Join Will & Jon for a day, a week, a weekend or all 17 days of the UK cycle tour from Lands End to John O’Groats.  The trip is organised as day events, allowing you to sign up to whatever days you fancy, booking your own transport and accommodation according to your budget.

DAY ELEVEN - Penrith to Moffat

We cross the border today into Scotland, so keep you eyes out for Haggis running free in the hills.  I'm struggling to say many nice things about todays route as we cycle adjacent to the A74M for most of the day.  We might be pleasantly surprised with our 110km and 560m of ascent.

If time allows we can zip around Carlisle Castle, anyone fancy tying the knot in Gretna Green?

The route can be downloaded from here.

Tuesday 19th July accommodation suggestions in Moffat:

  • Will & Jon are staying in the Star Hotel.
  • There is a surprising number of B&Bs and hotels.

Keep costs down by getting twin rooms and sharing.

Getting there and back again

If you are joining us for the day, the nearest train station to the starting point is Penrith.

If you are leaving us in today .... well to be honest you can't, no train station anywhere near us.


If you have any questions regarding equipment etc email Will.Allaway@Outdoorlads.com.

A lot of useful information is included in Day 0 - Getting to Lands End.
