Join us for the ultimate challenge of cycling the full length of the UK (End to End). Covering 1,040 miles in 18 days (16 cycling days) you'll take in some of the best and most iconic routes the National Cycle Network has to offer - this is a trip not to be missed.
We've tailored the route to include some of our most iconic sections of National Cycle Network on this trip so you can experience stunning scenery, artwork and a mixture of quiet roads and traffic free paths. Not just cycle head down on busy roads like other trips.

Costs and Fundraising
The trip costs £1,800, plus there is a £1,000 fundraising target or upfront donation (or mixture of both).
The cost of the ride has kindly been subsidised by Skedaddle to help us raise as much money as possible. Sustrans is also subsidising some of the costs by paying for the ride guides and jerseys. This way you can tell all your friends and family that you've paid for the trip yourself and all money raised is going straight to charity, so no one feels they are paying for your 'cycling holiday'.
We’ll send you a fundraising pack filled with ideas and advice to help you reach your target. All money raised will go directly to our charitable work to help keep the National Cycle Network going and growing.
Who is this ride for?
Our Sustrans group rides are always a lot of fun. Many participants sign up on their own and make life long friends on our rides - so definitely don't be worried about coming alone.
Riders tend to cycle as a group at a leisurely pace, but there is flexibility to ride on ahead and meet the group at the various tea or lunch stops.
This is a challenging ride so you will need to do some training and get used to riding days back to back. The group size for this ride is 15.
What better way to achieve the most challenging ride in the UK than with a great bunch of Sustrans supporters, camaraderie and to raise money for the charity behind the routes you will be riding on at the same time.
