Land’s End to John O’Groats
We are proud to offer our 16 day, 1000 mile classic Lands End to John o’Groats cycle tour. This is a fully supported holiday aimed at cyclists who want to take a leisurely approach to this epic journey.
Our trip is based on Nick Mitchell’s best selling guidebook, The End to End Cycle Route, and 2017 saw Nick ride his 23rd LEJOG with us.
His guidebook serves as the ‘hard copy’ route notes for the tour and we also have GPX files for those riders who wish to navigate by GPS. Wherever possible we utilise country lanes and national cycle network paths, and try to avoid main roads. We ride at a pace that is well within the reach of a fit and competent cyclist. Our Lands End to John o’Groats tour is also perfect for newcomers to cycling or riders returning to cycling after a lay-off.
We start each day of the LEJOG at around 8.45am with a morning briefing where the tour leader will explain the day’s route and the traffic and weather conditions that you are likely to encounter. You will also be briefed on the place where we will be having our lunch stop, we usually provide a healthy picnic/sandwiches or if the weather is inclement we will make use of one of the many cafes and pubs that lie along the route.
The support van will be on hand assisting with the day to day running of the tour and towards the end of each day transporting your luggage to your accommodation. Wherever possible during the course of each day we stop the van in a safe place and offer hot drinks and snacks. On the final day of the tour we have a shortish 51mile ride from Bettyhill to John o’Groats and then a coach journey down to Inverness for our final meal in the Capital of the Highlands before everyone departs for home on Sunday morning. We can arrange to get your bike shipped home at the end of the tour for a small extra fee.
