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. You will receive a fully supported, leisurely approach to this epic journey.
Your trip is based on Nick Mitchell’s best selling guidebook: The End to End Cycle Route, and in 2017 Nick completed his 23rd ‘LEJOG’ with us.
You’ll follow country lanes and national cycle network paths wherever possible, avoiding main roads. We ride at a pace that is well within the reach of a fit and competent cyclist. You’re perfect for our Lands End to John o’Groats tour if you’re a newcomer to cycling or returning after a break, although is still open to everyone.
You’ll start each day of the ‘LEJOG’ at around 8.45am with a morning briefing. 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 bad we will make use of one of the many cafes and pubs that lie along the route.
The support van will be available on each day and, towards the end of each day, will transport 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. Everyone leaves on the Sunday morning. We can arrange to get your bike shipped home at the end of the tour for a small extra fee.
