Lands End to John O’Groats – 14 day tour

The Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle tour or LEJOG conjures up a variety of images, an escapade, a challenge, hard work, a puncture or two, stunning scenery, and a tremendous sense of achievement. Since the 1960’s the End to End has become a firm favourite with the British people. Every year, walkers, cyclists, joggers and runners navigate the length of the British Isles.

This page shows details about out 14 day tour. If you would like to try the 10 day LEJOG challenge please click here 10 Day LEJOG

Experience tells us that the best way to traverse the length of the country is from the southwest to the northeast. The rationale behind this choice revolves around wind and transport. The prevailing wind blows from the southwest and the transport connections work best when returning from the northeast of Scotland.

The LEJOG route we will be taking is undertaken over 14 days and we aim to keep away from busy roads wherever possible. It encompasses some of the United Kingdom’s most spectacular countryside and exhilarating cycling.

Whilst emphasis is always on safety we aim to provide a relaxed approach to cycle touring and wish to facilitate a fun and enjoyable tour with many laughs and memorable moments along the way. Our training days in the Peak District are designed to build confidence and discuss some of the logistics of completing a successful Lands End to John O’Groats tour. To view details of our training weekends please click here.

The tour runs in much the same way as our other tours, with the ‘magic van’ providing refreshments throughout the tour. Lunches are provided at a pub or a café each day and all your luggage is moved for you.

You are provided with detailed route notes and for those with Garmins we also have GPX files of the route (or you can hire a device from us with the route loaded on). Usually a tour guide cycles at the back of the group and there is a support vehicle on hand should you require assistance. We also carry a few spare bikes just in case you have any major mechanical problems.

You will need to arrive for the start of the tour on Saturday. You have accommodation included on Saturday night, your ‘Arrival Day;’ the dates below reflect this. We will pick you up from Penzance train station on the Saturday, and take you to your hotel so that you can settle in before a welcome meal and group briefing in the evening. The first day of cycling is the Sunday.

At the end of the tour, the final day of cycling is Saturday, when we will have a celebratory end of tour evening meal. Accommodation is included on this final Saturday. After your overnight stay in John o’Groats, you will be transferred to Inverness airport or train station on the Sunday. If you are worried about getting your bike home at the end of the trip we can arrange for it to be packed, boxed and sent to your address for you so you can relax when you have completed the challenge.

Also, if you would like a motivating read about preparing for and completing the 14 Day LEJOG then you can read a book about it. One of our customers rode the LEJOG tour and then the Channel to the Med tour a few years later. You can see the book here – Diary of a mid life Cyclist. You can also read a book with a massive amount of historical information and facts about places that you will see along the way by Daniel Darkens who rode LEJOG with us in 2017 and again in 2021 here – LEJOG – A Sightseer’s Guide for the colour and Kindle versions and here – LEJOG – A Sightseer’s Guide for the black and white copy.

The first date is the arrival day and the next day is the first day cycling. At the end of the tour the final date is the day to return home and the final days cycling will be the day before. Accommodation is included on the arrival day in addition to all the others.

We are being completely flexible with regard the the COVID situation. If you have any concerns then please see our informal but fair response to the pandemic here.

Lands End to John O’Groats – 14 day tour Route

Arrival Day Saturday: Non-riding day
Everyone will arrive at St Just today ready for a welcome brief and group meal at 7:30pm. You can travel directly to St Just or you can travel to Penzance and we will meet you there and transfer you to your accommodation.

Day 1 Sunday:Lands End to Fowey (64 miles) Elevation Gain: 1409m / 4622ft 
On the day of departure we will be making an early start from the famous signpost at the most south westerly point on the English mainland, Lands End. The first day is perhaps, one of the toughest. The hills in Cornwall are not particularly high, but they are steep and there are a lot of them, any miles that are done in training, prior to the ‘big trip’ will reap huge dividends on this early stage.

Day 2 Monday:Fowey to Moretonhampstead (60 miles) Elevation Gain: 2051m / 6730ft
The second day of the journey is one of the toughest. We have plenty more Cornish hills to climb up and down although the scenery is lovely. We continue into Devon and more hills await as we cycle through Dartmoor National Park. On a clear day this is a truly spectacular section although it can get very bleak if the weather is bad!

Day 3 Tuesday:Moretonhampstead to Street (68 miles) Elevation Gain: 1752m / 3799ft
The next day of our adventure will begin with some hilly cycling as we negotiate the back roads towards Exeter. As we leave Exeter behind the terrain becomes a little easier and after lunch, as we will be wending our way through gentle, quiet country lanes through the Isle of Avalon. We continue across the Somerset Levels to bring us to the lovely little town of Street, near Glastonbury.

Day 4 Wednesday:Street to Monmouth (64 miles) Elevation Gain: 1028m / 3372ft
We will continue to the cathedral city of Wells, often referred to as the smallest city in England. A climb out of Wells is rewarded with some fine cycling across the top of the Mendip Hills, before dropping to Chew Valley lake and through the Long Ashton Estate. We will cycle over the iconic Clifton suspension bridge before cycling through Bristol. After lunch we will continue over the Severn Bridge and into Wales. The afternoon is spent cycling along the Wye Valley – a truly memorable days cycling.

Day 5 Thursday:Monmouth to Clun (58 miles) Elevation Gain: 1052m / 3451ft
The fifth day of the journey is perhaps one of the easiest and the scenery is stunning with the Black Mountains in the distance. The roads are very quiet and the scenery amongst the best of the trip. We will be cycling to the west of Leominster and eventually stopping for the night at the recently restored watermill at Clun Mill, a local pub or B&B. Clun has a couple of great real ale pubs and places to eat.

Day 6 Friday:Clun to Runcorn (79 miles) Elevation Gain: 1256m/4120ft
A scenic, undulating road takes us away from Clun to the white & black timbered buildings of Shrewsbury. After Shrewsbury the route is flat & easy as we continue northwards along the Cheshire plains so although the mileage is high this is one of the easiest days of the tour.

Day 7 Saturday:Runcorn to Lancaster (73 miles) Elevation Gain: 1205m/3953ft
Leaving Runcorn we will be weaving through the Manchester – Liverpool conurbation. The terrain is easy for the first half of the day but we have a number of roads, roundabouts, cycle paths and town centres to navigate so concentration is required. As the day progresses, the countryside beckons once again and there is a nice run in to Lancaster.

Day 8 Sunday:Lancaster to Penrith (60 miles) Elevation Gain: 1024m / 3359ft
Sunday will see us cycling to the North West of Lancaster where we pick up a cycle path which winds alongside the River Lune heading East continuing on to the beautifully picturesque market town of Kirby Lonsdale. Kirby Lonsdale has had a market once a week since 1227AD and is home to a Norman Church, which we will cycle right past, which is 1000 years old! We then continue onwards edging the Yorkshire Dales National park and then the Howgills to our right and the Lake District National Park to our left. Initially the cycling is easy but we will encounter a number of hills further north as we pass Sedbergh on our way to Penrith.

Day 9 Monday:Penrith to Moffat (70 miles) Elevation Gain: 648m / 2127ft
On the second Monday morning, the ‘daily commute’ or the ‘school run’, will be the last thing on our minds, as stiff climbs from the Lake District are forgotten we will be navigating through the tail end of the Lake District towards the city of Carlisle, the terrain flattens out around this historic city and the cycling becomes relatively easy as the day wears on.

Day 10 Tuesday: Moffat to Kinross (82 miles) Elevation Gain: 1206m / 3956ft               
Leaving Moffat, a gradual climb takes you up over the Lowther Hills through some wild and stunning scenery. You will cycle alongside the River Tweed before descending towards Edinburgh. A great ride through Edinburgh city centre leads you over the iconic Forth Road Bridge over the Firth of Forth and onto Kinross.

Day 11 Wednesday:Kinross to Ballater (80 miles) Elevation Gain: 1604m / 5262ft           
Continuing north you will skirt round Perth and cross the River Tay. A lovely ride takes you onto Blairgowrie and Glen Shee. A notable climb up to the ski resorts at Glenshee is followed by a long descent to Braemar. Further along you will pass by the Queens country home at Balmoral and finish the day in the vibrant highland town of Ballater.

Day 12 Thursday:Ballater to Inverness (73 miles) Elevation Gain:  1695m  / 5561ft          
A tough start takes you up and over the Lecht before descending to Tomintoul. You will pass ski resorts, castles and stunning scenery as you continue through the Grampian Mountains before arriving at the capital of the Highlands, Inverness. This is another truly memorable days cycling although a tough ride and your legs will be ready for a rest by the time you reach Inverness.

Day 13 Friday:Inverness to Crask (66 miles) Elevation Gain: 1106m / 3628ft
A stunning ride away from Inverness takes you over the Kessock Bridge and alongside the Beauly Firth to the Muir of Ord and Dingwall. Just out of Dingwall brings another ascent onto what the locals call the ‘Struie’. As we reach the top of the ‘Struie’ we will be amply rewarded with impressive views of the Dornoch Firth and away in the distance Loch Shin. The final few hours are spent descending down to Bonar Bridge and then the steady climb to Lairg and beyond which is our destination for the evening, The Crask Inn, arguably the finest and friendliest of pubs in the UK.

Day 14 Saturday:Crask to John O’Groats (82 miles) Elevation Gain: 1163m / 3815ft
A freewheeling descent from the Crask Inn and the dazzling backdrop provided by Loch Naver and Ben Klibreck will make this morning truly unforgettable. As Loch Naver gives way to the famous salmon runs of the River Naver, we will be enjoying some of the finest cycling of the whole journey. Around lunchtime we sight the Atlantic Ocean at Bettyhill and the final afternoon will be spent making progress along the northern coastline of Scotland towards John O’Groats. The final few hours of the afternoon will find the terrain flatten out and we are rewarded with an easy ride to the finishing line at John O’Groats, where the champagne corks will be popping.

Departure Day Sunday Non-riding day
A coach will leave John O’Groats at 6:15 am to transport us all to Inverness today making a drop off at both Inverness Train Station at around 9:30am and Inverness Airport at around 9:45am

Go To Booking Form

What’s Included?

The tour price includes 15 nights accommodation, 15 breakfasts, 14 lunches, snacks, fruit, dried fruit, jelly babies, cake, tea, coffee, & hot chocolate etc, full trip support including a tour leader that cycles with the group, back up van with spare parts and a few spare bikes, detailed route notes so that you can cycle at your own pace, gpx files, Lands End to John O’Groats Cycle Shirt, certificate, luggage transfer each day, transfer from Penzance to Lands End and transfer from John O’Groats to Inverness.

What’s Not Included?

Evening meals, cycle hire (available for a fee), Garmin hire (available for a fee), transport to Penzance, transport from Inverness.

Group Size

The group will be a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 25 people. We feel that this size of group works best as there will always be enough in the group for some good company but there won’t be so many people that it becomes overcrowded.


You have a choice of staying in a mixture of hostels and B&B’s or B&B’s only sharing a double or a twin room. If you would like your own space then you can choose the single room option, or sole occupancy of a double. Most of the rooms are en-suite however there maybe a few nights where your room isn’t en-suite (Sole occupancy of a double room is guaranteed e/suite).


Although the shortest route from Lands End to John O’Groats is 874 miles our route of 990 miles avoids main roads and takes in some of the UK’s most beautiful scenery. Wherever possible we cycle along quiet country lanes and cycleways and only join main roads when we absolutely have to. The terrain is varied but generally undulating rolling fields and hills with some areas hillier than others (primarily Cornwall, Dartmoor, Lake District & Scotland).


All of your breakfasts and lunches are included in the price of the trip. You will usually have a choice of full English, toast, cereals, fruit juices, tea, coffee etc. Lunches will be provided each day and will generally be a buffet at a cafe or a country pub. Evening meals can be bought at your accommodation or in a nearby pub. We also have fruit, biscuits, nuts etc in the back up van that you are welcome to pick at throughout the day.

Back Up

An experienced tour leader will cycle with you each day and be on hand to help with any bike problems that may occur. You will have detailed route notes so that you can go slower or faster than the guide if you prefer or you can cycle at the back with the tour guide so that you don’t have to navigate at all.

A back up van will leap frog the group a number of times each day so that help is never far away. We carry a range of spare parts so that repairs can be made en-route and we will have a spare bike available in the event that your bike has a serious breakdown.


We highly recommend that you use a bike that you are used to and feel comfortable riding. Your bike should be fully serviced and in good condition before you start, this will reduce the risk of mechanical problems and unnecessary stoppages along the way. It should be noted that if you have your bike serviced before the tour then it is a good idea to ride it a few times to allow things to ‘bed in’ before joining the tour. Either a road bike or a touring bike is preferable. We have a range of road and touring bikes available for hire if you don’t have your own bike. We will take your bike over for you if you bring it to us before hand and we will take it back for you at the end of the tour as well (free of charge if you drop off and pick up or we can box the bike and post it to you for a charge). Please note that Peak Tours will not be held responsible for any damage cause in the transportation of the bikes, problems are very rare indeed and we have a very safe, tried and tested system. Any bikes with DI gears need to bring their chargers with them for the trip and riders also need to be aware that it may be necessary to remove the saddle and in some cases with DI gears, unplug the cable (although we try to avoid this). We also remove the front wheel of most bikes being transported and place them in wheel bags, if anyone has a wheel that requires a specific tool you would need to provide that too please.


This tour is suitable for someone with a good level of fitness and who wants a challenge. If you do plenty of training beforehand you should have no problem completing the ride. We will organise a training weekend in the Peak District if you would like to get in some hill climbs/practise before the main event. You can book onto this via this link;

It must be stressed that a good amount of training before the ride will make your tour much more enjoyable and ensure that you finish your ride. We are always happy to advise about training plans so please just ask.

Clothing & Equipment

Clothing for all weathers is recommended so waterproofs are essential. A full recommended kit list is provided & we are always happy to answer any questions that you may have.

You can do washing at many of the B&B’s & hostels so that you don’t have to bring a mountain of clothes.


It is highly recommended that you take out adequate insurance to cover against, personal accident, loss of belongings and cancellation cover.

How do I get to Penzance?

You can get to Penzance by Car, train, plane & ferry (or you could cycle). We can pick you up at Penzance when you arrive and transport you and your bike to your first nights accommodation. Penzance is about 8 miles from our accommodation in St. Just. To get to Penzance:

By Car The M5 will take you as far as Exeter, there you can join the A30 which will take you all the way to Penzance. If you are hiring a car there is a Europcar depo at Penzance train station where you can leave your hire car.

By Train There are frequent trains from London, Paddington and major stations along the way. Penzance is at the end of the line, so if you fall asleep you won’t go past your stop! If flying to Newquay, you can take the train from Newquay, then onwards to Penzance, changing once at Par station. This journey takes just under 2 hours. For train timetables tel: 08457 48 49 50 or book online at

By Air You can fly to Cornwall by taking a flight from London to Newquay Airport. The journey takes around one and a half hours. Then from Newquay you can take a coach or train onwards to Penzance. Flights can be booked by calling: Air Southwest, British Airways or Ryan Air, UK airport and ticket information, Newquay Airport information, Ebookers online travel agent. If flying to Newquay, you can take a train from Newquay, then onwards to Penzance, changing once at Par station.

By Ferry For visitors coming from Europe there are ferry links from Roscoff, in France or Santander, in Spain, both to the nearby port of Plymouth. A train or coach can then be taken to Penzance.

What happens when I arrive?

If you would like collecting from Penzance we will meet you at the station and take you, your luggage & your bike to St. Just where we will spend our first night. It is about 8 miles from Penzance to St. Just so if you want to cycle we can meet you at Penzance and take your luggage for you. Just let us know when you want picking up and we will meet you then. We will have a group meal at 20:00 on the first night so if you are arriving much earlier you have the time free to yourself.

What happens at the end?

On the final day we finish cycling late afternoon or early evening and spend the night at John o’Groats. We have a ‘final supper’ where we all get together for a last group meal. On final morning a coach is booked for 6.45 & will take everyone back to Inverness. We should arrive at Inverness station at around 9.15 and the airport for around 9.45.

If you are taking your bike back with you then we will transport your bike to Inverness for you, or, if you choose the ‘return transport’ option then your bikes will be packed and couriered back to your address for you.

What mechanical knowledge do I need?

We don’t expect you to be an expert bike mechanic but there are a few simple skills that will be a great benefit to you. The most important skill you need to know is how to fix a puncture. It is quite likely that at some point you will have a puncture or two so it is essential that you carry a puncture repair kit and a spare tube or two with you. It is also helpful if you know how to change your brake pads and adjust your brakes and gears, however this isn’t essential. Our guides will help you with any repairs and adjustments en-route.

What are the lunches like?

We arrange a buffet lunch at a pub or café each day. This will be a mixture of sandwiches, salads, soup, pizza, pasta salad etc and will be different at each place. There will always be enough to go round so don’t worry if you are at the back of the group. The lunch stops provide a good opportunity to re-group and catch up with others and compare notes.

Will I be left behind?

No, a tour leader cycles at the back of the group so that you won’t be left behind if you are worried about cycling too slowly. Throughout the group there will be a mix of abilities and cycling speeds so you will usually be able to cycle with others that cycle at a similar pace. Some people like to cycle fast whilst others prefer to take their time, stop for coffee & cake or stop to take photos etc so whether you are a ‘speed demon’ or more of a ‘tourer’ there usually will be someone to cycle with each day.

Do I need to be super fit?

