Expedition and cycle event specialists Across the Divide are capitalising on the success of their London to Paris and Euro Cities Cycle tours with the launch of the all-new Edinburgh to London challenge. The company were behind the logistics of last year’s phenomenally successful Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge, which saw TV presenter Matt Baker tackle the route for charity and have now devised a similar event (sadly not involving rickshaws) for the general public to test their legs over. The route covers 450+ miles through the rugged fells of Cumbria to one of Britain’s best loved national parks, the Yorkshire Dales, and onto the flats of Lincolnshire and villages of Cambridgeshire, before delivering participants to the Capital after 5 days of tough cycling. Days 1-4 each involve around 100miles with the final day a relatively sedate 62miles. Scheduled to take place September 22-26 full details and booking information can be found at www.acrossthedivide.com.
