Land’s End To John O’Groats – 20 Days
A 21 day holiday to complete the ultimate UK challenge ride at an easier pace. Scenic route on quiet roads covering 1000 miles from the tip of Cornwall to the top of the Scottish mainland. A day off to relax in the Victorian spa town of Moffat!
We had been organising our two week trip for a number of years and had helped many people realise their dream of cycling the length of the UK. However we then realised that many people wanted to undertake the challenge of riding the ‘End to End’, but simply found the daily mileages required to do it in two weeks too high. Therefore, we introduced this three week holiday, offering shorter cycling days and a day off the bike in the middle of the trip.
The route takes you from Land’s End, along the north Cornish coast, across the wilds of Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor, and up through the famous Cheddar Gorge. After crossing the magnificent bridge over the river Severn we continue north through the lovely rolling countryside of Herefordshire and Shropshire, before skirting around the urban sprawl of Manchester. We then head through the beautiful countryside of northern England, passing through the Yorkshire Dales and the Eden Valley in Cumbria.
We cross over the Scottish border and continue across the Southern Uplands to Glasgow, passing through the centre of the city on local cycle paths. The route then takes you through the wilds of northern Scotland, passing close to Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain, and along the shore of Loch Ness on the way to the small settlement of John O’Groats on the northern tip of the Scottish mainland.
This is a B&B/small hotel based trip with a choice of standard or superior accommodation and includes a rest day in the small Scottish town of Moffat.
This is a fabulous ride and our cycling holiday groups are always great fun. We look after you all the way and provide a certificate – just to prove you did it!!!
This trip is also available as:
10 day, 2 week, 3 week or 4 week Independent Holiday.