No, you don’t need to be super fit but a good level of fitness is important as the LEJOG is a challenging ride. The fitter you are and the more training that you do before hand will add to the enjoyment of your tour and improve your chances of succeeding the challenge. If you need any advice about fitness please contact us and we will be happy to discuss any questions and concerns that you may have.

What are the groups like?

Obviously each group is different but generally lejoggers are a fun, friendly, helpful and adventurous bunch. There will be people of all ages and from all walks of life. We tend to get quite a few older riders although there will always be a few younger riders as well. So far our youngest rider was 13 & the oldest 84. We think that a group of 20-25 is ideal as there will be plenty of people with similar interests and character without being such a big group that it becomes too much.

Generally the group will be split 50/50 between people travelling alone & people that travel as a pair such as two brothers, two friends, two partners. There will be plenty of people to socialise with throughout the day and in the evening.

How do I get my bike home at the end of the trip?

If you are flying then you will need to box your bike before you board the plane. If you choose to do this you will need to send your bike box or bag to the final destination at the hotel in JOG as we don’t have space in the back up van to carry bike boxes or bags (exceptions can be made for one or two foldable bags for overseas travellers) . If you are travelling by train you will need to ensure that your bike is booked on each leg of your journey. We will transport your bike back to Inverness for you.

An easy alternative to transporting your bike yourself is to use the services of Ticket to Ride ( Whilst we don’t take any responsibility for any outside bike couriering services previous ‘lejogers’ have used them and have reported that they offer an excellent service.

The way it works is that we will transport your bikes back to Inverness where a member of the Ticket to Ride staff will meet us at the airport/station & take any bikes that are to be posted or they will collect bikes from JOG. The bikes will then be boxed (this usually means that they will remove the front wheel, pedals, saddle & handlebars) and posted to your address. The price for this service is available on request. If you would like to use this service please let us know & we will book it in for you.

What happens in the evenings?

Once you have arrived at your accommodation you should have chance for some time to relax, have a shower etc before the evening meal. We usually arrange somewhere to eat for the evening meal so that we can all get together and you won’t be left alone if you would like to eat with others. Quite often will simply arrange a certain pub to meet up & just drift in when you are ready whilst at other places we have a set time to eat – it just depends on the location.

Does the support vehicle follow the group?

No, the back up van doesn’t drive behind the group at all times but the van shouldn’t be too far away if you require assistance. In the morning we have a group brief and set off cycling, meanwhile the backup driver will collect all the luggage from the various B&B’s & hostels. Once all of the luggage has been loaded, the support vehicle will leapfrog the group stopping when necessary. The backup driver will be at the lunch stop should you need anything from the van and in the afternoon will go on ahead to ensure that your luggage is in place before you arrive.

How much luggage can I take?

There is limited space in the back up van to store luggage. We therefore request that you try to keep your luggage size to a minimum & try not to bring too much with you. Washing clothes can be done en-route so you shouldn’t need to bring a clean set of clothes for every day. The ideal size for luggage is 70 x 50 x 30 cm and a weight of 15 – 18kg (or less).

What training should I do?

The more the better. We will provide a training guide for you so that you can build up your cycling strength and prepare for the ride in the correct way. It is important that you cycle two long days back to back whilst training and also that you cycle on some hills. We hold a training weekend in April so that you can meet with others in the group, ask any questions you may have and also test yourselves amongst the challenging hills of the Peak District.

What bike should I use?

The most suitable bike for this trip is a hybrid, touring or road bike, however it is entirely up to you what type of bike you use. Some people may be riding mountain bikes, others hybrids & others on racing bikes.

Please ensure that your bike is fully serviced and in good working order before the start of the trip.

If you are riding a mountain bike then it is advisable to use slick tyres or if you are using a lightweight racing bike it would be better to use a wider tyre if possible as the route does include narrow lanes and some roads have a lot of pot holes. Tyre inflation and rubber composition is important & a tyre width of 25mm or more is recommended for this tour. Please ensure that you have hard wearing tyres with plenty of tread.

You are going to cycle 1000 miles so it is important that your bike won’t let you down. You may want to fit new brake blocks, tyres & inner tubes before you start the ride and also bring 3-4 spare inner tubes, pump, puncture repair kit and multi-tool to carry with you each day. It is essential that you are able to fix a puncture.

It is also advisable to have front and rear lights on your bikes and try to be a visible as possible.

What gear should I take?

We provide a suggested kit list so please contact us if you would like a copy sending to you.

What is the male / female ratio?

This varies with each group. There are usually more guys than gals but an average would be about 1/3rd ladies and 2/3rds gents.

What are the Accommodation Options?

We have tried to offer a variety of accommodation options to cater for different budgets and to offer a few alternatives for anyone that wants to join us for a Lands End to John o’Groats tour. Throughout the tour we stay in fifteen different locations and may use up to seven different B&B’s in each location (sometimes we will all be in the same hotel). The standard of each B&B will be different in each place but I always try to be fair when allocating rooms as some rooms are better than others. Please have a read through the following information to ensure that you choose most suitable option for you.

A mixture of hostels and B&B’s
This is the most cost effective option as you will stay in hostels on approximately four or five nights of the tour and B&B’s on the remaining ten or eleven nights of the tour. Whilst you are staying in a hostel you are likely to be staying in a dormitory room of 4-8 people (same sex). Usually the hostels that we use are in old historic buildings and are full of character. There is usually a good social atmosphere in the hostels and they all have hot showers, bedding, communal areas and breakfast is provided. The downside is that you are sharing with others and there is a higher chance that there may be more snorers so ear plugs are recommended and also a towel. You don’t need to be a YHA member to book this option as we have a group membership.

B&B’s only option
It is fairly obvious that if you choose this option then you will stay in a B&B/hotel every night. If you are with your partner then you can have a double room each night of the tour. If you are with a friend/relative then you would have a twin room each night of the tour. If you are travelling alone and choose this option then you will be roomed with other members of the group (same sex) and stay in a twin (occasionally a triple) room throughout. Usually you will have an en-suite bathroom but occasionally you have a separate bathroom.

Single room option
Here you are guaranteed a single room each night of the trip. You will have a mixture on en-suite rooms and rooms that have a private bathroom or a shared bathroom. Sometimes you will have sole occupancy of a double room.

Sole use of a double room option
Here you are guaranteed single occupancy of a double room. You will almost always have an en-suite but there may be the odd occasion where you have a separate bathroom.

Can I hire a bike from you?

It is advisable to use your own bike if possible however we realise that it is not always possible to use your own steed so you may wish to hire one. We have two types of road bike and three types of hybrid/touring bikes bike available. Details of these bikes can be found by clicking on the ‘Tour Extras’ tab.

All of our hire bikes come fitted with a cycle computer, water bottle cage, bell, map holder, rear rack and mudguards (hybrids) and front and rear lights. We can also provide a pannier with a multi-tool, pump, puncture repair kit, spare tube and tyre levers at no extra cost. All bikes have flat pedals so if you would prefer to use your own (and maybe your own saddle) then please bring these along with you. We can also provide a helmet for you at no extra cost.

Go To Booking Form

These Booking Conditions, together with our Privacy Policy and where your holiday is booked via our website or over the phone, our Website Terms of Use, together with any other written information we brought to your attention before we confirmed your booking, form the basis of your contract with Peak Tours Ltd, company number 07992506, of 38 Storth Meadow Road, Glossop, Derbyshire, SK13 6UZ ("we", "us", "our"). Please read them carefully as they set out our respective rights and obligations. In these Booking Conditions references to "you" and "your" include the first named person on the booking and all persons on whose behalf a booking is made or any other person to whom a booking is added or transferred.

By making a booking, the first named person on the booking agrees on behalf of all persons detailed on the booking that:

  1. he/she has read these Booking Conditions and has the authority to and does agree to be bound by them;
  2. he/she consents to our use of personal data in accordance with our Privacy Policy and is authorised on behalf of all persons named on the booking to disclose their personal details to us, including where applicable special categories of data (such as information on health conditions or disabilities and dietary requirements);

1. Booking & Paying For Your Arrangements

A booking is made with us when you pay us a deposit (or full payment if you are booking within 60 days of departure) and we issue you with a booking confirmation. All bookings are made subject to the eligibility requirements listed at section 2 below. We reserve the right to return your deposit and decline to issue a booking confirmation at our absolute discretion. A binding contract will come into existence between you and us as soon as we have issued you with a booking confirmation that will confirm the details of your booking and will be sent to you. The accommodation provisions included at section 14 will also apply to your booking.

Upon receipt, if you believe that any details on booking confirmation or any other document are wrong you must advise us immediately as changes cannot be made later and it may harm your rights if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document within ten days of our sending it out.

The balance of the cost of your arrangements (including any applicable surcharge) is due not less than 60 days prior to scheduled departure. You will receive a payment reminder from us prior to your balance becoming due. If we do not receive this balance in full and on time, we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you in which case we shall retain your deposit.

2. Eligibility Requirements

In booking with Peak Tours you understand that there are certain risks and dangers inherent in taking part in a cycling holiday and that by the very nature of the activities you will participate in these may be hazardous to you, including cycling on uneven surfaces, cycling in inclement weather, cycling in close proximity to vehicular traffic and any other activities involving inherently dangerous risks, and you acknowledge that you will be exposed to an element of personal risk. These include the risk of personal injury and death and loss of or damage to your property. You are under a duty to mitigate any risks to yourself as far as is practicable, by taking all reasonable steps to comply with all instructions of your tour leader and the instructions included in your route map, and taking all reasonable steps to ensure your own safety whilst taking part in the holiday.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are at a sufficient level of fitness to take part in your chosen holiday (please also see section 13 - Disabilities and Medical Problems). You will generally be at a sufficient level of fitness if you are able to complete your day's cycling within a reasonable timescale (which shall be set by your tour leader, and in respect of most holidays shall mean completing the day's cycling by 18:30 hours local time at the latest). If you finish your day's cycling beyond this time period, it shall be at the tour leader's absolute discretion as to whether you are at a sufficient level of fitness to continue with your chosen holiday. You are required to follow any safety advice or other instructions provided to you by your tour leader, and wear a cycle helmet and appropriate clothing at all times whilst cycling.

If you are using your own bike, it must be suitable for use for the duration of the route of your chosen holiday. It is your responsibility to arrange for your bike to be transported to the holiday. Your bike must be insured for the duration of your holiday, and your insurance should cover loss or damage to your bike that may occur during your holiday. Peak Tours take great care to ensure that your bike is safe at all times. However, Peak Tours cannot accept any responsibility for any damage to your bike or loss of your bike, including if your bike is stolen during the holiday. This includes times when your bikes are being transported in one of the vans. If a van was stolen containing your bike then you would need to have an adequate insurance policy in place to cover this.

Bike hire is available to be booked at any time up to the start of your holiday, subject to availability. If you choose the bike hire option, your bike will be provided at the beginning of the holiday and returned to ground staff at the end of your holiday.

3. Accuracy

We endeavour to ensure that all the information and prices contained in our advertising material are accurate, however occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct prices and other details in such circumstances. You must check the current price and all other details relating to the arrangements that you wish to book before you make your booking.


Adequate travel insurance is a condition of your contract with us. You must be satisfied that your insurance fully covers all your personal requirements including pre-existing medical conditions, cancellation charges, medical expenses and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising, in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available.

5. Pricing

We reserve the right to amend the price of unsold holidays at any time and correct errors in the prices of confirmed holidays. We also reserve the right to increase the price of confirmed holidays solely to allow for increases which are a direct consequence of changes in:

  1. the price of the carriage of passengers resulting from the cost of fuel or other power sources;
  2. the level of taxes or fees chargeable for services applicable to the holiday imposed by third parties not directly involved in the performance of the holiday, including tourist taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports; and
  3. the exchange rates relevant to the package.

Such variations could include but are not limited to cost changes which are part of our contracts with accommodation suppliers (and their agents), transfer operators and any other transport providers.

You will be charged for the amount of any increase in accordance with this clause. However, if this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 8% of the price of your confirmed holiday (excluding any insurance premiums, amendment charges and/or additional services or travel arrangements), you will have the option of accepting a change to another holiday if we are able to offer one (if this is of lower price you will be refunded the difference in price), or cancelling and receiving a full refund of all monies paid to us, except for any insurance premiums and any amendment charges and/or additional services or travel arrangements. Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 7 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice. We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid if you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy.

Should the price of your holiday go down due to the changes mentioned above, then any refund due will be paid to you less an administrative fee of £10. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place.

There will be no change made to the price of your confirmed holiday within 20 days of your departure nor will refunds be paid during this period.

6. Jurisdiction and Applicable Law

These Booking Conditions and any agreement to which they apply are governed in all respects by English law. We both agree that any dispute, claim or other matter which arises between us out of or in connection with your contract or booking will be dealt with by the Courts of England and Wales only. You may however, choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you live in those places and if you wish to do so.

7.Cutting your holiday short

If you are forced to return home early, we cannot refund the cost of any travel arrangements you have not used. If you cut short your holiday and return home early in circumstances where you have no reasonable cause for complaint about the standard of accommodation and services provided, we will not offer you any refund for that part of your holiday not completed, or be liable for any associated costs you may incur. Depending on the circumstances, your travel insurance may offer cover for curtailment and we suggest that any claim is made directly with them.

8. If You Change Your Booking & Transfers of Bookings

If you wish to change any part of your booking after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you must inform us in writing (which includes by email) as soon as possible. This should be done by the first named person on the booking. Whilst we will do our best to assist, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your requested change. Where we can meet a request, all changes will be subject to payment of any costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers in making this change. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Where we are unable to assist you and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you. A cancellation fee may be payable in accordance with clause 9.

Transfer of Booking:

If you or any member of your party is prevented from travelling, that person(s) may transfer their place to someone else, subject to the following conditions:

  1. that person is introduced by you and satisfies all the conditions applicable to the holiday;
  2. we are notified not less than 7 days before departure;
  3. you pay any fees, charges or other costs arising from the transfer; and
  4. the transferee agrees to these booking conditions and all other terms of the contract between us.

You and the transferee remain jointly and severally liable for payment of all sums. If you are unable to find a replacement, cancellation charges as set out in clause 9 will apply in order to cover our estimated costs. Otherwise, no refunds will be given for passengers not travelling or for unused services.

Important Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended or transferred after they have been confirmed and any alteration could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements.

9. If You Cancel Your Booking Before Departure

If you or any other member of your party decides to cancel your confirmed booking you must notify us in writing (which includes by email). Your notice of cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by us at our offices and will be effective from the date on which we receive it.

Since we incur costs in cancelling your arrangements, you will have to pay the cancellation charges as follows:

Cancellation Charge
More than 60 days before start date Deposit
60 - 0 days 100%

Important Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended after they have been confirmed and any alteration or cancellation could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements in addition to the charge above.

If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges.

Where possible, we will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.

10. If We Change or Cancel

As we plan your holiday arrangements many months in advance we may occasionally have to make changes or cancel your booking and we reserve the right to do so at any time.

Changes: If we make a minor change to your holiday, we will make reasonable efforts to inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure but we will have no liability to you. An example of a minor change would include change of accommodation to another of the same or higher standard.

Occasionally we may have to make a significant change to your confirmed arrangements. Examples of "significant changes" include the following, when made before departure:

  1. A change of accommodation area for the whole or a significant part of your time away.
  2. A change of accommodation to that of a lower standard or classification for the whole or a significant part of your time away.
  3. A change of outward departure time or overall length of your arrangements by more than 12 hours.
  4. A significant change to your itinerary, missing out one or more destination entirely.

Cancellation: We will not cancel your travel arrangements less than 60 days before your departure date, except for reasons of Events Beyond Our Control or failure by you to pay the final balance. We may cancel your holiday before this date if, e.g., the minimum number of clients required for a particular travel arrangement is not reached.

If we have to make a significant change or cancel, we will tell you as soon as possible and if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of:

  1. (for significant major changes) accepting the changed arrangements; or
  2. having a refund of all monies paid; or
  3. if available and where we offer one, accepting an offer of an alternative holiday (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value).

You must notify us of your choice within 7 days of our offer. If we do not hear from you within 7 days, we will contact you again to request notification of your choice. If you fail to respond again, we will assume that you have chosen to accept the change or alternative booking arrangements.


In addition to a full refund of all monies paid by you, we will pay you compensation as detailed below, in the following circumstances:

  1. If, where we make a significant change, you do not accept the changed arrangements and cancel your booking;
  2. If we cancel your booking and no alternative arrangements are available and/or we do not offer one.

The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.

Period before departure in which we notify you Amount you will receive from us*
More than 60 days £0
60-43 days £10
42-29 days £20
28-15 days £30
14-0 days £40

*IMPORTANT NOTE: We will not pay you compensation in the following circumstances:

  1. where we make a minor change;
  2. where we make a significant change or cancel your arrangements more than 60 days before departure;
  3. where we make a significant change and you accept those changed arrangements or you accept an offer of alternative travel arrangements;
  4. where we have to cancel your arrangements as a result of your failure to make full payment on time;
  5. where the change or cancellation by us arises out of alterations to the confirmed booking requested by you;
  6. where we are forced to cancel or change your arrangements due to Events Beyond Our Control (see clause 11).

If we become unable to provide a significant proportion of the arrangements that you have booked with us after you have departed, we will, if possible, make alternative arrangements for you at no extra charge and where those alternative arrangements are of a lower standard, provide you with an appropriate price reduction.

