Arguably the most famous bike ride in the UK, with a difference... this 10 night guided tour will see you ride the length of the UK on roads less travelled, with Viva Velo devising a route unlike any other.
Main roads are avoided where possible, and the roads that are selected are picked for their stunning scenery, plus plenty of historic, cultural and mythical highlights along the way. An excellent standard of accommodation and full support throughout included!
*Travel to and from Scotland is expected to resume from 26th April. The 2021 LEJOG tour is sheduled to depart in late August.
Another of the UK's signature rides, and possibly the most popular long distance route in the country, the 'c2c' is a must-do for keen cyclists. On this self-guided weekender of intermediate difficulty, you'll explore some of the most stunning UK countryside. From the Georgian port of Whitehaven on the Irish Sea to the castle on the rock at Tynemouth facing the North Sea, you'll cross some of the most dramatic landscapes in the UK: the silvery, shining levels and the high crags of the Lake District, the vast, eerily empty moorland on the Cumbrian Fells, and the Tyne Valley, it's all there!
Over the last 10 years the Yorkshire Dales has become the must-ride road cycling destination in the UK, bolstered by the Dales hosting the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France and 2019 Road World Championships. On this self-guided weekend tour you'll face some of the famous climbs that the pros tackled, including the Col du Buttertubs and Grinton Moor.
Now is your chance to visit Yorkshire and ride some of these world class cycling routes. You will also be based for the weekend in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, and when not on the bike will be located perfectly to enjoy the amazing cycle cafes, craft beer brewery's and top rated restaurants.
