Centenary UK tour from York to Edinburgh

This Tour is currently being replanned in the light of the Covid situation. The Tour Leader is hopeful that it can be structured to allow for (current) Covid-19 restrictions .   For the moment if you are interested then please complete the Registration form  linked to at the bottom of this page.


This is an adventurous moving on tour designed by Mike Thomas to celebrate the Club’s Centenary

Starting in York and finishing in Edinburgh the route is roughly based on three National Cycle Network Routes:

  1. The White Rose Route
  2. Three Rivers Cycle Route
  3. Coast and Castles

Mike did this route a few years ago and especially enjoyed the start at York, The North York Moors, Durham, Northumberland,  Berwick, and the route to Edinburgh via Melrose. (Edinburgh was also great but the memory dimmed by too many celebration beers!) 


The route is nominally 277 miles but realistically to allow for visits to places of interest on the way a the distance is probably closer to 325 miles.  With an average of 45 miles per day this would take 7 days, plus 2 travelling days which could include time in York and Edinburgh. 

The probable date will be 9th-24th June but this will be confirmed once detailed planning has been done.

It is envisaged that the route will be planned for 12 participants but this will be reviewed as part of the detailed planning.

This activity is not yet open for booking – however Mike is interested in knowing what level of interest there is so please go to our Shop to complete a Registration form.
