LEJOG ‘End to End’ – 9 Day Challenge
This trip offers the challenge of riding the ‘End to End’ in a challenging nine days. Full back up is provided – luggage transfer, support vehicle and mechanic.
This trip uses a slightly different route from our other ‘End to End’ holidays – more direct, though still very pleasant riding – and the trip is aimed at fit, experienced cyclists who want to ride the ‘End to End’ as quickly as possible.
Starting from Land’s End the route takes you through southern Cornwall, then around Bodmin, over Dartmoor, and into Devon. You continue across the Black Hills into Somerset, passing around the edge of Bristol. After crossing the magnificent bridge over the River Severn you continue north through the lovely rolling countryside of Herefordshire and Shropshire, before skirting around the urban sprawl of Manchester, and heading around the Forest of Bowland and the Cumbrian Lake District.
After crossing the Scottish border the route takes you across the Southern Uplands, around the edge of Glasgow, then through the Grampian Mountains to the shore of Loch Linnhe. You then continue through Fort William and along the Great Glen, passing Loch Ness on the way. The final section of the route takes you around Dornoch Firth and along the coast to the small settlement of John O’Groats on the northern tip of the Scottish mainland.
There are no rest days on this holiday. We look after you all the way and provide a certificate for those that complete the trip.
This trip is also available as:
10 day, 2 week, 3 week or 4 week Independent Holiday.
