FULL ROUTE OVERVIEW

So tomorrow is D-Day, when Dad and I set off to cycle the coast of Great Britain. It seems like years ago when I suggested the idea to Dad and yet here we are – the day before the ride!

We’re lucky that we have lots of people wanting to join us on the ride, and that was one of the main reason I plotted the route and blogged it all before we set off.  Although I’ve put dates against each part of the route, please be warned that these are definitely just a GUIDE as I have not factored in any rest days.  All of the ‘rest days’ will be dictated by the weather, but I am aiming to blog everyday with an update so watch this space.

To make it easier, I’ve noted down below the start and finish points, mileage and total ascent for each day, plus cumulative totals (if you want more details on each day, like maps look at each day under ‘route’). Again, just to note – we will make wrong turnings, change route plans and often take longer than anticipated, all of the details below are just a GUIDE!