11. Events Beyond Our Control

Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions we will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by "Events Beyond Our Control". For the purposes of these Booking Conditions, Events Beyond Our Control means any event beyond our or our supplier's control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken. Examples include warfare and acts of terrorism (and threat thereof), civil strife, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination or remain at the travel destination, the act of any government or other national or local authority including port or river authorities, industrial dispute, labour strikes, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster, unavoidable technical problems with transport and all similar events outside our or the supplier(s) concerned's control.

Brexit Implications: please note that certain travel arrangements may be affected as a result of the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union. Please rest assured that this is something we will continue to monitor and will advise our customers as soon as possible if we become aware of any confirmed bookings that will be affected. However, since this is something which is completely unprecedented and outside our control, we would treat any such changes as Events Beyond Our Control, and whilst we will endeavour to provide suitable alternative arrangements or refunds where possible, we will not be liable to pay you any compensation.

12. Special Requests

Any special requests must be advised to us at the time of booking e.g. diet, room location, a particular facility at a hotel etc. You should then confirm your requests in writing. Whilst every effort will be made by us to try and arrange your reasonable special requests, we cannot guarantee that they will be fulfilled. The fact that a special request has been noted on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation or that it has been passed on to the supplier is not confirmation that the request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part unless the request has been specifically confirmed by us. We do not accept bookings that are conditional upon any special request being met.

13. Disabilities and Medical Problems

We are not a specialist disabled holiday company, but we will do our utmost to cater for any special requirements you may have. If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability which may affect your booking, please provide us with full details before you make your booking so that we can try to advise you as to the suitability of your chosen arrangements. We may require you to produce a doctor's certificate certifying that you are fit to participate. Acting reasonably, if we are unable to properly accommodate the needs of the person(s) concerned, we will not confirm your booking or if you did not give us full details at the time of booking, we will cancel it and impose applicable cancellation charges when we become aware of these details. If, during your holiday, we become aware of a medical problem or disability which may affect your health and safety or the health and safety of others, which you did not disclose at the time of booking, we reserve the right to postpone, restrict or cancel your involvement in any cycling activities, at the tour leader's sole discretion.

14. Accommodation Provisions


If you choose the B&B only option you will stay in a mixture of B&B's, hotels and country pubs. If you are travelling with a friend then you will be roomed together in a twin or if you're with your partner then you will be in a double room (or a twin if you prefer). If you are travelling alone then you will be roomed with another member of the group in a twin or triple room (same sex). The actual stopovers may change from the advertised accommodation providers, if this happens then an equivalent standard of accommodation will be used nearby. The majority of the rooms you stay in will be en-suite however you may stay in a couple of rooms that are not en-suite.


If you choose the single room option, you will have your own room for the duration of the holiday. This will be in either a single room or single occupancy of a double room in a mixture of en-suite and non en-suite rooms.


If you choose this option, you will have a guaranteed double room to yourself throughout the tour. You will always have an en-suite each night of your holiday. There may be an exceptionally rare occasion when you have a separate bathroom but this is very unlikely. Occasionally you may have a twin room to yourself if a double room isn't available but again, this is rare.


This option is only available for the fourteen day LEJOG tour. If you choose the YHA option you will stay in a mixture of hostels, hotels & B&B's staying in dormitory rooms, single rooms, twin rooms & triples.

15. Complaints

We make every effort to ensure that your holiday arrangements run smoothly but if you do have a problem during your holiday, please inform the relevant supplier (e.g. your hotelier) and your tour leader immediately who will endeavour to put things right. If your complaint is not resolved locally, please contact 07495 023 022 or 01457851462.

If the problem cannot be resolved and you wish to complain further, you must send formal written notice of your complaint to us at our office, ideally within 28 days of the end of your stay, giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you. Failure to follow the procedure set out in this clause may affect ours and the applicable supplier's ability to investigate your complaint, and will affect your rights under this contract.

You can access the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform at This ODR platform is a means of registering your complaint with us; it will not determine how your complaint should be resolved. Please Note: the ODR platform is unlikely to be available for use by UK consumers at such a point that the UK ceases to be a member of the European Union.

16. Your Behaviour

All our customers are expected to conduct themselves in an orderly and acceptable manner and not to disrupt the enjoyment of others. If in our opinion or in the opinion of any hotel manager, tour leader or any other person in authority, your behaviour or that of any member of your party is causing or is likely to cause distress, danger or annoyance to any other customers or any third party, or damage to property, or to cause a delay or diversion to transportation, we reserve the right to terminate your booking with us immediately. In the event of such termination our liability to you and/or your party will cease and you and/or your party will be required to leave your accommodation or other arrangements immediately. We will have no further obligations to you and/or your party. No refunds for lost accommodation or any other arrangements will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of termination. You and/or your party may also be required to pay for loss and/or damage caused by your actions and we will hold you and each member of your party jointly and individually liable for any damage or losses caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or losses must be paid directly to the hotel manager or other supplier prior to departure. If you fail to make payment, you will be responsible for meeting any claims (including legal costs) subsequently made against us as a result of your actions together with all costs we incur in pursuing any claim against you. We cannot be held responsible for the actions or behaviour of other guests or individuals who have no connection with your booking arrangements or with us.

17. Our Responsibilities

  1. We will accept responsibility for the arrangements we agree to provide or arrange for you as an "organiser" under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018, as set out below and as such, we are responsible for the proper provision of all travel services included in your package, as set out in your confirmation invoice. Subject to these Booking Conditions, if we or our suppliers negligently perform or arrange those services and we don't remedy or resolve your complaint within a reasonable period of time, and this has affected the enjoyment of your package holiday you may be entitled to an appropriate price reduction or compensation or both. You must inform us without undue delay of any failure to perform or improper performance of the travel services included in this package. The level of any such price reduction or compensation will be calculated taking into consideration all relevant factors such as but not limited to: following the complaints procedure as described in these Booking Conditions and the extent to which ours or our employees' or suppliers' negligence affected the overall enjoyment of your holiday. Please note that it is your responsibility to show that we or our supplier(s) have been negligent if you wish to make a claim against us.
  2. We will not be responsible or pay you compensation for any injury, illness, death, loss, damage, expense, cost or other claim of any description if it results from:
    1. the acts and/or omissions of the person affected; or
    2. the acts and/or omissions of a third party unconnected with the provision of the services contracted for and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable; or
    3. Events Beyond Our Control (as defined in clause 11).
  3. We limit the amount of compensation we may have to pay you if we are found liable under this clause:
    1. loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions and money: the maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is an amount equivalent to the excess on your insurance policy which applies to this type of loss per person in total because you are required to have adequate insurance in place to cover any losses of this kind.
    2. Claims not falling under (a) above and which don't involve injury, illness or death: the maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is up to three times the price paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you or your party has not received any benefit at all from your booking.
    3. Claims in respect of international travel by sea and rail, or any stay in a hotel:
      1. The extent of our liability will in all cases be limited as if we were carriers under the appropriate Conventions, which include The Athens Convention (with respect to sea travel); The Berne/Cotif Convention (with respect to rail travel) and The Paris Convention (with respect to hotel arrangements). You can ask for copies of these Conventions from our offices. Please contact us. In addition, you agree that the operating carrier or transport company's own 'Conditions of Carriage' will apply to you on that journey. When arranging transportation for you, we rely on the terms and conditions contained within these international conventions and those 'Conditions of Carriage'. You acknowledge that all of the terms and conditions contained in those 'Conditions of Carriage' form part of your contract with us, as well as with the transport company and that those 'Conditions of Carriage' shall be deemed to be included by reference into this contract.
      2. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question.
  4. It is a condition of our acceptance of liability under this clause that you notify any claim to us and our supplier(s) strictly in accordance with the complaints procedure set out in these conditions.
  5. Where any payment is made, the person(s) receiving it (and their parent or guardian if under 18 years) must also assign to us or our insurers any rights they may have to pursue any third party and must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require.
  6. Please note, we cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss or expense or other sum(s) of any description:
    1. which on the basis of the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we breached our contract with you;
    2. relate to any business;
    3. indirect or consequential loss of any kind.
  7. We will not accept responsibility for services or facilities which do not form part of our agreement or where they are not advertised on our website. . For example any excursion you book whilst away, or any service or facility which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you.
  8. Where it is impossible for you to return to your departure point as per the agreed return date of your package, due to "unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances", we shall provide you with any necessary accommodation (where possible, of a comparable standard) for a period not exceeding three nights per person. Please note that the 3 night cap does not apply to persons with reduced mobility, pregnant women or unaccompanied minors, nor to persons needing specific medical assistance, provided we have been notified of these particular needs at least 48 hours before the start of your holiday. For the purposes of this clause, "unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances" mean warfare, acts of terrorism, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which make it impossible to travel safely back to your departure point.

18. Excursions

Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are on holiday are not part of your contracted arrangements with us. For any excursion or other tour that you book, your contract will be with the operator of the excursion or tour and not with us. We are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour or for anything that happens during the course of its provision by the operator.

19. Insolvency Protection

In accordance with the requirements of the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018, we provide full financial protection for all package holidays that we sell, by way of a separate account held by HSBC.

If you book arrangements other than package holiday from us, your monies will not be financially protected. Please ask us for further details.

20. Passport, Visa and Immigration Requirements & Health Formalities

It is your responsibility to check and fulfill the passport, visa, health and immigration requirements applicable to your itinerary. We can only provide general information about this. You must check requirements for your own specific circumstances with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates and your own doctor as applicable. Requirements do change and you must check the up to date position in good time before departure.

Most countries now require passports to be valid for at least 6 months after your return date. If your passport is in its final year, you should check with the Embassy of the country you are visiting. For further information contact the Passport Office on 0870 5210410 or visit

Special conditions apply for travel to the USA, and all passengers must have individual machine readable passports. Please check For European holidays you should obtain a completed and issued form EHIC prior to departure.

Up to date travel advice can be obtained from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, visit

Non British passport holders, including other EU nationals, should obtain up to date advice on passport and visa requirements from the Embassy, High Commission or Consulate of your destination or country(ies) through which you are travelling.

We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel, or incur any other loss because you have not complied with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities. You agree to reimburse us in relation to any fines or other losses which we incur as a result of your failure to comply with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities.

21. Conditions of Suppliers

Many of the services which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions which will form part of your contract with us. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier's liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions. Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions are available on request from us or the supplier concerned.

22. Prompt Assistance

If, whilst you are on holiday, you find yourself in difficulty for any reason, we will offer you such prompt assistance as is appropriate in the circumstances. In particular, we will provide you with appropriate information on health services, local authorities and consular assistance, and assistance with distance communications and finding alternative travel arrangements. Where you require assistance which is not owing to any failure by us, our employees or sub-contractors we will not be liable for the costs of any alternative travel arrangements or other such assistance you require. Any supplier or transport supplier may however pay for or provide refreshments and/or appropriate accommodation and you should make a claim directly to them. Subject to the other terms of these Booking Conditions, we will not be liable for any costs, fees or charges you incur in the above circumstances, if you fail to obtain our prior authorisation before making your own travel arrangements. Furthermore, we reserve the right to charge you a fee for our assistance in the event that the difficulty is caused intentionally by you or a member of your party, or otherwise through your or your party's negligence.

23. Delays, Missed Transport Arrangements and other Travel Information

If you or any member of your party misses a transport arrangement, it is cancelled or you are subject to a delay of over 3 hours for any reason, you must contact us and the transport supplier concerned immediately.

We cannot accept liability for any delay which is due to any of the reasons set out in clause 11 of these Booking Conditions.

24. Foreign Office Advice

You are responsible for making yourself aware of Foreign Office advice in regard to the safety of the countries and areas in which you will be travelling and to make your decisions accordingly. Advice from the Foreign Office to avoid or leave a particular country may constitute Events Beyond Our Control. (See clause 11).

Outstanding, these guys were the best, always happy, hard working and eager to please. From day 1 they went over the top to keep us happy.. thank you Matt, Paul and Mike.. you kept us organised and where we should be.
Absolutely brilliant!!!!!

Caroline Gayton 14 Day LEJOG August 2022

These two weeks were possibly the best in my many years of roadbiking. Perfect organisation, fantastic locations, great routes, luck with the weather (understatement of the year!), unbelievably nice guys in the group. All in all, memories that'll last a lifetime.
Thanks for a great experience that truly enriched our lives!

Andreas and Susanne 14 Day LEJOG August 2022

This was my 7th tour, with the 8th already booked. I cannot praise the PT team highly enough.
Fantastic support from Mike, Matt and Paul. I'd toured with Mike and Matt last year D2D, so it was great to see them again.
Super. I love the way all the tour is arranged

Steve Harridge 14 Day LEJOG August 2022

"This was my first organised tour . The brew vans were definitely a highlight of the day, always well stocked with all the energy loaded snacks and fresh fruit to help you achieve your daily goals.My favourite part of the route was cycling through Edinburgh exploring the Scottish highlands . Climbing up through the Ski areas was amazing.
I would definitely use Peak Tours again."

Tony Hubble 14 Day LEJOG June 2022

"This was our third tour with Peak. All trips were excellent and we were in our best shape for this one so the riding was even more enjoyable as we could really take in more of the incredible views and sights. The guides provide a personal touch that means a lot and we know that we would not be able to do this trip/challenge without their support.

Nigel gave everyone an overview of 'daily checking your bike over' which was awesome, along with his jokes! I saw Andy behind the scenes making sure my rental bike was in good running order a few times. He also confirmed that I was happy with the bike, which I was, and arranged soapy water bike washing at several of our stops. Dave helped get Chris' rental bike rim and wheel switched out and ensured he was riding safely. Jim's flowers and food arrangements on the brew stop table were artful and delicious and his encouraging words regarding the tougher climbs was great! "

Laurel Smith 14 Day LEJOG June 2022

I was that impressed I'm looking at a follow up tour maybe next year. It went better than I anticipated and because of that I believe it was a real success. I can't find fault with anything unless you can control the weather.
I can't fault the organisation. It was brilliant. I have had a fantastic time and this is down to the organisation and the effort put in by the staff who provided the support. It went like clock work due to their commitment and efforts.

Oliver Keene 14 Day LEJOG June 2022

What can I say? Mike, Mark and Wendy were superb! Just right - professional, encouraging, friendly, helpful, a credit to Peak Tours!
Great tour, ambition realised, many memories made.
Nothing more to say - excellent!

Claire Houlihan 14 Day LEJOG June 2022

The tour exceeded my expectations, which were already high due to a strong recommendation from one of my cycle club colleagues
It was a great mix of the easy and difficult, with days 11 and 12 really making you feel you'd achieved something by the end

Steve Watson 14 Day LEJOG May 2022

I thought the guides Si, Matt, and Will were just superb. Friendly ,Helpful, Paractical , Sensible. A tribute to your company. Ive never had my bag carried up to my room on any trip with Exodus or Explore and that was such a nice touch.

Simon Farmer 2021

It was beyond spectacular and beyond anything I could have dreamt of.

Anon 2021

I generally have a rule after doing something or buying something, would I do it again and would I recommend it to a friend, and the answer is yes, it was superbly run, well organised, wanted for nothing apart from smoother roads in Scotland :-)

Paul O'Day 2021

Excellent from end to end.

Judith Darcy 2021

EXCELLENT, AMAZING. So, so glad I did it. Running on adrenaline now!

Joy Knowles 2021

One of my best cycling experiences

Ali Allen 2021

You need a category above excellent called ‘Absolutely Amazing’ , I would tick that box!

Glenn Grant 2021

Have to say from start of booking to the end, and the exceptional support on tour from guides Si and Julie, it can’t be faulted. It all felt very personal

Alaine Harman 2021

Peak tours have made this massive challenge both achievable and enjoyable.

Andrea Marshall 2021

I had the best time, lovely people, fab guides, well organised. I didnt have to worry about anything... and so pleased with what i achieved....

Diana Boucher

We had a fantastic experience and met lots of lovely people, and were really pleased to achieve an ambition.

Judith Waring 2021

I had a ball and marked the end of my career in some style with this adventure. Thank you.

Barry Nicholls 2021

LeJog was always going to be a big challenge, but Peak Tours made it as easy as possible to make it happen. Some lovely unexpected touches (like putting our bags into our hotel rooms so they were there on arrival), a plentiful supply of fresh fruit, berries, nuts and other snacks, some amazing lunches (especially at the Wee House), but most of all, a wonderful set of leaders and riders - all made it a memorable trip.

Catherine Matthews 2021

We were very lucky with the weather, the rest was down to good organisation a great team and a really nice group

Ed Matthews 2021

I'd certainly be happy to recommend Peak Tours to my friends.

Richard Fryer 2021

Travelled with other cycling companies before - peak tours way above the rest and would highly recommend on every front. This was incredibly tough for me physically but they got me to JOG with a mix of warmth, humour and TLC. Every person treated the same so each could achieve it in their own way at their own pace - fantastic guides and a fantastic group!

Theresa Robinson 2021

The best tour I have ever been on

Libby Pannett 2021

A wonderful experience, brilliantly led, I loved it.

Kate Holbrook 2021

For me Lejog is a once in a lifetime trip, I couldn't recommend Peak Tours more highly, together you make what is a huge physical challenge, entirely possible. Impressive team effort guys, thank you!

Sophie Peach 2021

Would definitely do another tour

Alex Robertson 2021

Great route, tour guides were excellent and struck the right balance of support and space

Graham Mckean 2021

Brilliant trip and the level of support provided meant we achieved something we thought might be beyond us much more easily and enjoyably than we expected. I also thought you dealt with all the Covid delays etc extremely well.

