Our hotel is in TBC where we will stay overnight stay and relax before tomorrow’s ride.

Cheddar Gorge, a picturesque limestone gorge located in the Mendip Hills, near the village of Cheddar in Somerset, England. Cheddar Gorge is known for its stunning natural beauty, with towering cliffs rising to 137 meters (449 feet) above the surrounding landscape. It’s a popular tourist destination, attracting visitors for its hiking trails, rock climbing opportunities, and the famous Cheddar Caves.

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is an iconic landmark located in Bristol, England, spanning the Avon Gorge and the River Avon.

Today is the day that we reach the halfway mark of our challenge. Not only are we halfway but you have also conquered the toughest part.

The final day has finally arrived. One last pull to get you to the end. We are cycling some of ‘The Far North Way’ a cycling route between Inverness to John O’ Groats. The 200-mile Far North Way passes through some of the most remote landscapes in the UK, including the ancient peatlands of the Flow Country in the former administrative counties of Caithness and Sutherland. In addition, the route forms part of the North Sea Cycle Route – an international cycle route through eight European countries.
Ancient forests and remote moorlands rich in wildlife. This final section is the most remote of the route. Snap your picture next to the John O’Groats sign and revel in your accomplishment of completing the UK’s most iconic ride.

After the ride today, and the obligatory photograph at the signpost, we’ll transfer you back to Inverness. From here the programme is up to you – you can book to stay  overnight or head straight back home via the airport or train station. Either way it’s time to unwind after a truly mammoth achievement.
