Day 11 – Tain to Bettyhill
The penultimate day of cycling and the taste of the finish is in the air. There are a few flat stretches today, punctuated of course with a few climbs up onto the moors.There is very little traffic on the route and the chance to see red deer, ospreys or even golden eagles soaring above. Next descend down to the coast and head east in this almost deserted landscape until you reach Betty Hill, where you will stay overnight.
Cycling distance – approx. 69 miles
Day 12 – Bettyhill to John O’Groats
The final day of the challenge will seem much shorter, as signs appear for John O’Groats. A small detour to Dunnet Head – the most northernly point on the British mainland – before cycling the final few miles. The final part of the journey will be along a mainly flat road to the finish line where you can celebrate! After signing the official End to End book, transfer back to Inverness for a celebration dinner.
Cycling distance – approx. 61 miles
Day 13 – Depart Inverness
After breakfast, it’s time for goodbyes and to start your journey home with an incredible sense of pride after achieving the challenge of a lifetime!
