This tour is now fully booked – contact the leader if you'd like to be added to the waiting list in case there are cancellations.

Six days of cycle touring in the Scottish Borders. A Coast-to-Coast route starting from Carlisle on the west and finishing at Berwick-Upon-Tweed on the east. All days are moving on cycling with a total of around 430km for the whole Main Tour with daily distances varying between around 60km to 80km. Much use is made of the National Cycle Network or along what was the old Regional Cycle Network and there are a few quite significant sections of main road (B roads) along some of these. Although as always we do try to follow along quieter back roads where ever possible. There are some hills and a few quite steep ones but on the whole much of the cycling is surprisingly fairly easy, often following along river valleys or lower lying countryside and this year nearly the entire route is on road or on roadside cycle path.

There will be much variety of scenery and countryside as we transition through the different areas, each day being rather different from the previous one. Starting out low level coastal, heading inland and along huge U shaped valleys, around and into the more tranquil Tweed valley, over some extremely remote hilly moorland and finally back along the rather more rugged north-east coastal area to the finish.

Copenhagen to Berlin Tour
Saturday 31st August – Tuesday 10th September 2024

A ten day cycling adventure along Eurovelo 7 long distance cycle route between two of Europe's most vibrant capital cities, Copenhagen and Berlin. Our route will cover approximately 700km with 4000m of ascent. We meet in Copenhagen, and after a day of leisure, we cycle south along the coast of Zealand. Over the next three days, the route takes in the spectacular cliffs at the UNESCO World Heritage site at Stevns Klint before we explore the islands of Møn and Falster, enjoying the beautiful coastal scenery which is dotted with picturesque fishing villages.

On day five we leave Denmark catching a ferry across the Baltic to Rostock in Germany. The scenery over the next four days provides an interesting variety of rolling farmland, interspersed with dense forests, a lot of lakes and some peaceful wetlands, before we reach journey's end at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. A cycling tour of the city, taking in major historical sites, rounds off the tour before we either fly back to London or catch the evening Eurosleeper to Brussels and connect with Eurostar to St Pancras.
