Ride the length of Britain from toe to tip and declare yourself an ‘End to Ender’

The ultimate road cycling holiday in the UK - that really is the only way to describe our epic Land’s End to John O’Groats ride. We believe just about every cyclist should make this journey at least once in their lifetime and our 22-day version is perfect for enthusiastic, regular cyclists looking to be inspired by this iconic end to end journey.  

Starting in Land’s End and making the most of the prevailing wind, we skedaddle off on a 1,000 mile plus adventure through 3 countries in just 19 days of riding. Leaving the Cornish coast we pass through the wilds of Dartmoor, before crossing the River Severn and into Wales. Riding further north we skim the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, over the border into the dramatic scenery of Scotland, through Edinburgh and then up past Inverness to finally arrive at John O’Groats. 

This is a fully guided and supported cycling tour, with GPS units supplied. One guide accompanies riders whilst the other drives a support vehicle (perfect for those who feel they need a helping hand along the way!) What's more, we carry your bags and feed you along the way too - in short, we take care of everything so you can just concentrate on cycling at your own pace each day! 

We’ve been leading Land's End to John O'Groats tours since 2006. Our experts have carefully crafted the route based on years of experience. We provide a journey that showcases the very best of Britain, from the best roads, to the most remote landscapes. Learn more about what makes our route so special in our dedicated 'story behind' blog, including insights from legendary guide Peter Eagan who has led over 20 LEJOG tours for us.
