London to Amsterdam

Various Dates: 2019

Cycling from London to Amsterdam – the bike capital of the world – is a classic European cycle experience and a wonderful challenge to achieve in only two days.

Passing through the picturesque countryside of rural England, we cross the Channel and continue across the flat landscape of Dutch Zeeland. The sight of Amsterdam with its network of canals, cobbled streets and wonderful architecture will evoke a real sense of excitement. We celebrate our achievement with a night in Amsterdam before heading home by train.

Land's end to John O'Groats Cycle

Various Dates: 2019

Starting at Land’s End on the south-westerly tip of England, we pedal our way through Cornwall, over Dartmoor and north along the Welsh border, skirting the Lake District into Scotland, via lochs and the Highlands to the North Coast and John O’Groats.

In all we will cover roughly 1,000 miles, passing through some of the most stunning and remote countryside in the British Isles.  This is a tough challenge but a fabulous way to see the country, and one of the most rewarding things you will ever do!
