Day 2
Liskeard to Taunton

Today your route crosses Dartmoor, one of the most challenging sections of your journey. You’ll cycle over rolling hills into Devon and through Tavistock, where you’re greeted with a steep climb onto Dartmoor itself, towards the village of Two Bridges. If the weather is kind, the views are spectacular, though it can often be foggy in this wild part of southwest England.

There is a great descent into Postbridge, with its well-known stone Clapper Bridge, and before another climb. Once you’ve reached the small town of Moretonhampstead the hardest climbs are behind you. Phew.

The road then winds its way to the edge of Dartmoor, where it’s downhill to Exeter; where a quiet road takes you in to Taunton for a well deserved rest.

The picturesque hills of the Lake District rise to your left as you head towards Shap Fell at over 1000 feet. It’s a long gradual climb.

You’ll pass through the small town of Sanquar, home to Britain’s oldest post-office, and a great old toll booth; look out for memorials and plaques in this region commemorating the Covenanters who rebelled against the religious dictates of the Stuart Kings in the late 1600’s.

Nearing Kilmarnock, the roads grow busier though it’s only a short journey to your hotel in the second largest town in Ayrshire.

Skirting the forests of Appin, you’ll head north continuing along the coast to Ballachulish – where the road splits off to the famous Glencoe. Your route travels straight, crossing Loch Leven, and along the banks of Loch Linnhe, enjoying a much-deserved flat run into Fort William.

Cycling alongside the Nessie you’ll be treated to some beautiful views of this large, deep, freshwater loch. Passing Invermoriston and the ancient Urquhart Castle, makes for a picturesque backdrop against the darkness of the loch.

Day 11
Evanton to Thurso

The last and longest day of cycling! The terrain is challenging, bleak, and the roads are almost deserted! With plenty of miles in your legs now, you should be feeling up for the challenge – and the end is in sight!

Starting with a climb through moorland, you are treated to a great early morning view above Dornoch Forth, and a fantastic descent to Bonar Bridge. The road continues up as you climb for over 30 miles through the moors. There are a few flat stretches which help to break up the terrain and it’s not too steep; it can be quite exposed, yet the scenery is impressive. Look out for herds of red deer and birds of prey such as osprey or even the elusive golden eagle. You’ll pass several small lochs and some forested areas, and take time simply enjoy the scenery. From the top of the climb it’s a welcomed sweeping descent to the North Coast, where you’ll head east, witnessing glimpses of beautiful, deserted golden beaches. The roads are flatter now but this short section can feel very tough in strong winds. Passing the power station at Dounreay marks you approach into Thurso. This small town comes as a slight culture shock after all the miles you have covered on near-deserted roads in the last two days. Your hotel is a welcomed sight.

Cycling distance: approx 107 miles

Included:

Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner
Accommodation: hotel (twin share basis)

Day 12

You’ll take a short detour onto Dunnet Head, cycling the narrow road to Scotland’s most northerly point, and enjoy claiming that achievement too! You’ll then return and pedal the remaining miles along a fairly flat road to John O’Groats and your Finish Line! After time to celebrate and sign the official End to End book, we’ll load up the bikes and head south to Inverness. A great Scottish town to celebrate your epic achievements with your fellow team-mates!
