are no hotels!), our camping trip averages a little less than the B&B option at 74 miles a day. Often the camping adds a great deal to the experience and by the end of the trip, many see it as having been an integral element of their overall experience.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • 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 12-15mph. We will, of course, be stopping for a few breaks throughout the day, in addition to lunch breaks.

 

Single room option is £300, this must be stated upon booking.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The beautiful countryside of Southwest England
  • Magnificent views of the Lake District
  • The dramatic Scottish highlands and rugged coastline
  • The Lecht & Glenshee climbs in the Cairngorms
  • Getting off your bike each day!!

 

With 14 full days of cycling averaging 70 miles a day, this is a full-on trip but still well within the reach of most competent cyclists. Starting at the tip of Cornwall at Lands End, we head northwards (trying to keep the wind at our backs!) to John O’Groats in Scotland.
In the evenings we generally eat as a group at a local pub restaurant which we will organise, or alternatively order in a takeaway. You are, of course, able to do your own thing if you wish.

Single tent option £150, this must be stated upon booking.