John Watson 2021

This was a well organised, fun tour; with a lovely group of people. Now if you could just guarantee the weather......

Tonita Marr 2021

Really impressed - would recommend to others.

Victoria Reed 2021

I was pretty apprehensive before the tour as although pretty fit I am not a club cyclist and was nervous about 14 consecutive days of cycling with the amount of elevation involved. The way the tour was organised made it achievable - only having to think about doing the cycling (all other logistics dealt with by the support team!), divide the day into 4 efforts etc . Thank you

Candida Gil 2021

Absolutely first class, any cycle trip I go on will be with Peak Tours

Leslie Craig 2021

I can’t add anything other than it was a great experience

Chris 2021

It was one of the most amazing things that I have done. As a divorced and middle-aged woman, I felt completely supported and cared for at every step of the way.

Catherine Wiggins 2021

I loved my LEJOG trip!

Lisa Roberts 2021

I've been on a few cycle tours / trip and this was by far the best

Paul Jackson 2021

Exceptional - brilliant scenic routes, avoiding traffic; delicious and varied brew stops & great pub lunches in lovely locations; friendly, supportive and highly competent tour guides; clear, easy to follow route notes; brilliant organisation and correspondance before and during the tour. I would not even consider any other cycle touring company. Peak Tours far surpassed my expectations and this was the best organised holiday I've ever had.... Peak Tours are the Peak of Cycle Tours

Francesca Cooper 2021

Peak Tours was recommended to me and I have already recommended it to others. I went on my own which could have been worrying but everything was taken care of, I made loads of friends and had a fantastic time.

Caroline Hemmington 2021

Just fantastic - would do it again in a heartbeat!

Tim Hill 2021

There are many companies offering bike and LEJOG tours - I believe I chose the right one, offering manageable distances (and hills!) and a sensible schedule to enable us to enjoy the tour.

Tizzie Chandler 2021

Probably the best tour I have been on. The group was great and the guides were excellent, worked well as a team, fun, helpful and supportive. It was brilliant thank you

Fenella Ritson 2021

It was absolutely brilliant. I wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you for another holiday which I’ll remember forever!

Anon 2021

Peak tours is a great company to complete any challenge with. They are a small company with attention to detail. I did the 2021 Lejog for my first challenge and couldn’t of asked for more support and advice as I went. Despite Covid restrictions still in place they made it an amazing experience.

Dave Watmore 2021

Nigel, Matt and Mike (guides) were fantastic and did a great job.  Always on hand and happy to help. Pre tour organisation and options were also very good.  Will (and already have) recommend to friends.

Paul Hocking 2019

Fantastic route, brilliant staff, wonderful and disparate bunch of fellow cyclists. Iconic ride with all the logistics taken care of and 18 new friends added. Quite the most fun to be had on a bike. Thanks for putting together such a tour. In particular impressed with your route planning. In advance, slightly apprehensive about traffic and route finding with the Garmin - but neither were an issue. Thanks again and keep up the nice work!

Rupert Hanson 2019

The tour organisers were amazing and worked so hard.

Jane Standerwick 2019

I initially chose the company because it fit within my timescales. I now will unreservedly recommend the tour company because of my experience. It was a nice touch to have bags put into rooms so that we only had to stumble in. Spotting the red brew van became a highlight and incentive to keep going when feeling tired. I liked that lunch was preplanned- it meant one less thing to worry about and one more thing to enjoy.

Anne Gahan 2019

I had a great time, would recommend Peak Tours and will probably look at booking with you again.

Heather Whyte 2019

The pits stops were out of this world - doubt if I could have completed the ride without them!! I will wear my Peak Tours vest with pride and recommend you to all my friends. The experience of a lifetime.

Stephen Tyley 2019

The guides were always smiling, never flustered, always ready to help. 5 star.

Patrick Bainbridge 2019

Unforgettable! An overused word sometimes but not in this case. Will never forget the whole trip.

Rowland Cleverley 2019

Overall I thought the tour was excellent. Apart from some personal tough hours days 4 and 5, I genuinely enjoyed every minute.

Anon 2019

I look forward to booking another Peak Tours trip in the future and will persuade my wife to join us next time.

Anthony Rissbrook 2019

I think you got the tour organisation just right. Also, I never felt that the pennies were being watched which is commendable and made for a relaxed atmosphere.

I would happily recommend this tour, and the company as a whole, to anyone.

Andy Rayner Aug/Sept 2018

Definitely one of the best things I’ve done. I’ll be strongly recommending Peak Tours to friends etc…

Mark Dixon September 2018

Consistently excellent accommodation.

We are planning to do another tour with you in two years. I cannot think of a single thing you could have done better.

Terry Hutt June 2018

The overall experience was very good – I’d recommend Peak Tours very highly indeed for anyone thinking of doing a cycling tour.

The logistics were very well organised – getting bikes to the start and then home again, brew stops, lunch stops, taking bags to rooms etc – all very well thought out and implemented.

Stephen Eason June 2018

Clearly Peak Tours has a route that prioritises small country lanes, bike paths and the least congested routes possible. There were many days with lovely countryside and water views. The route up to Cairngorm was my personal favourite.

The tour was very well organised throughout.

Ann Wengert & Joanne Gras

Amazing variety of different accommodation places added to the interest. Most were very accommodating of cyclists needs.

Congratulations! Great routes through places I was not expecting to be so nice.

Excellent organisation, hard to find any room for improvement.

I intend to book further tours with Peak Tours!

I cannot think of anything that could make the tour better!!

Colin Beesley July/Aug 2018

I don't know much about the route options.... but I felt the route was brilliantly conceived.... I don't know what % of the trip was done on 'busy' roads....but if felt like a very small %. The way you manage to circumnavigate Manchester without us realising it was phenomenal. Equally the route through the Cairngorns was challenging but we wouldn't have changed it. Other highlights were the early days with the ferry crossings and the lovely climb up the upper Lune valley.

Simon Daniels July/Aug 2018

The route was as good as it could possibly have been. There is no way I could have found my way across the UK on my own.

It was an incredible trip of a lifetime! I could not have done it on my own. And I wouldn’t have been able to do it for lesson money if I did it on my own.

Peak Tours provide tremendous value for the experience.

Edward Yoder June/July 2018

Scenic. Beautiful.

Loved the cycle path bits and countryside through the Lake District, Cairngorms & above. Good that busy roads were kept to a minimum.


The food provided was excellent. The guides were brilliant at organising lovely things to eat/drink. They could not have been better. Thank you

Excellent. Each day was better than the previous one.

June/July 2018

The numerous country lanes on the route made it a very special journey.

The organisation, communication and most importantly the caring supportive nature of our guides Dave, Fiona and Joe was exceptional.

Robery Loder - Symonds

Amazing route – cycling through very beautiful scenery most of the time.

Amazingly well organised.


I have just completed LEJOG and have had one of the most enjoyable and satisfying holidays of my life. The Peak Tours package and support from booking, pre-tour and especially during the tour was 1st class. I am now home and thinking of a new cycling escapade for next year and it will be with Peak Tours.

Annon May 2018

The tour organisation far exceeded expectations – Best group cycling holiday I’ve been on by an Irish mile

The tour was the BEST EVER – I have been extolling your virtues to all my cycling friends.

Not really any suggestions for improvements, it was all brilliant. Just have to decide which one to tackle next year…..

This was my first holiday on my own for over 45 years. I felt comfortable from the minute I arrived.  Well done!!

Shirley Hume Aug/Sept 2018

I was impressed with Peak Tours approach from the outset and have remained so since. The tour itself was great fun and much enjoyed.

Adrian Juffs Aug/Sept 2018

Guides and group made this an excellent experience and one that I will remember fondly!

Thank you Peak Tours

Annon August 2018

The whole tour was a pleasure, ran with military precision.

Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or book another tour.

Mike Thoburn August 2018

Route seemed good to me. I saw parts of the country I’d never experienced before and there was always something unique to see every day, so it wasn’t just a grind (as parts of a ride across USA would be).

The food was a highlight for me.

Just a fantastic experience. I hope to be able to join another Peak Tours adventure soon.

Tim Norman July/Aug 2018

The accommodation was really good. Some were outstanding – Moffatt was amazing.

The route seemed perfect. The first couple of days got us used to short sharp hills. The climbing in Scotland was magnificent. I loved the Lecht.

Great tour. I had a brilliant time and I feel I have really achieved something (with your help). Thank you.

Richard Seppings July/August 2018

No suggestions on how the trip could be improved only sincere thanks to Dave, Simon & Matt who were exemplary. I’m already saving for next trip!

Meg Hepworth August 2018

I was really pleased with the tour overall.

Loved the professionalism while being so friendly and relaxed – fantastic 2 weeks.

Jonathan Radford August 2018


The tour organisation was simple excellent

The guides made this great, but the route, brew van, B&Bs and company made it an epic experience

Carole Terry August 2018

Loved the route from beginning to end. I was a little worried before the start of LEJOG in case we’d be cycling on busy roads, but that really wasn’t the case. Lancashire to Cumbria was fabulous. Day 12 cycling up the Lecht was awesome!!

Brew stops were always in the right place just at the right time with an excellent selection of food. The organised lunches were always very good overall.

The tour organisation was faultless. We didn’t need to worry about anything, leaving us to just get on our bikes and cycle!

Peak Tours provided a seamless LEJOG trip. The organisation was brilliant. John & I had a wonderful holiday – 2 weeks of endless eating and laughing!

Fiona and John Burden August 2018

The route was beyond excellent – great scenery, quiet roads. Well worth paying for this insider knowledge rather than trying to organise myself.

Would definitely book with you again.

Charlotte Denton July/Aug 2018

Excellent range of hostels and B&Bs! Love the way we get to meet the local community along the way!

The route notes were fabulous! So detailed. We looked forward to reading notes the evening before the ride!

Excellent tour organisation. You guys have thought about lots of things – thank you.

My best ever 2 week holiday!

I wish I could suggest something……but it was just so good that I can’t! Hope to join another tour sometime soon. Thank you again for the most fabulous cycle tour ever! Loved it! p/s I am much, much more confident of my ability now!

Reva Cope July 2018

The accommodation greatly exceeded my expectations. Almost without exception the hosts were welcoming, provided very clean facilities and an excellent breakfast!!

The route was challenging but achievable. I liked the fact that we avoided the busy roads.

The route notes were first class. They provided a welcome supplement to the Garmin and provided a little ‘light reading’ the night before. Profile gradients especially helpful.

I couldn’t fault the tour organisation. In terms of the logistics required, shifting kit on a daily basis for 24 people, ensuring the right bag went in to the right room, I thought it was a great feat of project management by Tina and her team.  Brilliant!!

The tour far exceeded my expectations. Peak Tours are a superb company and I would thoroughly recommend them to friends and other cyclists.

Tony Leach July 2018

The tour overall was everything, and more, than I ever expected. I would definitely recommend this tour and your company. I am looking in to doing a future tour with Peak Tours.

Stephen Warne July 2018

Peak Tours are certainly top of their game! Having just ridden Lands End to John O’Groats, everything was faultless, a great route, great accommodation, a great support team helping us all get through and making the whole journey a pleasure. They arranged great weather too!

Special thanks for going the extra mile, as I have a problem with heights. Not an issue – they took me over the big bridges (Severn and Forth bridges) in the support van. They also accommodated my dietary needs as a diabetic and vegetarian.

Having recovered from this ride I am already thinking about next years ride with Peak Tours.

Adam Shepherd July 2018

If Carling did LEJOG routes……

Excellent from start to finish. Stunning scenery, good roads, accurate GPX files and sensible routes round grotty bits and urban centres. I can’t praise the route makers enough. This made the trip extra special.

With the food provided we wanted for nothing. A good mix of sweet and savoury and always in plentiful supply. The crew were great in getting in any requests and special treats.

Everything on the tour ran smoothly and the crew took all the stresses of doing a 14 day tour from you.

From booking to finishing everything was seamless. The route was spectacular, the crew supportive. I can’t rate Peak Tours highly enough.

Rob Stilltoe July 2018

As well as raving about the whole event, I’ve mentioned so many times to friends how fantastic Peak Tours were; the Brew Van, the bags being delivered to the rooms; access to a day bag; Tina, Tori and Simon were great!

Couldn’t fault the tour leader/backup; just part of the very well organised setup.

The tour overall tbh was better than excellent! I’m already eyeing your France Coast to Med and looks like I have a few friends who may join me Summer 2020.  There’s no point doing any of these events with any other company.

Martyn Brinton July 2018

One of the best bits about this trip was the route. Minimal main roads, lots to see, very picturesque. Use of the Garmin was essential and hiring them out a great idea and must be continued.

Lots of fun through the cities!

The tour organisation was spot on; efficient and unobtrusive. Lots of hard work behind the scenes is the only way to achieve this – WELL DONE.

Peak Tours were recommended by friends and now I will add my recommendations too.

Suggestion – Just keep the standards as high as they are now and that will be fine.

Dream team without fault.

Enthusiastic, helpful, caring, knowledgeable. I’d trust them to take us anywhere.

Jane Hornsby

Fantastic – amazing route – felt safe and I really liked that the busy routes were avoided a lot of the time.

Lunch was great – as were the brew stops. Plenty of variety.

Group size was just right. Plenty of opportunity to go with group or cycle alone. Great group.

The tour organisation was so smooth from start to finish.

The tour overall was excellent – totally exceeded my expectations.

It was perfect – no need to change anything.

Kevin Connaire July 2018

The route was a pleasure to ride – amazing in fact!

I didn’t expect provision of snacks at the brew breaks – very welcomed, social and a fantastic choice of fuel. Particularly good was the fresh fruit, fruit & nuts, fig rolls, everything actually.

Fantastically organised. Logistics must’ve been a nightmare, but everything went so smoothly. Well done!

Amazing! Already recommending Peak Tours to anyone who will listen!

Gail Philipsen June/July 2018

An absolutely great, well thought out route. Was constantly amazed by all the different cycle routes and beautiful views. Was great that we could keep to quieter roads too.

Couldn’t fault the tour organisation. Everything happened as we were told it would.

Sarah Chevillard - June/July 2018

Great route, great guides, great weather – was a near perfect experience!

Howard Ryujin June/July 2018

An excellent fortnight, challenging, good company, well organised.

A.T. Blackwood June/July 2018

I loved the fact of being on quiet routes where you could appreciate the beauty of the countryside. It was the reason for our trip and we were not disappointed.  Thank you.

The brew stops were a welcome sight on many occasions after a hard ride, and with a warm welcome it was great.

Pre-tour information was amazing. Questions were answered quickly and precisely. Thank you.

Organisation - Brilliant to come on a tour like this and all you have to concentrate on is riding your bike, all other worries or thoughts are taken care of by the tour leader and guides. Amazing.

Annon May 2018

We were blown away by some of the scenery on the route. The roads were quiet in the rural areas and the cycle paths were great in the urban areas.

The lunch stops were very good and the food was good quality with plenty of it. The brew vans were much needed at times and everything you could ask for was provided.

When I initially found out the group size was 25 I thought that it would be too large. However, with everybody going off at their own pace it wasn’t a problem and it was lovely to meet other people.

I couldn’t fault anything about the organisation of the tour. The brew vans broke up the day and were well stocked. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful with bike repairs. Nothing was too much trouble. It was great having the bags taken to our rooms.

Far exceeded my expectations in every way. Plus no rain on tour!!

Sally Spencer & Alun Rees May 2018

I think the route was fantastic and probably the best bit of the whole trip. I was amazed that we could bike away from cara, towns and people for so much of the trip.

The “Brew Van” was brilliant.

Simon Holmes May 2018

In terms of tour organisation nothing was left to chance. When a snag was encountered it was dealt with quickly to the satisfaction of everyone. Great professionalism was shown in the tour organisation considering the need to plan a route, find food and lodging, bike maintenance and transportation of gear. Also, when you allow for the unpredictable nature of 25 people coming together for the first time and living in a bubble for two weeks, you have to plan for anything. It was virtually flawless.

It was obvious that this is a labour of love for everyone at Peak Tours and years of hard work and care have been devoted to making sure the tour is a pleasure for the riders. All we had to worry about was cycling.

Jon Magidsohn - Aug/Sept 2018

Accommodation was generally exceptional. Some wonderful hosts.

The route was an extremely impressive way to see the UK (bottom to top) – would like to return to see Ireland and perhaps Dover to North West route.

We have been on a few guided/supported & non-supported trips. This was by far the most challenging, yet most rewarding trip and head & shoulders above the rest in quality & value.

Dan & Gail Philippson May 2018

Brilliant route, the star of the show. I struggle to think it could be better.

Great guys in the trip. Always helpful, friendly, hard working and clearly enjoying the job. All accommodation was sorted with bags in rooms on arrival, great.

Jamie Gray - May 2018

Had a great time on the tour overall and would not hesitate to recommend Peak Tours to others or to go on another tour ourselves.

Paula Broad - May 2018

I couldn’t fault the tour organisation. Was very pleased that you offered to take my bike down and bring it back for me, saved me so much hassle of getting it down there and back on the train.

Thank you!!!

It’s very much appreciated!!

The tour overall was absolutely brilliant.

Will definitely be doing another one in the near future 10/10

Alan Withers - August 18

Heidi and I very much enjoyed the superior care and attention provided by Johnny, Alli and Hamish during our 1000 mile challenge.

We both felt very well cared for, and fully informed throughout the journey and are very happy that we chose to use your company to help us achieve our LEJOG goal.

