Looking for the challenge of a lifetime?
Across 9 epic days, Babble Ride Across Britain covers 980 miles of the most beautiful and scenic landscapes accessible on two wheels. There is no better way to travel from Land’s End to John O’Groats!
Since 2009, RAB has enabled thousands of riders to experience the magic of cycling end-to-end of the UK, as well as raising millions of pounds for charity.
To protect the experience for our future riders we have made the decision to move from an annual event to one that happens every other year.
The ‘End to End’ has been an iconic cycling challenge since before the Tour de France was even a glint in Henri Desgrange’s eye. It always has and always will be a true test of stamina and will. The reason it has stood the test of time as a challenge? The simplicity of going from South to North and the breathtaking variety of scenery it passes through.
We guide you from the rugged coastline of Cornwall to the rolling hills and valleys of the North of England right up to the barren majesty of the Scottish highlands. We don’t believe there is another event in the world that manages to string together such a range of moorlands, hidden green valleys, winding back lanes, stunning coastal roads and historic sites.
We understand that deciding to cycle for 9 days is a big commitment to make, so we offer a variety of packages to suit you. From the original 9-day classic to the 3-day Scotland package, along with corporate, charity and hotel options, there is something for everyone.

It did just that, I was challenged mentally and physically but felt supported the entire way either by RAB staff or by fellow cyclist some of whom have become friends as a result of going through the experience together."
