Holiday Information

The ultimate road cycling holiday in the UK - that really is the only way to describe our Land’s End to John O’Groats tour. From the very toe to the very tip! The entire length of mainland Britain is a journey that every cyclist should experience at least once in their lifetime. Over 1,000 miles, through 3 countries in just 14 days of riding.
Our carefully-chosen route avoids heavy traffic and busy towns as much as possible and takes us well off the beaten track. Sure enough, our 'flagship' British cycling tour is something of a challenge, but for many that’s what it’s all about and what wonderful rewards you’ll get along the way. There is simply no better way to experience our green and pleasant land.
We travel north from Land’s End in order to take advantage of prevailing winds, we follow the Cornish coast, ride past the stunning wilds of Dartmoor and cross the River Severn into Hereford. Heading further north we skim the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria and cross the border into Scotland. Before long we’re riding through the rugged Cairngorms toward Inverness, before reaching the north coast and heading for John O’Groats.
This fully guided and supported cycling tour, with GPS units supplied, allows you to take things at your own pace and soak up some of the best countryside that the British Isles have to offer. What’s more, we’ll carry your bags and feed you along the way, luxury!  
If you're looking for a more leisurely ride, or if you just want to take your time to soak in the magnificent views along the way, then check out our 3 week version with a couple of options available throughout the year.