Jacob Heilbron June/July 2018

Many Thanks for a great tour. Dave, Jim and Joe are exceptional talents and worked well as a team, nothing was too much trouble or phased them. Chapeau!

The route was exceptional with little or no traffic and getting great views of well known landmarks as well as the beautiful countryside. The brew van is a great addition and a welcome sight, it allowed the group to regularly come together and become cohesive - even if we did overdo the snacks!!

In short, I’d have no hesitation in recommending Peak Tours to anyone considering a guided cycle tour - keep up the good work!

Paul McHugh, May 14 Day LEJOG

Route: Absolutely brilliant, quiet roads, interesting and variety of terrain. Sometimes challenging especially through towns/cities but guides and fellow cyclists very helpful and supportive. Brought us together as a group.

Gave us the confidence and support to achieve the whole tour, especially when you are unsure that you can do it. Absolutely would recommend to friends, brilliant enjoyable challenge.

Mary Veltom, July/Aug 2017

The accommodation was above my expectations, consistently comfortable and nice rooms. The fact that many of the B&B owners are regulars at hosting LEJOG groups was an added bonus as they were so welcoming and understood the whole experience – and often had some good stories about previous groups to entertain us!

I’m amazed at how little time we spent on big, busy roads (though I think I might have missed one of the busier days). The route was brilliant – a mixture of different terrain, challenging enough without being overwhelming for someone like me who’s not been cycling for long. And stunning scenery! Seeing the landscape change as we travelled north was one of the things I was really looking forward to about the trip, and it didn’t disappoint.

Despite my stupid accident, the LEJOG trip goes down as one of my favourite ever holidays (and I’ve had some pretty good holidays); getting to spend all day every day on my bike, being outside in amazing scenery, being surrounded by a group of great people…and all in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere that the Peak Tours guys all helped to set.

Normally I love an opportunity to provide suggestions on improving things but I’m struggling to think of anything. Keep doing what you’re doing! It’s great.

Ali Turnbull, July/Aug 2017

To get a 1000 mile route through the UK with achievable distances each day is a feat in itself! I thought it was a very good route with different types of challenges each day. Some stunning scenery on the way (despite the rain and headwinds!) Never knew there were so many different types of tarmac… or sheep…

About 25 in the group – great group of people and quickly meant the ‘hares’ got to know the tortoises more! Size about right – meant there was a chance to recognise others early on and therefore watch out for and support one another en route. Also, not to large a group from a logistics point of view.

Everything appeared to run as planned and nothing seemed too much trouble for Dave, Hamish and Mark – very calm and supportive. Any problems that may have arisen en route were dealt with well. Breaking each day down into brew and lunch stops helped a great deal, especially on some of the harder days. And having the luggage in the room on arrival was great!

The group also helped with the organisation by supporting the guides too with the daily logistics and from what I could see not causing any major problems.

Very calm, well organised team that appeared to work well together. Very supportive and encouraging  and fun to be with.

I had not ridden such distances each day for over 30 years and it was a huge personal challenge, but the support from your team, the group and also from family and friends got me through it. Tough at times, but it is advertised as a challenge! But also loads of fun too and really enjoyed it. So chuffed I made it.

Catherine Richardson, Sept 2017

Good mix of group dinners and freedom to do your own thing. Breakfasts were spot on and the mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks did the job.

At first I thought the group size was too big but it wasn’t an issue. Enjoyed socialising, meeting new people, hearing their story for doing LEJOG and having a laugh.

Very impressive getting so many people from one end of the country to the other over a two week period.

Really warm feeling that we were in safe hands every step of the way. Dave, Mark and Hamish  are great guys and did a great job.

Great experience and lifelong memories. Peak Tours helped me achieve something on my bucket list and I’m very grateful. The tour was very good. Pity about the weather but you can’t blame Peak Tours for that!

John Carr, Sept 2017

The brew stops were an excellent idea and our guides went out of their way to ensure an excellent range of snacks. Simply exceptional. Thank you for an amazing experience.

The three support works Dave, Mark and Hamish were exceptional. They were supportive, knowledgeable and facilitated a memorable tour. I cannot speak highly enough of them all. Thankyou.

Robert Giles, Sept 2017

All accommodation was very good, with some excellent places. Nice variety of accommodation.

It was great passing through pretty small villages but also seeing sights such as Edinburgh, Balmoral, Severn Bridge etc. Good mix of important sights and lesser known but equally enjoyable sights!!

The brew van was always welcome and snacks provide were plentiful and appropriate. Lunch stops were variable but on the whole pretty good, with some excellent.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour.


Shiela Mair, Sept 2017

The route was really good. I’ve never cycled that far and on so many consecutive days before – so I found it quite hard some days and very challenging. Just what I wanted and needed.

Good mix of abilities. Good total number. I don’t think anybody who wanted to had a problem finding somebody to cycle with at their own level.

I couldn’t fault the organisation. I’ve never done anything like this before so not sure what to expect, but more than met my expectations.

All three of our guides were excellent. Helpful, supportive and helped us keep our sense of humour in some pretty dreadful weather. Three great guys!

Brilliant. Outside of family stuff – weddings, births etc probably the one of the best things I’ve ever experienced and done.


Kevin Grainger, Sept 2017

We would strongly recommend your tours and have already done so.

Roger and Maureen Pool, Sept 2017

This was the first organised cycle tour I have done after many years of self-supported touring. Loved it! You have it sorted, well done.


Glyn Copperwheat, Sept 2017

[The organisation] was faultless. Never any doubt as to what was happening and where we needed to be. Bag transfers were seamless, team meals perfectly organised, briefings and restaurant recommendations very useful. Bike maintenance when required was efficient and dealt with with a smile.


David Giles (Henry), Sept 2017

Lunch times were excellent and so were the mid -morning / mid-afternoon stops. Pete did a fantastic job with his flower displays! Well looked after and Pete also had the cups filled as we got off the bike! Fabulous service from Pete, Hamish and Bill with our bags – what a team!


Alison Mallorie-Lewis, June 2017

Brew stops mid morning and afternoon provided were very welcome refreshment. Thanks to Peter and Hamish for excellent variety. Lunch stops were also very good.

The group seemed to gel very well providing great camaraderie.


Andrew Baxter June 2017

Superb route – avoiding busy roads as far as possible. Good phasing in of mileage for earliest days as you get used to back to back days.

Ran like clockwork, very positive and friendly (even managed to crack a smile on Peter’s face on occasions!) Nothing was too much trouble: mechanical issues dealt with by Hamish superbly who went way beyond what I expected in his own time- he’s a major asset!

A great experience, not something that I would have completed unsupported. I will recommend to others and will probably be back for more.


David Butchers, June 2017

Brew stops were fantastic – a great selection of healthy and not so healthy options to keep us going. Lunch stops were on the whole excellent too although a couple left us a little hungry till the afternoon brew stop.


Lynne Hargran, June 2017



Peter Webster. June 2017

Well supported by an outstanding team: Bill, Peter and Hamish. Beautiful country.


Jim & Sara Shull, June 2017

Fantastic experience, best bike ride ever!


Rod Matheson, Sept 2017

I still don’t know how you managed to create such an interesting and varied route- Brilliant!



Kev Jones Aug 2017

Absolutely perfect



Hilary Collins Aug 2017

The planning organisation and execution of the challenge by PT  and tour leaders set the perfect tone, took care of all the detail and allowed the group to get on with the challenge. First class.

Peak tours LEJOG was exactly as it said on the label. Clearly a homely non corporate organisation that succeeds primarily by getting a lot of little things right. Ultimately the success depends on the people – who were excellent -  I will definitely recommend PT and hope to join the 14 day French trip next year.


Ian May August 2017

Enjoyed cycle paths and city centres. Route reflects careful honing over the years. I was impressed!


Tom Rossiter June 2017

I loved the whole experience and think it was well organised and delivered from start to finish. I enjoyed the variation from wild barren landscapes to city centres. It showed the diversity of the country and that’s what I wanted to experience.


Jenny Greene July 2017

I loved this trip – it surpassed my expectations and I would not hesitate to return on another tour or recommend to a friend


Lynne Whittaker July 2017

This is the first organised, led tour I have ever been on. It has been one of the best vacations ever. I think we were lucky to have such a good group. The logistics to do this on our own would be very difficult and we do difficult rides,trips, hiking and back packing on our own.

The route was absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing. A nice mix of challenging roads, terrain, hills, scenery, quiet roads, etc. A+ for this category


Anonymous July 2017

Ingenious, carefully thought out and memorable route


Peter Wilson July 2017

The tour seems to have been refined/fine tuned over time to a point where it is hard to see how it could be better.


Robert Edwards July 2017

Fantastic. Best holiday yet. So well organised!


Carole Patterson July 2017

It was such a treat to be able to ride on the country roads without traffic, which is becoming increasingly difficult to find in various countries. Fantastic scenery all the way.


Minna Hayman July/Aug 2017

I did LEJOG with a different company in 2014,this route was better.


Neil Smith July/Aug 2017

Overall I thought the tour was Fabulous. Much, much better than anticipated.


Mike Blades July/Aug 2017

Very happy. Thank you very much for organising it all and for making this experience so memorable.


Dave Godfrey July/Aug 2017

The scenery and views were stunning. We loved the quiet roads, only using busier roads where necessary. The route was beautiful and gave us an amazing overview of this stunning island we live on.

The tour organisation was great in every way. Everything was managed well, everything we needed was provided for, we never felt rushed- the timings of the start of the day, brew stops and lunches, all excellent. Bags always in rooms at the end of the day was a heart warming sight.


Dick and Isabel Quimby July/August 2017

Best Holiday ever! Will definitely be using Peak Tours again.


Helen Pitchford July/August 2017

Still recovering however my recent 14 day LEJOG was the best  cycling experience of my life to date. Chapeau to you and your team!

Phil Loftus July/August 2017

I will be returning a feedback form in due course, but just wanted to drop a separate line to say thanks, I have just had the best two weeks of my life. Your tour guides did a great job, Dan, Sam and Pete were great but Jim and especially Dave deserve extra praise - Dave in particular for helping out sensitively with some of the accommodation arrangements.

Thanks again - the level of organisation was just right. There was another group at Land's End who were being ordered around like schoolchildren - again, always knew we'd gone with the right bunch.



Daniel Darkens July/August 2017

I just want to tell you the ride was great. The leaders were always helpful and willing to assist with anything. The group was exceptional and all were very friendly. The brew stops were well stocked and they offered a wide variety of foods.

I found the accommodations were good also. I enjoyed the hostels and the B and Bs.

I would highly recommend Peak Tours to others.

Mark Tobin, July 2017

Well back in reality today after LeJog. Can I just say Rob, Johnny and Matt did a great job looking after us. The whole experience was bloomin' marvellous. I'll be thumbing the options for the next one!


Peter Thompson, July 2017

A great trip and a fantastic set of people to cycle with. I cannot praise Peak Tours highly enough.

Will be looking at your French tour for next year.


Graham Langstone, July 2017

By nature and by profession (I'm an auditor) I'm a very critical person but I have nothing but praise for the organisation of this trip and for the three guides. In short, the epitome of an excellent "product"


Richard Barr, July 2017

Iconic end to end routes like LEJOG are a big challenge for everyone.  If anyone can help you succeed, it is Peak Tours.  They have the knowledge, devote the right resources and have the ethos to help you achieve your dream.

LEJOG – What an experience! What a way to see the UK!  Thank you Peak Tours for making it possible for me to achieve such a major challenge.


Graeme Nicol, June 2017

Our tour was served by outstanding, mature and competent guides.

I am sure this is no accident - but as PT customers are, in the main, professionals or retired professionals and they expect a high level of customer service. The guides Bill, Peter and Hamish did not disappoint.

Nothing major went wrong and every detail was covered. On the one occasion, there was a confusion over accommodation, it’s what was done to remedy this that set PT apart – a golden rule of customer service. Very Impressed.

Really pleased and vindicated my choice of provider. Would choose again.


John Murrell, June 2017

What a fantastic experience! The route was sublime, the organisation was top notch and the tour guides (Dave, Jim and Matt) couldn't have done any more to ensure that everything went perfectly. In fact, after a short while you tend to think of them as good friends, as well as being top-notch tour guides.

I have thought long and hard about how the tour could be improved, but could not come up with a single thing that I would change.

Let me know when your 'Around the World in 80 days' tour is up and running. :0)

Graham Watson, May 2017

The route was excellent. Staying off main roads was the main factor in choosing this tour. Cannot really see how it can be improved. You have thought of everything. Knowing all the bike shops on the route was a real help. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the guides.

Ray Thorn, September, 2016

Would recommend to friends, without a shadow of doubt. Brilliant experience.

Tim, September 2016

The tour organisation was excellent. It was really well organised but not over-organised, which is not an easy thing to pull off. Well done. Perhaps the most telling comment was that we saw lots of other LEJOG-ers on the road and always felt sorry for them that they weren’t with our group.

Dave Sorensen, September 2016

The route was excellent – very clever, very good, was grateful to stay away from main roads. I had both Garmin hire and the printed notes – they were excellent too and it worked well to have both.

A Nash, September 2016

Overall, the tour was excellent. Hope to be back for the Channel to Med tour.

Neil Duff, September 2016

From my first browse of the website and initial conversation with Steve, I felt I would be in good hands. The experience has merely reinforced that feeling. It’s the ‘tiny noticeable’ things that Peak Tours get right. From the fun and enthusiasm of the morning briefings to the way a hot cup of tea is invitingly offered at the brew stop, to the cheers and encouragement as you scrabble to the top of Glenshee. All this demonstrates that Peak Tours understands how to create an experience you will want to repeat and share with others.

John Webster, September 2016

I will never forget the experience – I will recommend Peak Tours and hopefully we will be riding with you again.

Siobhan Eccleston, August 2016

The accommodation was excellent but a special mention for Brenda and Chris at the Buchan Guesthouse in Moffat – the perfect hosts and couldn’t do enough to assist. The group size was just right – everyone found their own pace and rode with riders of similar ability, so you were never too bunched up. Overall, the tour was excellent, very well organised and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted a challenge and see the UK.

Adrian O’Sullivan, August 2016

All the food was excellent and very welcome at the brew stops or lunch breaks. I would rate the tour as ‘Excellent’ and would recommend Peak Tours to anyone thinking of doing LEJOG or any other tours they organise.

John and Shaun Barker, August 2016

Tour organisation – Excellent, first class

Graham, August 2016

Excellent accommodation at every stop. I went for the basic option, sharing with someone else and was pleasantly surprised at how well we were catered for. The tour was really well thought out – the stops were all in good places and broke each day up into manageable chunks. Everyone knew what they were doing and the whole thing worked really well. I had the time of my life and recommend it to anyone I talk to – you guys are the best!

Amie Dixon, August 2016

Having contemplated a self-supported LEJOG, the tour organisation was so good and well appreciated that we are unlikely to consider self-supporting again. You exceeded our expectations. Channel to the Med next year!

Jayne Woods, July 2016

The best holiday company I have ever experienced.

Martin Levoir, July 2016

It was an amazing experience. Because of Peak Tours’ fantastic organisation and set up, and with three friendly and supportive guides, I was able, as a 48 year-old with little cycling experience, to achieve something I would never have imagined possible a year ago, and I had so much fun in the process!

Catherine Bailey, July 2016

An amazing experience – everything was taken care of so you could focus on cycling each day. My head is now full of wonderful memories.

Keith Laker, July 2016

The tour was so well organised in a low key, informal manner, so that it became a superb holiday. I really appreciated having my bag waiting for me in my room every night!

Lesley Postlethwaite, July 2016

Breakfast and lunches were great. Brew van was always well stocked and had the right level of food to keep us going throughout the day. Fantastic tour. I would definitely recommend it to others and I hope to join another tour in the future.

Colin Huckstap, July 2016

The team were excellent. I think they had the right balance of leading/informing, but feeling part of the trip in a social sense in the evenings. They seemed to be genuinely enjoying it and were not just ‘employees’. Well done Dave, in particular, for leading. Overall, I would rate the tour as excellent – mechanical back up was essential. I had slipped gears and a broken gear cable, both of which were sorted for me – that was worth a lot to me. I found your historical notes excellent and would read these over again – they helped to reinforce the sense of place and journey.

Paul Cottrell, June 2016

How is it that I already feel like I've never been away! Obviously need to look at booking another cycling 'holiday'. Luckily I don't need to spend hours searching through the internet as no company could delivery more customer satisfaction than Peak Tours - so huge thank you to all concerned.

Karen Long, June 2016

The route notes were excellent. As someone with nil navigation skills, even I managed to find my way!

Hena, June 2016

The group size was spot on. A big enough group to be able to ride with different people each day, but small enough to get to know everyone. We would definitely make Peak Tours our first choice for future cycling holidays and will recommend you to all our cycling friends.

Cath and Julian Walls, June 2016

A great route overall – great variety, good cycle ways, great scenery and plenty of challenging climbs. The organisation was excellent – a cracking job, well done! A+++!

Bob Manojlovic, June 2016

I thought the rides were thrilling. I really enjoyed our route in the Cairngorms and the challenge of the major hills there – Glenshee and The Lecht. Of course, we were very lucky with the weather in Scotland. I thought the Sustrans routes were very good, even through Edinburgh.

Sue O’Mahoney, June 2016

I had the time of my life. I want to do the French and Ireland tours now!

