Route description
Route description

We guide you from the rugged coastline of Cornwall to the rolling hills and valleys of the North of England right up 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. Want us to prove it? We’d love to.

You are climbing an average of 5,776ft per day. The largest day is Day 1 at 8,232ft and the smallest day being a climb of 3,133ft on Day 4.

The route will be fully signposted, with chaperones along the route for support.

Logistics and schedule

Each day you will start/finish at the basecamp and be shuttled to and from your hotel accommodation.

We will be running shuttles from the basecamp to your hotel from 4pm each day (apart from Friday 6th where there will only be one shuttle at 9.30pm). The exact timings of these shuttles will vary and will depend on the proximity of the hotel to the basecamp.

As we need to coordinate shuttle transport for 75 riders you may have to wait a short while for your shuttle. You will be able to help yourself to afternoon tea and have a massage while you wait, and also have your day bag available to shower and change into something comfortable.

As you will be eating, having your massage and attending the evening briefing in the basecamp, there will be shuttles going to and from the hotels back to the basecamp. This is particularly for those that arrive early in to the basecamp and want to go back to their hotel before returning to the basecamp for dinner and evening briefing.

How to get there

Unnamed Road, Penzance TR19 7AA, UK

If you are flying from overseas for the Ride, we understand you may not be able to drop your bike for the bike transport in advance of the event. Therefore our transport service will allow you to book your bike on to certain “rider only” bus shuttles for an additional cost.

Getting from London to Land’s End: If you are flying in to London, your best option is to get a train from London to Penzance (you must book your bike onto this in advance). You then need to book a shuttle with you (and your bike) to get to the start line. Alternatively there are some shuttles from southern airports such as Bristol and Newquay.

Getting from JOG to London: On day 9 (the last day) there is no accommodation provided. However, our shuttle provider organise shuttles from the finish to Inverness and Wick on the Sunday afternoon/ evening (must be pre-booked). The majority of riders will make their onward journey on the Sunday but many opt to stay overnight in either Inverness or Wick and get flights or trains the following day. You will either want to get a late flight or sleeper train from Inverness on the Sunday, or a flight back to London from Inverness on Monday.
