Savour the best of the South-West on this long weekend adventure, conquering the hardest stretch of Lands End to John O’Groats.

Dust off your lycra and join a fantastic team cycling this famous route to Bristol. Our expert leads and support team will guide you along the way, avoiding busy roads where possible, and making sure you get to enjoy some spectacular views. The ride will be a great test of endurance, over the four days you’ll climb more than 15,325 ft and cycle over 230 miles.

We’ll provide 3 nights accommodation, breakfasts, support vehicle for your luggage, maintenance support, transfer of your bike to Lands End, cycling leaders, and welcome home celebrations. You’ll need to cover all other meals, a bike and cycling equipment, clothing and your own travel to Lands End.

What you can expect…

Day One: Starting at the famous Lands End headland, cycle the staggeringly beautiful Cornish coast pausing at the picturesque town of St Ives and staying the night in Newquay.

Day Two: After a hearty breakfast, tackle the longest ride with pit-stops at Padstow and the Devon-shire coastline before arriving in Westward Ho! for a restful evening.

Day Three: Feel the burn as you take in the breathtaking Exmoor national park, the shortest distance but the toughest climbs, to reach Blue Anchor for the night.

Day Four: Homeward Bound! We’ve saved some of the best sights till last, cycle past Cheddar Gorge and the stunning Suspension Bridge will welcome you back to Bristol. Cross the finish line at our offices where we’ll host the celebrations…