Alan Irwin, June 2016

The route was wonderful. We do not want A roads. The full enjoyment of seeing this wonderful country especially in the sun, has to be done on as many back roads as possible. I’ve been waiting and planning this for 15 years – wonderful

Martin Jones, May/June 2016

I did the tour as a challenge to myself and hoped I had not bitten off more than I could chew and would be able to enjoy it. It exceeded all my expectations.

Ian lewis, May/June 2016

Keep going, keep doing just what you do, you can’t go wrong.

Steve Dalman, May/June 2016

Many thanks for organising a brilliant holiday, perhaps the best holiday I’ve ever enjoyed. The organisation just hit the spot, the scenery and the route were amazing and the whole trip was the realisation of a long held ambition and the overcoming of some notable challenges; riding up Glenshee and the Lecht without stopping, even if the tongue was generally in the vertical position, was a highlight that will live with me as I gently subside into the sunset! THANK YOU!

Bob Forster, May/June 2016

The tour was beyond first class. I cannot fault it. The calm organisation and re-organisations (as events changed) was exemplary. The inclusion of a rider with Asperger's Syndrome was a great success for all.

Peter Spargo, May/June 2016

The route was a real joy with so many lanes and paths and so few busy roads. Thoroughly researched – fantastic.

Jason Saunders, May 2016

Absolutely brilliant. So pleased I came with you. Have recommended you to a couple of friends already.

Val Bridges, May 2016

The tour exceeded all my expectations and I had the adventure of a lifetime, which I will never forget. We had a wonderful group who all got well, helped each other out and provided lots of laughs! I hope to be back for more!

Roy Glew, May 2016

Thank you for making this a trip of a lifetime!! Would not hesitate to recommend Peak Tours.

David Mitchell, May 2016

The route was generally brilliant – the 14 day LEJOG has the right balance of challenge and efficiency with fantastic scenery. I will recommend Peak Tours to my friends. In addition, they will be the first company I will consider on my next venture.

Vince Paine, May 2016

We had great group dynamics made even more special by the staff, what gems they are! Organisationally, I could not have asked for more. The staff were always on top of situations and handled things with a no fuss approach, friendly and accommodating.

David Cautterbuck Bespoke LEJOG 2015

The general avoidance of major roads was appreciated, the small lanes and cycle paths through the forests, along lakes and rivers and hedgerows in the south was fantastic. And on such routes the other vehicles seemed most considerate.

Dick Goldham Bespoke LEJOG 2015

It was a journey of a lifetime. Thank you Graeme and Lizzy who made it a fantastic adventure.

Peter Molloy Bespoke LEJOG 2015

What can I say other than a huge thank you for providing me with a unique, unforgettable experience shared with 23 others and guided by 3 exceptional men – Johnny, Dave and Tom. They went out of their way to ensure we had first class advice and support, I really cant put into words how grateful we all were for this and it was a repeated topic of conversation by all. What advice would I give someone contemplating the epic LEJOG?

1) Do it! And do it with Peak Tours

2) Make sure you get plenty of practice as early as possible. I spent the winter months in the gym on a watt bike. Practice as much as possible on hills, Cornwall is a killer!

3) 7 out of our group of 24 were aged 60 and over. If we could do it, then so could you!

4) Don’t worry about applying as a singleton who knows nobody else. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you get to know everyone else. More than half our group came on their own

5) As good as it is don’t have a cooked breakfast every day, it plays havoc with the digestion!

Anonymous LEJOG 2015

I enjoyed that each place we stayed was so very different. In fact Mike said he will hate going back to the States where most of the accommodation is run by large companies so all very similar. I did smile when we arrived at one B&B to find the landlady was bathing a dog in the sink! LEJOG will go into my Top 5 best life experiences and I will recommend Peak Tours to anyone and everyone

Martin Aldridge LEJOG 2015

Really appreciate the thought & effort gone into keeping us off the main and busy roads, many parts of the route were sublime. The tour was well organised, we were worried that would mean corners cut – nothing could be further from the truth!

Vanessa Bridge LEJOG 2015

Absolutely excellent. Thank you so much for all the hard work that goes into planning the route. I loved it so much and it showed what a wonderful country we live in. The tour organisation could not have been better. I felt spoiled having my bag in my room each day without having to carry it. The brew stops were a life saver. I cant say thank you enough to Graham, Andy and Dave were just brilliant from the very first moment of communication to the very last. Hugely caring, Hugely considerate, hugely understating, hugely entertaining, hugely safety conscious and made me feel great about my cycling ability even though I was so slow compared to the rest of the group. They could not have done more and they did it with their hearts and not just as a job. I am so grateful to them and to you Steve as every communication with all of you has been so valuable and truly appreciated by me. To sustain such professionalism and humour for all those days, every day and through every weather is commendable. What a wonderful team you all are and it was a privilege for me to have your unrelenting understanding, care, consideration, humour and support as I could not have done this experience without the sheer support that you all provided. I am really grateful to you all. Please could you pass this onto your team, I am happy for this to be used in the testimonial section of your website as well, you all deserve nothing but the very best feedback for your dedication and commitment to making this an excellent experience for me.

Anonymous LEJOG 2015

The accommodation was very good most of the time, and on one or two occasions it was excellent. Namely, where we stayed on the last night, and in Frodsham. Even the YHA hostels were better than I remember, except maybe one of the showers. The route was very well chosen. Keeping the cycling away from the traffic as much as possible.

Denise Gigg LEJOG August/September 2015

What an experience! I would recommend this trip and company to anyone who’s considering doing LEJOG. Johnny, Jim and Sam (the guides) totally made it awesome! I look forward to booking my next trip! Cheers!

Tara Robertson LEJOG August/September 2015

The route did an excellent job of avoiding main roads and major towns/cities. It also took the path of least resistance through the mountains, perfect! The organisation was also really excellent, I would definitely use you again and recommend you. Ive been on a number of organised tours and this was one of the best! Great job, thanks.

Fiona Barker LEJOG September 2015

Without exception I had very good or excellent accommodation ranging from pleasingly quirky to luxurious. Food was plentiful and most places were happy to provide some washing/drying services. Wonderful route with beautiful scenery. It was great to spend so much time cycling on relatively quiet roads and experience the changes in the British countryside as we moved North. I also enjoyed cycling through some of the cities – Bristol and Edinburgh in particular were highlights. The route through the Cairngorms was a great experience – the ride up Glenshee and the Lecht were particularly memorable and fun. All the guides were extremely helpful – they made an effort to ensure that we were all ok. They were fun to be with and knowledgeable about the route. I remember feeling really impressed when I arrived at the first brew stop and saw the wonderful selection of food and drink laid out for us. This continued through the tour. I think you have a winning formula, keep up the good work. I would recommend Peak Tours to anyone who wants to ride LEJOG and I hope I will have the chance to use you again for another tour in the future.

Rob Turcan LEJOG August/September 2015

The 2 days through the Cairngorms were absolutely stunning, I have seen so much of our beautiful country in those 14 days – an experience never to be forgotten. The tour organisation was absolutely brilliant, I really think there is room for improvement here. The guides were amazing, so encouraging, helpful and there when you needed them. A fab team, we couldn’t have done it without them THANK YOU SO MUCH! Overall an awesome experience. The sights, landscapes, group and leaders made it a journey i will never forget. So much better than I anticipated. Fantastic. I even have a tattoo to mark the event!

Lorraine Mellors LEJOG

Absolutely fantastic – cannot praise your guys highly enough.

Peter Hopkins LEJOG August 2015

Absolutely superb, could not be faulted. Wonderful to explore the little lanes and use the national routes and have been constant with the occasional busy road to remind us how lucky we were to be out of traffic so much. The group was great, you obviously attract a great mix of interesting people with similar values. The organisation was brilliant, the guides never forgot what it was like to be a ‘punter’ always anticipating our needs and gave us just what we needed and wanted (eg. Extra brew stop on a cool wet afternoon) without being asked. Brew van is fantastic, luggage in rooms a lovely touch and beautiful detail.

David Robson & Sharon McCullagh LEJOG August 2015

Overall the tour was fantastic! Keep doing what you are doing – so well!

Pauline and Mick Bedwell LEJOG August 2015

Fantastic route that took my breath away. Even the mundane parts of the country were well planned. Changing the route in Scotland seemed to be a great move, although I wasn’t so sure halfway up Glenshee and the Lecht. Seriously though, just brilliant. The tour organisation was bloody brilliant and overall it was one of the best experiences of my life!

Dave Mann LEJOG August 2015

Great choice of route, amazing hidden country lanes, hidden gems of villages – excellent.

Alex and Graeme LEJOG August 2015

The route was like a voyage of discovery, taking in the country lanes and using cycle routes to avoid main roads. I thought it was excellent, thank you Steve. This tour exceeded my expectations. It took me deep into the areas of the country I have never visited before. The whole group gelled together and the support team couldn’t have been more supportive and encouraging.

Peter Adams LEJOG August 2015

Steve, you did a fabulous job with the organisation of this trip. I never thought a tour could run this efficiently. Clearly all the details have been thought out, as well as back up plans when something goes awry. I learned early on how you provide individual responses and support. This is impressive. Everything you said you would do, you did. Again, it made for a seamless adventure. We saw Skedaddlers a few times, and their tour looked a lot less fun, they all seemed to lack the camaraderie we all had, which I think reflects on your planning and staff.

Chris Willard LEJOG July 2015

We were delighted with all aspects of the tour and enjoyed it immensely! The accommodation was to a high standard and the food was delicious.

Elizabeth Goode LEJOG July 2015

Over the years I’ve tried running marathons and taking part in triathlons but nothing has ever been as thrilling, exhilarating and memorable as LEJOG.

Rob Malony LEJOG July 2015

The accommodation was incredible! All of our B&B hosts were very friendly and helpful. I cannot express how wonderful it was to arrive and find our luggage in our room, fresh towels, tea, coffee and snacks. The breakfasts were excellent too! We were really lucky with this group to have a range of ages, gender and abilities on our trip. It made for lots of fun. I think that the size of the group was terrific, especially when we all rode our last 8 miles to JOG’s. That we did the final ride together was a really nice touch, thanks for thinking of it. Also having Rob lead us to keep the pace nice and steady, like a celebratory parade marshall! The booking arrangements in the B&B’s went a long way in terms of encouraging us to interact with more people rather than form cliques. I really enjoyed and appreciated that touch. The staff were really generous with their time ‘after hours’ if there is such a thing  - I had wonderful, inspiring conversations with Sam, Niv, Jim and Rob thanks to them for hanging out with us over dinner. It is clear to me that Peak Tours really is passionate about what you do and that you treat your staff and clients so well. This was emphasized when I cycled past skedaddle last days morning brew stop that was parked next to a cemetery and in a very smelly mature patch. Peaks brew van was set up at the top of a hill where we enjoyed another wonderful  view, fresh air and refreshment. I got so much more out of this trip than anticipated. I wanted a lifestyle change (the training leading up to the trip achieved that), but the trip itself, the ability to do a multi-day effort and maintaining a positive outlook when my performance was not at its peak all the time was a wonderful opportunity that I would not have had time to focus on if I were paying attention to the behind the scenes details. The views, the places we stayed, the route that took us through urban and rural spaces, the misty moors over Dartmoor, were incredible.

Laurel Smith LEJOG July 2015

A tremendous route and obvious that a great deal of thought has gone into it. The tour organisation was first class. For us OAP cyclists, the brew stops morning and afternoon were a huge help. Four 20 mile rides were easier than one 80 mile marathon! Overall , the tour was fantastic. I was able to achieve my goal and raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. I now feel like a real cyclist, though I know it is not true.

Mike Allen LEJOG July 2015

Very easy as a customer – all expectations were surpassed! I am not a long standing cyclist, very much an amateur, with a hybrid bike. The tour gave me exactly the support and challenge I required and relished to achieve an important aim. It was an amazing experience and now that I reflect upon it I almost feel that for two weeks I was in another world.

Nick Martin LEJOG June/July 2015

The fare served up by the brew van was outstanding and so were almost all of the other lunches and food along the way.

Mike Jackson LEJOG June/July 2015

Fantastic experience. I found the cycling pretty challenging but very enjoyable. The route was great and all aspects of the tour from planning to delivery were excellent. A really nice bunch of people on the tour, good socialising. I decided to make a few adjustments during the tour and the tour guides were so supportive – helped me finish the tour in a way that was manageable for me, still got to see Scotland which was amazing. I really like how the accommodation is spread over smaller B&B’s, really feel like we were supporting the local people rather than the big chains all the time and I feel this is positive and important.

Ella LEJOG June/July 2015

The tour has literally changed our outlook on life! Please don’t change a thing!

Alan and Debra Hargreaves LEJOG June/July 2015

Couldn’t fault anything – the tour was fantastic, the lads were great, the route was perfect. Keep up the good work, I will definitely be using your company again in the future.

David Thomas LEJOG) June 2015

You have a great formula - good staff and good organisation, I will definitely book with you again.

Sean Ahern LEJOG June 2015

Perfect service, could not have asked for any more.

Pat Daffarn LEJOG June 2015

Lunches at the brew van far exceeded expectation and anything experienced on other cycling holidays. Peak Tours seem to have thought about everything, I cannot think of any way to improve.

Stephen Adler LEJOG June 2015

I liked the variety of small B&Bs and bigger hotels, stayed at some really lovely places. Really liked the fresh fruit and the variety of food, like having local delicacies.

Judy LEJOG June 2015

It was amazing. I recommend your company to anyone who asks me about my journey. Many thanks indeed for enabling me to achieve the journey.

Jane Askey LEJOG June 2015

The route was fantastic. So carefully planned, so varied and safe. Thank you!

Kathy Roberts and Adam Malin LEJOG June 2015

The food was better than excellent. I’d heard about the brew van, on the training weekend and this was a great feature of the support. I couldn’t believe how much I was eating every day and this included hovering up loads at each van stop as the selection was amazing and just too tempting. There was a good range of food available at each lunch stop and the options for dinner gave plenty of choice.

Chris Williamson LEJOG June 2015

Excellent, amazing two weeks. Would highly recommend.

Adam Merriman LEJOG May 2015

I think that the entire tour, its leadership and execution was brilliant.

Steve Ironside LEJOG May 2015

The organisation of the accommodation, bags and brew van were excellent. It was particularly impressive to see a suggested item for the brew stop appear the next day (one of our group suggested scones). Having experienced this supported tour I would not consider an unsupported tour.

Steve Stone LEJOG May 2015

Keep it going as it is, and the guides are excellent!

Michael Burton LEJOG May 2015

I thought the route was excellent, keeping us off the main roads as much as possible. I was amazed at the lack of punctures on the route too which was good. The route notes as always were excellent. I used mine every day. The food provided was spot on and provided excellent value for money. The organisation was excellent and catered for everyone and all kinds of situations.

Mick Buxton LEJOG May 2015

I was very unsure as to whether I could do it but your organisation and team made it a real pleasure.

Adrian Long LEJOG May 2015

Showed the country off to its best, very scenic and little traffic. The new route through Scotland was certainly good.

Peter Bowden LEJOG May 2015

Everything ran so effortlessly, again a complete tribute to the team on tour and obviously all the hard work at base camp.

Amelia Percy LEJOG May 2015

I would certainly recommend Peak Tours to people who want to complete this challenge. All three guides were excellent and added to the ride in their different ways.

Pam Gretton Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

Graham, Niv and Andy made the tour. They were very supportive and great company. Overall, the tour was excellent.

San Chima Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

The tour guides were fantastic, gave support where required and quickly recognised that we were competent cyclists/navigators/mechanics and left us to it! They seemed to genuinely care that we were all happy and went out of their way to solve any problems.

Can't fault the organisation - very slick operation.

Stephen Jackson Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

The variety of B&Bs was very good – each was unique. Cannot say enough how helpful Graham, Niv and Bill were throughout the trip.

Dave Varga (Canada) Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

Absolutely fantastic.I've already recommended you to a number of friends and as soon as I have the time, I plan to do another trip with you!

Gilly Cooper Lands End to John O'Groats

The organisation was absolutely bloody fantastic. Its obvious that a lot of effort has been put in to planning routes and sorting stops and accommodation.Really impressed - no wonder you get repeat business. Am seriously considering signing up for another tour when my bum recovers!

Victoria Barber Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

Fantastic experience. Graham, Johnny and Bill were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Cannot speak highly enough of their efforts to make the tour enjoyable. Very impressed with the food- buying in local specialities as we travelled North was a nice touch.

Have recommended Peak Tours to everyone I speak to about the trip.

Ian Mason Lands End to John O'Groats

Congratulations all round! Trip of a lifetime! Thank you!

Nickie Willcocks Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

The organisation was perfect but without being overpowering in any way. I was more mentally relaxed for the whole fortnight than I have been for years! The tour guides (Graham, Andy and Niv) were tremendous. Their care, attention, skills and approach made the whole tour work so smoothly and perfectly but also so relaxed and flexible.

Judith Hodges Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

This is so good! I would recommend Peak Tours without any reservations! We are looking on the website to see what we can do next!

The group size sounded too big but it was great. Always someone you could ride with but you could be on your own if you wanted.

Pete Woolley Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

Peak Tours is brilliant. This was my first 'supported' tour. Hopefully, I will do another and if I do, it will be with Peak Tours.

The brew van was brilliant - if we suggested something different to eat/drink, it was on the van the next day. Good mix of group meals and free evenings gave us the right amount of space whilst still feeling part of a group.

The tour ran like clockwork - incredibly well organised throughout by Graham, Niv and Andy.

