The Route
Day One
Saturday 11th July
Land's End to Clannaborough Barton
120.5 Miles
Northeast crossing the northern edge of Dartmoor, with hard climbs and spectacular scenery, trying to avoid the ponies.
Day Two
Sunday 12th July
Clannaborough Barton to Quedgely
122.0 Miles
Continuing Northeast, running parallel to the Severn Estuary to Gloucester, passing through a mixture of Heavy Industry and Tiny Hamlets.
Day Three
Monday 13th July
Quedgeley to Hampton Heath
117.4 Miles
North, running parallel to the Welsh Marches, continuing on into the West Midlands and into Pottery Country.
Day Four
Tuesday 14th July
Hampton Heath to Burneside
119.2 Miles
North, passing to the West of the Peak District, through the middle of the Liverpool and Manchester conurbations finishing close to the Southern edge of the Lakes.
Day Five
Wednesday 15th July
Burneside to Waterside
121.7 Miles
Hardest climb of the tour so far, rising from 40m above sea level in Kendal to almost 400m going over the pass to Penrith. Hopefully outstanding views to East of Yorkshire Dales and West to Lake District and possibly Isle of Man. We cross border close to Gretna Green, finally ending the day in the Southern Uplands.
Day Six
Thursday 16th July
Waterside to Lochawe
118.8 Miles
North through the Southern Uplands, past Glasgow to our East, crossing the Firth of Clyde by Ferry, into the Grampian Mountains. We'll be knackered after today as there will be many hard climbs.
Day Seven
Friday 17th July
Lochawe to Inverness
122.0 Miles
Northeast with possibly the most spectacular views of the trip as we head past Oban through Fort William with Ben Nevis to our East, trying not to fall into Loch Ness as we go past. Sleep our last night of the ride in Inverness.
Day Eight
Saturday 18th July
Inverness to John o'Groats
119.4 Miles
Downhill, but still Northeastwards to John o’Groats following the coast for the last 119 miles and a well deserved wee dram.
