960 miles of breathless sightseeing across some of the most beautiful scenery Britain has to offer

We don't give give out full details of our route except to fully signed up riders, but overall, the route is approx 960 miles broken in to daily stages averaging 106 miles. We say approx because we are finishing off the route to embrace the new direction and the indoor accommodation at the universities. It is also possible that road works will occur during the ride which might mean diversions. In 2011 we had 1 diversion resulting in an additional 6 miles, but don't worry, we'll let you know in advance.

Britain is beautiful. The route takes calm back roads where possible, taking in the absolutely stunning scenery that the UK has to offer, but given the length of the ride it is impossible to avoid busy towns/cities at times. You should therefore train in, and be prepared for, all traffic conditions including some busy A roads, city roads with rush hour traffic, busy roundabouts & junctions. Feeling comfortable in all traffic conditions is essential for your safety and enjoyment.

As much as we'd love to have many of Britain's tarmac resurfaced just for us, the road surfaces in Britain have worsened in recent years because of harsh winters. You should be prepared for certain sections to be rough on your equipment.
