Undertake one of cycling’s epic journeys, covering almost 1,000 miles over 9 stunning days of riding from Land’s End in Cornwall to John O’Groats in northern Scotland.
Explore the best of the UK on two wheels, taking on this renowned journey from end to end.
Departing from the shores of Land’s End, we take on the many steep climbs of Devon and Cornwall, over the Severn Bridge and through to the picturesque Wye Valley. We continue our journey up through scenic towns and villages to the north, incorporating the stunning ascent of Shap Fell, the highest road pass in the UK and on to the borders. On day six we reach Scotland, where the scenery around Glen Coe and Loch Ness is simply breathtaking, passing Ben Nevis before finishing up our adventure at John O’Groats, with almost 1,000 miles in our legs.
Thousands of people undertake this challenge every year, and for good reason. The stunning route and scenery, beautiful roads and challenging distances make you fully appreciate the beauty of the United Kingdom.
This is a fully supported ride with pre-arranged feed stops every day. At all times our driver will only be a phone call away. We encourage people to ride as a group, particularly on the flat sections since group riding makes it much more enjoyable to cover the roughly 100 miles a day, however different abilities may make this difficult at times and you are always welcome to ride solo or with your friends if this is your preference.
We can transfer your bike from London to Penzance and back from John O’Groats to London for a cost of £70. If you require a transfer from London to the start and back from the finish please enquire – we may also be able to help.
Please contact us to register your interest or if you would like further information.