Richard Woolley Lands End to John O'Groats September 2014

From start to finish, I thought the tour was excellently organised. it was an unforgettable experience. Thank you.

Daryl Goodall Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2014

I will recommend Peak Tours to everyone. I will be booking another tour with you in the future.

Dave Watts Lands End to John O'Groats August 2014

Steve - it is now two weeks since we finished the ride of a lifetime. I must share how wonderful an experience the ride was. It began as a distance challenge, but by about day 2 or 3, as the group gels and we become more comfortable with the routine and your team, the ride is about people, life's experiences, remarkable countryside and the collective mission to get through to the next brew stop! I have told all on my return, that the distance is eminently achievable - it is the rest of the experience one is unprepared for. As for the guides - had it not been for the incredible talent of Graham, Andy and Dave, we all would have enjoyed the trip considerably less than we did.

Paul Hanegraaf Lands End to John O'Groats August 2014

Wow! Where do I start? Did the tour meet my expectations? In a word - No - it far exceeded them! it really is difficult to put into words how much I enjoyed not just the journey of LEJOG but the whole experience overall.

Mark Watson Lands End to John O'Groats August 2014

The tour organisation was as smooth as a cashmere codpiece!

John Hatfield Lands End to John O'Groats August 2014

Wonderful accommodation with lovely people - very helpful and welcoming

The food provided was perfect. Lunches were fabulous, brew stops wonderful - Andy, Graham and Dave could not do enough for us.I can't praise them highly enough. Great mechanical knowledge, very caring, inspired confidence, great company.

I had the time of my life.

Helen Hulme Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2014

The group size was perfect as we all found small groups of people at similar speed so we stayed together, then in the evenings we mixed with the other riders. Everyone got on really well.

Will be coming back for more and will recommend you to all my cycling friends too. I can't thank you enough for exceeding all our expectations and helping us live a dream that we have had for so long.

Josie and Richard Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2014

To make a tour accessible to relatively inexperienced cyclists and yet still challenging to club riders is no easy thing. Graham, Dave and Andy went above and beyond to ensure that everybody's needs were catered for. All aspects of the tout were very well organised and it is really difficult to see how you could improve on the 'Peak Tours Experience'. Thank you!

David Tilley Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2014

The trip was incredible, brilliant, really really enjoyed it. The group was quite special and we made many new friends. Graham, |Dave and Andy were outstanding, with nothing too much trouble and looked after us extremely well. Could not have better. Big thanks.

Gill Parry Lands End to John O'Groats

First time using peak tours and was really pleased how well organised it was. Would highly recommend and would do another tour.

Heather Reid Lands End to John O'Groats July 2014

Steve - it was just brilliant from first contact to battling to get my bike out of the box yesterday! I have lived the dream. Peak Tours are a company I would highly recommend and i think I will be coming back for more.

Helen Evans Lands End to John O'Groats June/July2014

Niv, Johnny and James worked so hard to make the trip run smoothly and they were great guides and companions! I had such a good time. Brilliant!

Fran McLean Lands End to John O'Groats June 2014

Guides were beyond excellent. Brew van was totally awesome – that red van made the Tour for me! Overall, excellent plus.

Ian Hope Lands End to John O'Groats June 2014

Steve, you’ve got it just right, mate – don’t change a thing. We wish it could have lasted forever (except for the sore backsides and tired legs)!

Peter & Karen Teague (Australia) Lands End to John O'Groats June 2014

The accommodations were perfect and interestingly varied and gave me a well - rounded sense of what Britain is all about. Everything worked like clockwork. Thanks for doing such a great job. I will definitely choose Peak Tours on my next cycling adventure.

Lauren Nadler (USA) Lands End to John O'Groats June 2014

If you are crazy enough to attempt to ride LEJOG then I challenge anyone to find a better company than Peak Tours. Their support and organisation was absolutely excellent. We’ve now ridden two of their bike tours and would definitely ride with them again.

Jill Armstrong Lands End to John O'Groats June 2014

This has been the hardest thing I have ever done but also the most rewarding and the biggest accomplishment ever! Peak Tours made that possible and I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of doing a cycling tour!

Kay Murfin Lands End to John O'Groats May/June 2014

I always felt that I was in safe hands. The cycling was fantastic and the guides (Graham and Jim) added to the experience with their stories, jokes, knowledge and encouragement every step of the way. Will definitely book up for another Peak Tour!

Joanna Chapman Lands End to John O'Groats May/June 2014

Thanks to everyone involved in making this an amazing and unforgettable experience. Highly recommended.

Clyde Percy Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

LEJOG is a big deal for anyone who undertakes such a challenge. I always felt that Peak Tours respected that in the way they facilitated our dreams coming true.

Tony Barton Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

The experience of a lifetime. Thanks for putting on such a great tour. Exceeded all of my expectations.

Matt Taylor Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

When Andrew suggested we do this on a tandem, I wasn’t sure it was possible. Not only did we manage it but we also enjoyed every minute – and would have happily gone back down again with Graham, Bill, Niv and the rest of the group)!

Jill Buzzard Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

Route notes were spot on – clearly a lot of work goes on into maintaining and checking them. Organisation couldn’t have been better. Everything sorted, problems resolved quickly and efficiently. Felt fully supported at all times.

Phil Beed Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

Excellent mix of fast roads, country lanes and traffic free routes using NCN where practicable. Love to do it again, although I know I won’t!

Colin Carritt Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

The last two weeks was everything I had hoped it would be, and possibly a little bit more. Tough, challenging, emotional, but immensely rewarding and a whole lot of fun!

Jane Cullen Lands End to John O'Groats May 2014

Beyond Excellent!

Rodney Binley Lands End to John O'Groats July 2013

Tony Warne made the trip for me, so helpful and informative and patient and looked after the bike really well. He was kept busy! Would definitely ask for Tony again, in a year or so!

Paul Rebours Lands End to John O'Groats July 2013

The route was very enjoyable and I had to stop sometimes to take in the view and the silence. I sometimes found I was speechless which is hard to do!! I have seen parts of the country I have never seen before and I will be making sure I visit these places again.

Fantastic tour which I would love to do again. I am made up I have achieved a massive goal in my life and I can say I did LEJOG.

Craig Boote Lands End to John O'Groats September 2013

I loved all three tour guides Graham, Jonny and James! They all worked hard with their duties of cycling with the group, manning the brew van and fetching and delivering the luggage. Collectively they gave great advice on bike problems, eating , drinking, restaurant choices in town and body niggles!

Teresa Bailey Lands End to John O'Groats September 2013

Great experience! Good value for money

Bob White Lands End to John O'Groats September 2013

The pub buffets were excellent and the organised evening meals and recommended places to eat were all great too.

Graham, Andy and Johnny were fantastic company and their encouragement and support throughout the two weeks really made a difference. The way they responded to everyone on the trip helped us all to get along. No one was ever left out, as can easily happen with a big group of people. I was amazed by Graham’s technical know –how and really appreciated how he tackled any bike problems with good cheer. His morning briefings were excellent and he was always so positive (even in the rain), making it easier to get going each day. Johnny and Andy provided much humour and were always a welcome and cheerful sight at the brew stops.

I really enjoyed the whole trip, from a cycling point of view, but also as a holiday. I’d thought about trying to do an unsupported tour but was so glad that I did it this way instead. Everything about the organisation and the way the trip was run really made it a superb two weeks. In the future I’m sure I’ll be looking at some of the other trips you run

Michael Walker Lands End to John O'Groats August 2013

The trip has been amazing. Arriving at JOG as one group speaks volumes about the friendship and support we all gave and received along the journey. I am indebted to everyone and thank each of you for making this experience a life long memory I will treasure.

Sallyann Gladman Lands End to John O'Groats August 2013

Absolutely brilliant, best “holiday” yet! A great mix of people from all age groups and all walks of life. The guides friendly, helpful and experience certainly added value to this trip.

Dean Snowden Lands End to John O'Groats August 2013

The route notes were really detailed, we didn’t get lost once!

What can I say! Nigel, Graham and Tony were simply the best. I was so impressed with how quickly they appeared when we had a problem. They were always happy, friendly, encouraging and really couldn’t have done more for us. Brilliant!

Mel Johnson Lands End to John O'Groats August 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the youth hostels and I liked the atmosphere.

The tour leaders were very enthusiastic, very genuine concern for us all, our safety and enjoyment of the trip. Professional at all times but still made the tour great fun. Nothing was ever a problem and they went out of their way on a daily basis. The guys worked well as a team and the banter between them was great.

Anne Hall Lands End to John O'Groats August 2013

Brilliant organisation, tour notes and support. Very friendly and supportive. The ride was great because of the group, the age spread, mix of gender and ability. The daily mileage was just about right.

Jonathan Mellish Lands End to John O'Groats August 2013

Graham, Nigel and Tony were absolutely amazing, I was so grateful for their support and encouragement throughout.

Esther Hansen Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2013

The training weekend was very useful, it was a wake up call to put more hills into training. I certainly went from distance to hills during the last few weeks.

Martin Gloster Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2013

A fabulous experience, Peak Tours is very well organised, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering LEJOG or any other cycle tour

Jo Bridle Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2013

The tour leader (Nigel) was magnificent. I cannot give enough praise for his enthusiasm, his work ethic throughout and his management/organisational skills. A lovely sense of humour. All three worked well as a team and are to be congratulated on the way they performed their duties

Pete Webb Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2013

Loved it and didn’t want it to end

Maurice Hoare Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2013

I’d like to thank you for all the hard work you put in before we left-sorting accommodation, transfers, meals etc. Everything ran like clockwork and it’s a credit to you that it did. You have a great company that I’d recommend in a heartbeat to anybody and would eagerly use again.

Esther Hansen Lands End to John O'Groats July/August 2013

Maurice and I really enjoyed the tour – indeed I think it might even have the status of “best holiday ever”! Yes the weather helped, but I think for both of us it was the people who made the holiday – both the tour leaders and the other participants- I have to admit I felt quite emotional leaving everyone at Inverness Station and to think we had only known each other for two weeks!

Fran Hoare Lands End to John O'Groats July/August

I wish we could have had a day off at JOG then turned and gone back to LE, it was that superb. I hope to join you for Dover to Cape Wrath next July, please can we have Graham, Phil and Niv (and sunshine!)

Sarah Grigor Lands End to John O'Groats July 2013

The route was amazing! Lots of smaller quiet roads through fantastic scenery – what’s not to like?!

This is the best holiday I have ever had. The heady mix of exercise, fantastic scenery and great people add up to an experience I will treasure forever. Thank you Peak Tours I have had the time of my life!

Fiona Narburgh Lands End to John O'Groats July 2013

The owners of the B&B’s were uniformly excellent in the service they gave

Geoff Searle Lands End to John O'Groats July 2013

This is the best thing I have ever done and Peak Tours organisation and planning is superb. If you want to do something life changing, do LEJOG and do it with Peak Tours!

Mike Hopkins Lands End to John O'Groats July 2013

The Accommodations exceeded my expectations.

Keeping the tour off busy roads saves lives and makes for a more memorable ride. It’s nice to see that there still is a bit of “Old England” that still exists

David William Chester Lands End to John O'Groats June/July 2013

Many, many thanks to you and all at Peak Tours. The experience was fantastic and a challenge that I will never forget. Graham, James and Johnny were superb and the logistics, arrangements, route notes, B&B’s, brew van stops and general organisation was highly effective and enabled a memorable experience for all.

Andy Nichol Lands End to John O'Groats June/July 2013

My memory of the route is not of the hills but of the fabulous downhills that seemed to go on for miles!

Everything went smoothly and was extremely well organised. The whole route was made much easier and enjoyable with the brew stops and lunch stops.

Trish Winterbottom Lands End to John O'Groats June/July 2013

Suberb route, well researched and put together. Good use of NCN and main roads where unavoidable

Andy Nichol Lands End to John O'Groats June/July 2013

The guys were excellent. Very professional, dedicated and approachable

Mike Grigg Lands End to John O'Groats June/July 2013

The tour organisation was great. The riders only had the bike, roads, weather, direction, hills, food and drink to worry about. You really do enter a different world for two weeks. Brilliant!

Colin Loader Lands End to John O'Groats June 2013

The route was truly exceptional, the Garmin routes were excellent and your team knew virtually all of the detail

Tony Thurston Lands End to John O'Groats June 2013

One of the joys of the trip was the variety of places that we stayed. I particularly liked The Mill in Conder Green and The Crask

Clare Hearnshaw Lands End to John O'Groats June 2013

I thought the group size was just right, the group spread out during cycling and it was nice to meet up later for the group meals

John and Jill Hetherington Lands End to John O'Groats June 2013

I would recommend Peak Tours to anyone. Customer service, organisation, enjoyment, detail, flexibility, brilliant!

Ron Hulman Lands End to John O'Groats June 2013

I thought the route notes were very clear and concise – a veritable triumph!

The trip of a lifetime, how do you improve upon perfection?!

Gary Green Lands End to John O'Groats June 2013

All the lunch stops were great, the brew van was excellent and a great joy to reach each day, I love the brew van – will miss that!

Loved our tour leader (Lee ) and guides,. They were always jolly and motivated us all in the right direction even on the tough days. They must be exhausted working for 2 weeks with no break, however that never showed in their behaviour and personality, I felt well looked after.

Had a great two weeks and found the whole trip mentally relaxing! I’ll probably get cycle withdrawal symptoms! I would definitely recommend Peak Tours.

Liz Hook Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

Awesome. Keep doing what you’re doing.

Mark Goodwill Lands End to John O'Groats June 2013

Loved the fact that the accommodation hosts were so welcoming, accommodating offering to wash wet/dirty cycling gear, asking how our day had been etc. Little things like that do make a difference!

Having selected Peak Tours because we wanted organisation without it feeling organised, we have to say it was spot on. It was so very well organised that it just flowed

We loved the training weekend, it gave us the confidence to approach LEJOG knowing what we’d been doing was along the right lines

Lee, Neil and Graham could not have done more. They were organised, helpful, sympathetic, motivating and fun. They made the whole experience flow so that all we had to do each day was get on our bikes each day and cycle. If LEJOG could ever be said to be “easy” they made it feel so.

Gary and Lisa Eato Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

Evening meals were brilliant, a good combination of “organised” evenings and free choice.

The brewstops were brilliant in every respect and responded to my requests

All three (Lee, Neil and Graham) were outstanding in every respect. They were all extremely professional; supportive and encouraging; well informed about the ride and route and helpful in sorting out bike problems, I can’t praise them enough.

I had a fantastic time and would recommend Peak Tours very highly to anybody contemplating LEJOG

David Wynn Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

Evening meals were brilliant, a good combination of “organised” evenings and free choice. David Wynn May 2013

The brewstops were brilliant in every respect and responded to my requests David Wynn May 2013

All three (Lee, Neil and Graham) were outstanding in every respect. They were all extremely professional; supportive and encouraging; well informed about the ride and route and helpful in sorting out bike problems, I can’t praise them enough.

Ian Shipton Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

Overall a brilliant tour which I would recommend to anyone wishing to do a LEJOG

Neil 10/10 Graham 10/10 Lee 11/10

Chris Sullivan Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

The tour surpassed all my expectations

Chris Sullivan Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

A first class route

Lee is a star, Neil will be missed and Graham is a first class addition to the team, Nothing was too much trouble for the group. They communicated all necessary information well, helped to maintain the bikes and organised everything.

Lunches were great at every venue. Snacks in the brew van were varied and plentiful

John Pointon Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

Lee, Neil and Graham did an excellent job of seeing everything ran smoothly and that everyone was happy, thanks again to you all you made the tour enjoyable

Matty Davies Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

A good balance between a demanding route and a fun holiday. It didn’t take itself too seriously, but was professional in its delivery.

Phil N Lands End to John O'Groats May 2013

I would like to complement you on the amazing way in which you organised our tour, and supported us all the way to John”O’Groats. I cannot speak highly enough about you, and of course Phil and Graham. It was wonderful to arrive at the end of a day and find our bags in the room. The B&Bs were well chosen, and won me over to B&Bs , rather than hotels.

Andy H Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Thanks for a truly life-changing experience during this ride.So many unforgetable moments with interesting individuals that the photos keep me reminded of. A special thank you to Steve, Graham, and Phil whose organisation and support was terrific.

Norman B Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic experience. The support provided by yourself, Graham and Phil was superb and very reassuring. Everything ran so smoothly it probably doesn't make us appreciate the effort that has to go into the organisation and looking after everybody's different needs. What was most impressive was that support always seemed to be able to be provided to everybody no matter where they were on the route. I still don't know how you managed that with no sign of stress shown by any of you.

Tony W Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Thank you, Steve, for sending along the great photos. I have thoroughly enjoyed going through each one just now and once more reliving our outstanding adventure together. I fear my poor wife and dear friends back here at home in the States are tiring of my endless chatter about LEJOG. But it will remain always one of the best and most fun things I have ever done in my life. I loved each day as well as being with all of you. Please know of my great gratitude for everyone's good cheer having a lone American along for the ride; y'all were very gracious to me! You Brits have one gloriously beautiful kingdom, and it was a privilege for me to see the country this way.

Leigh S Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

"An amazing experience, the weather, body, bike, and social challenges. The journey became more physically, and mentally achievable as the days went by. It made me draw so deep everyday on many different levels, that I can not begin to tell you (it has enabled me to grow and develop in mind, body, and soul!). I almost did not want it to end.......Why not spend the rest of your life cycling around the world, living out of a rucksack, and a pannier! However, life goes on, and I would miss my good friends!"

