The stuff of dreams

It's the longest distance you can cycle in the British Isles and yet still thousands take it on every year for charity. A classic challenge and truly the stuff of dreams.

Cyclists at Land's End

The route

The ride starts from Land’s End on Cornwall's south-westerly tip and takes riders through the west country, over the welsh border and up through the edge of the Lake District into Scotland where the route takes on lochs, valleys and highlands until eventually reaching the north coast destination at the colourful village of John O' Groats.

The journey covers 1,000 miles, passing through the best countryside Britain has to offer. It's a tough challenge but it will definitely be one of the most rewarding things you will ever do!

Costs and sponsorship

Cyclists will pay a £349 registration fee to Discover Adventure and must raise a minimum of £3,000 for the charity. This sponsorship target covers your tour costs plus a donation so that we can enable The Royal Marsden to remain at the forefront of cancer treatment and research.

There is also the option to self-fund your tour costs, with the ‘full payment option’. This means that you cover your own tour cost and then raise as much as you like for us, with no minimum sponsorship target.
