960 miles of breathless sightseeing across some of the most beautiful scenery Britain has to offer.
The full route is 960 miles broken in to 9 daily stages averaging 106 miles a day. Whether you call the UK home or not, the ride is one of the classic cycling challenges on the planet. It takes in the most beautiful parts of the country from barren moorlands and majestic highlands to lush green valleys, winding back lanes and stunning coastal roads.
We aim to find the most interesting and varied route over the 9 days. Britain is beautiful but it is also hilly. Riders climb around 15,000m over the 9 days, that is around 13 times up Alpe d’Huez. This may sound like a lot, but with the right training it is well within reach of most people’s capabilities.
The route is designed by passionate bike riders for passionate bike riders
We have an ace up our sleeves in Route Director Andy Cook. Andy has done more miles on the bike in this country than most people have done in a car and if you think the London taxi driver’s knowledge is impressive sit Andy down with an A-Z of the UK and you’ll be amazed. Our route takes in wonderfully calm back roads for the vast majority of the 960 miles, but given the length of the ride it is impossible to stay on deserted roads all the time. Andy and his team have carefully devised routes around the country’s towns and cities where necessary and we believe it is the safest and most beautiful route you’ll find.
