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 NINE - Manchester to Settle

Following a day off, we head towards the Forest of Bowland and skirt into North Yorkshire.  The majority of the route is along off-road cycle lanes which have the potential to be very nice or hellish mud and gravel, but thats all part of the adventure.

The route can be downloaded from here.

Sunday 17th July accommodation suggestions in Settle:

  • plenty of pubs to choose from.
  • Will and Jon have booked into the Harts Head Hotel through Booking.com

Keep costs down by getting twin rooms and sharing.