Tracy O Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

The Accommodation was great and the owners where very friendly and helpful and the ones doing our washing was a great help.

Loved the route with some great traffic free roads and lovely views.

Route notes where excellent and very clear to read so they tell me as we left that up to Jim and Tony !!!

The tour organisation was excellent much better than I had expected. A big thanks to you, Phil and Graham, you all could not have been more helpful.

I loved the tour, we had a great time and met lots of nice people so its something I will never forget.

I will have no problems in recommending your tour to any one so thanks again for making LEJOG such a great 14 days and hope all goes well in the future.

Mark G Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Thanks again for the trip, I have stayed at some pretty nice resorts and not had the good time I had with your operation.

I have told people about it and mentioned that your 100% professional as are Graham and Phil.

I have never seen 24 strangers 27 including you guys, for 2 weeks be in such close quarters without a cross word or bad comment about something, that alone says you ran a successful trip. A good time was had all around.

Dana F Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Clearly a lot of effort had gone into ensuring the best possible route at all times.

Route notes faultless, knowledge of the route by Peak Tours very good – realistic and sensible

Steve, Phil & Graham could not have been more helpful, more supportive, always smiling, always there, quietly efficient

Thank you for making what had been a long term ambition come true – the support and service you offered made it possible for me

Punch M Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Route was brilliant with good use of NCN etc. It was amazing that you managed to keep the route notes so accurate. Notes backed up by excellent briefing each morning.

Brilliant organisation, brilliant leadership and a brilliant experience from start to finish. Many Thanks to Steve Graham & Phil.

Trevor C Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Perfection on Wheels!

Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

Route was fantastic – quiet country lanes with A roads at a minimum. I find this difficult to do for local training routes so to have such a great routes for the length of the UK shows the preparation and planning you have carried out.

For what must be a daunting task I thought the tour organisation was excellent. Morning debrief very good idea, route notes good, arrangements with luggage van , brew van etc - excellent. All the staff very approachable and more than helpful with any questions even at the end of a long day.

Good mix of choice of pubs some evenings / group meals on others. Tour cost seemed reasonable when we booked it up when you broke it down day by day. Having been on the tour and experienced what was provided this is definitely the case.

Thank you for helping me achieve an ambition / dream I have had since I was 15 years old.

Steve P Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

The tour organisation was ten out of ten, I think you had everything covered. I wish I was doing it again next week.

David W Lands End to John O'Groats April 2013

I saw some parts of the U.K i didn't know existed; some beautiful towns and villages. I saw some amazing scenery, The Wye Valley, The Highlands etc, etc. The Sustrans cycle paths were great. All in all a great route difficult to better.

All the lunch stops were tremendous, excellent quality and large amounts to feed hungry people. Really excellent!

I met some lovely people. We all seemed to gel well and get on. Much of this was down to the skills of the three organisers who made sure things worked.

BRILLIANT!! Wonderful organisation. Tony, Lee and Neil deserve instant beatification. I felt they really cared. They were sensitive to situations, they never ceased smiling and encouraging. They were tolerant and never judgmental of my laziness and disorganisation. A really great team. Without them i'm certain i wouldn't have finshed. And Lee's one mean guitarist too!!

I feel elated, disconnected from reality and really pleased to have had such a wonderful adventure with such a lovely group of people.

T, Issit Lands End to John O'Groats September 2012

I loved the fact that it's quite understated, no fussing or faffing about, keep up the low key approach.

The lads were brilliant, in fact for me it was them that made the whole thing possible, all I had to do was pedal. All three of them of them went out of their way to help us and were happy from start to finish.

The tour was fantastic, don't fix what ain't broke, you're doing a great job!

G, Caine Lands End to John O'Groats September 2012

Lee, Neil and Tony were absolute superstars and set the tone for the whole trip. I can't praise them highly enough. They were professional, knowledgable and helpful to a fault, organised, diligent, cheerful and a whole lot of fun. An absolute credit to Peak Tours

G, Phillips Lands End to John O'Groats September 2012

I loved the informal, but at the same time efficient approach

Great tour leader/team and overall back-up.

A most enjoyable two weeks which was made easier by the input from Peak Tours

G, Dent Lands End to John O'Groats September 2012

Tour guides were perfect! Smoothly organised. No complaints. Thank you!

I, Grant Lands End to John O'Groats September 2012

Hi Steve, can i just say what a fantastic experience the tour was. Great bunch of people from all different backgrounds. The B and B's were great, the lunch stops were all of a high quality. The route notes spot on! A special mention to all three guides who were fantastic and certainly earned their money over the two weeks. Lee was very professional throughout and i could tell he really loves what he does. Neil was brilliant! always cheerful had a great laugh with him he really got my sense of humour! And Tony is just quality he too has got a great personality, which you definitely need for this job. I have not one complaint! Loved every minute! Full marks from me. Thanks again.

T, Lobley Lands End to John O'Groats September 2012

A great team who made the 1000 miles a pleasure. Thank you very much

J, Parmar Lands End to John O'Groats September 2012

I found navigation really easy and i was warned about this beforehand as it's not a strongpoint of mine

My suggestions are just that. I couldn't find fault ( I would say 'if i tried' but i did try!) I would have no hesitations in recommending you to anyone. Steve, Nigel and Graham really made the trip. I felt totally supported and looked after in every way from being fed well, being encouraged, being advised to looking after my bike (and my flip flop!)

R, Crisp Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

First rate organisation, it's hard to imagine how it could be bettered

A wonderful experience that i have recommended to my friends

From my perspective perfect

R, Hamilton Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

Generally speaking the quality of service is not particularly high in the U.K as we discussed during the tour, but there are always exceptions, i think that you are one of them!

I felt that Steve, Nigel and Graham were excellent leaders/partners to travel with. Companying with twenty-five people for two weeks is not an easy task, but you did it fantastically. I was truly impressed with all of you!

The trip was an unforgettable experience and i felt that i chose the right company.

T, Kitagawa Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

All accommodation was to a very high standard with a very friendly service, clean and comfortable

The route was challenging but very enjoyable throughout

The food was fantastic, varied and plentiful.

I have never been on anything so well organised, which made the whole experience extremely enjoyable.

Steve, Graham and Nigel 'Three Lovely Chaps' who made the trip really enjoyable, nothing was too much trouble, all were well organised and informed, a very big thank you to all!

M, Smith Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

The route is well thought out and went through some of the most beautiful parts of the country.

There was a good mix of people and enough that smaller groups of similar ability were formed.

It was well organised and ran very smoothly. Well done

What can i say? - it was the best thing i've ever done and i would do it again tomorrow. I haven't laughed so much in years!

Keep doing what you're doing it was ACE!! There was a good mix of people and enough that smaller groups of similar ability were formed.

J, Mc Roberts Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

Cannot fault the tour in any way whatsoever it was fantastic food, route, accommodation and staff were all above any expectation i was hoping for. And people were as friendly and helpful, thank you so much.

D, Duffy Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

The tour organisation was first class, 11/10 !!

L, Farmer Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

All the B&B's i stayed in were good, especially the walled garden in Moreton Hampstead, the landlady was very helpful and the place was immaculate. Obviously the Crask Inn was another highlight; a surreal but wonderful place to stay!

I thought the route was excellent. It kept us off the main roads wherever possible which was really appreciated

The route notes were detailed, clear and easy to follow

It was such a luxury to have all the lunches organised and ready to eat

I was continually impressed by the organisation throughout the duration of the trip. It seemed that every eventuality had been thought of. The brew stops also seemed to always be at exactly the point where i was thinking i really need a brew stop!

The training weekend was excellent. It gave me a real taster of how the days riding would work. It also gave me a real idea of how fit i would need to be.

I really can't find any fault with this trip ata all i will happily be recommending Peak Tours to anyone who wants to do a similar trip

F, Berry Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

The attention to detail impressed me the most, you thought of everything.

Unforgettable for all the right reasons.

The tour is perfect, keep doing what you're doing!

S, Whitehead Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

The tour organisation was superb, i know you've done many and are so well practised in organising these tours but the van stops/milage and routes taken (ie where accommodation was and the terrain covered before and after) was perfect in my opinion.

S, Blake Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

From start to finish it way exceeded my expectations. From the routes to the milage each day and the individual care.

A, Griffiths Lands End to John O'Groats August 2012

I would recommend you to anyone, in fact i have!

Enjoyed it immensely. You and the team exceeded all expectations

Lands End to John O'Groats July 2012

Couldn't believe the lunches - especially the Sunday Carvery near Kendal. I put weight on during the tour so it must have been good!

M, Starr Lands End to John O'Groats July 2012

All B&B's were comfortable and welcoming

N, Hall Lands End to John O'Groats July 2012

Nice mix of people. Group large enough to be able to socialise with a variety of different characters. Worked well

It surpassed my expectations, i absolutely loved it

K, Meadows Lands End to John O'Groats July 2012

I thought the route excellent. It was interesting and challenging and i liked the fact it avoided as many main roads as possible. I did just over 1000 miles. It was useful having a few options as well. I have subsequently talked to other people who have done the record route and i think i made the right choice.

B, Thomas Lands End to John O'Groats July 2012

All the accommodation was of a very high standard run by pleasant people who were welcoming and helpful. At the end of a very wet day on the bike it was really nice to know there would be a hot shower, comfortable bed and good food. Those owners who were willing to wash cycling kit were particularly useful and perhaps it would be possible to stress this point to the owners of the B&B's

Lee, Neil and Rod were very well organised and everything happened where and when they said it would. The brew van stops and organised lunch stops were most welcome and contrasted strongly with my previous LEJOG where you were basically left to fend for yourself all day. Although i didn't suffer mechanical problems or health/injury issues, it was good to know that back-up was available if needed.

J, Holmes Lands End to John O'Groats July 2012

Excellent route with limited time spent on busy roads.

The training weekend was very useful, it helped focus my mind about the amount of training required.

A great experience and one that i will never forget. It was tough but thoroughly enjoyable at the same time

D, Clark Lands End to John O'Groats July 2012

Excellent, I don't have to say anymore, just excellent!

Excellent from the day i called you to the end. Excellent value for money and three great lads to help me on my way.

R, Davis Lands End to John O'Groats June 2012

From start to finish a very slick operation

M, Steer Lands End to John O'Groats June 2012

Well thought out and briefed. The three operators responded quickly and effectively to changing circumstances, well done!

Helpful to relatives! All staff were courteous towards myself and daughters on seeing Martin off and cheering him back in and welcoming. Thank you for looking after him!!!

M, Llewellyn Lands End to John O'Groats June 2012

Having a cuppa from the back of the van mid morning and mid afternoon was perfect and something i haven't seen on other trips. Excellent supply of biscuits and bananas(and strawberries!!)

D, Brook Lands End to John O'Groats June 2012

Fantastic route notes with meticulous planning and the milages were spot on

R, Grimmer Lands End to John O'Groats June 2012

Really enjoyed the training weekend. It was good to meet with others and also to see how Peak Tours worked as an organisation.

J, De wit Lands End to John O'Groats May 2012

I just wanted to say thank you for a superb trip, It was a fantastic experience and extremely well organised and run from beginning to end. It was an absolute pleasure to meet both of you and I hope to ride with you again before too long.

M Nichols Lands End to John O'Groats September 2011

Now that I have settled back in at home I wanted to write and express my gratitude and appreciation that you, your company and Nick put into organising the End to End over the past couple of weeks. Personally, I feel that my achievement could not have happened without your tremendous support. What was particularly remarkable for me and I think Phil was the 'hands on' personal service you gave. I imagine that by the end you were feeling as exhausted as we were. I was very impressed with way both you and Nick tried to accommodate the varied needs, wants and capabilities of the group. It was a group of such diverse experience and ability so it was a tribute to you that we all made it 'home'.

I rather enjoyed the mix of B&Bs as all were distinctive and enjoyable in their own way. The comaraderie amongst the group was great and it was good to see that emerge over the weeks.

Once again I have nothing but praise for the very personal and informal organisation of the trip and I wish you every success with the business in the future. Don't forget to let me know when the London - Vienna ride gets off the ground.

D Woodman Lands End to John O'Groats September 2011

Just a quick note to say thank you for making the September lejog such a memorable experience for me. It was always reassuring to know that you were around to deal with any problems.

I'm sure that as participants we didn't see or know about all the headaches you had to deal with behind the scenes. Thanks also for doing the running repairs on my bike in such a calm & professional way.

All in all, a great trip and I would thoroughly recommend Peak Tours to anyone else contemplating doing the end to end.

P Skipp Lands End to John O'Groats September 2011

Loved every minute of it!

S Briars Lands End to John O'Groats September 2011

It's up there with the best experiences of my life!

Lands End to John O'Groats August 2011

Fantastic & very helpful guides - supportive & always there.

Karen Lands End to John O'Groats August 2011

Trip of a lifetime!

Lands End to John O'Groats August 2011

I am writing to thank you for an excellent tour from LE to JOG. The tour by far exceeded my expectations. As I mentioned at our celebration dinner, it seems important to you for us to enjoy, not just endure the trip. My favorite places to stay were the aged buildings with creaky floors and narrow stairs (still clean and comfortable with good food and a hot shower). I believe your soft-spoken and patient manner helped secure the sense of camaraderie that made the trip a pleasure.

I thank you also for helping me with my pre-trip questions.

By way of contrast, I would mention what I observed at the pub in Mey where we gathered on the last day. Each time one of our riders came through the door, there was a spontaneous cheer from the group already assembled. It was not planned or forced, but a genuine appreciation for the success of each person. Also in the same pub were the riders of another company. Each time one of their riders came through the door, there was just a glance and shrug of the shoulders. I find this a very telling story.

I thank you and Nick for leading us through the small villages and narrow roads on a very scenic route. It was a great challenge and adventure.

J Jenkins Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

The tour exceeded my expectations. I had planned this as a once in a lifetime opportuntity & now have the memories to cherish. The added bonus was the chance to establish friendhips & to share the daily experiences with other riders.

Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

I was highly impressed with how slick everything was. You were dealing with a lot on a daily basis but never got rattled. Both Steve & Nick were excellent. I felt fully supported at all times.

I have no hesitation in recommending you to other people, in fact I already have. I would also be interested in future tours aswell.

S Moore Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

Just a quick note to say how much I really enjoyed the 2 weeks. I thought the whole group gelled together remarkably well and with lots of laughs and encouragement along the way. All over far too soon.

It’s taken several days to come down from the high of day after day of scenery, camaraderie, eating, riding and witty banter!

A special thanks to you and Nick for making it all so relaxed, friendly and exceptionally well organised. 10 out of 10.

Hope the August tour goes well without you………a very tough act to follow.

Please do let me know as soon as you have more details of your proposed European tour……. I could be the first to sign up!

M Taylor Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

Just wanted to say a further massive thank you to you both for an absolutely fabulous LEJOG holiday/challenge. It was all I hoped it would be and much more, enjoyed the whole ride and really appreciated the fantastic support/organisation and support from yourselves.

Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

The route was fantastic – great mix of rural roads & NCN routes – we did very little cycling on busy roads & where we did it was unavoidable. The route up through Scotland in particular was brilliant.

The lunches were absolutely fantastic – a great choice & just the right type of food. Provided the opportunity to meet up before the afternoon cycling. Breakfasts at both B&B’s & YHA’s were also very good. Never felt hungry for the whole ride.

Both Steve & Nick did their own individual roles to perfection – in addition it was done in such a way as you never felt a nuisance asking for anything, asking advice etc. I thought the ‘atmosphere’ that you generated/fostered within the group was first class!

The tour was everything I hoped it would be & much more. I have never been on any tours before so was a bit apprehensive as to what to expect & whether I’d cope, but I can honestly say that I loved the while experience – even the rainy day out of Slaidburn – a real achievement!

C Ball Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

Steve & Nick were first class – hard working, well informed, constantly thinking forward and so good humoured – the pair of you should give classes.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour – did what it said on the tin. Peak Tours did a sterling job.

D Anderson Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

The tour organisation was excellent, I couldn’t fault it. Also the bike pack & return service was great – bike got back quickly & had been very well packed.

Hats off to both Steve & Nick for unfailing patience, good humour, hard work & stamina in coping with everything we & fate could throw at you and still come up smiling.

N Scott Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011

Highly recommended – would definitely recommend to anyone else thinking about doing this challenge as well as any other challenges. The best organised tour I have been on by a mile!

S Swann Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011

Just had a great time. I think the relaxed way it runs suited me perfectly. If I felt like trying to beat Steve to the destination, that was fine. Other days take it easy and ride at the back, again fine. I saw one group in Keswick who were all dressed in the same firms jackets and were in a very orderly single file, that would have got right up my nose!

J Billingham Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011

Steve's gormet spreads were great. Good variety & quality of food & nice option to have hot drinks, top effort!

The tour was really well run. I would happily recommend to others. A great way to see the UK!.

V Anstiss Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011

I really enjoyed the route - it was a bit of everything & we managed to stay off busy roads which was great.

The lunches & snack stops were sensational - I was amazed & really pleased at the variety of options and it meant that no matter what you felt like there was always something good to eat.

The tour organisation was brilliant. I was really impressed & really enjoyed it - would have happily cycled back to Lands End!

D Irvine Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the great organisation that obviously went into the Lejog tour we have just finished. There was almost nothing that could have been better from the moment we arrived in St Just (I can’t believe that was only 2 weeks ago).

The accommodation was good (and The Crask Inn was just fantastic) the lunches were brilliant, the route was excellent, as were the Route Notes (whenever I felt the need to read them) and the support we received from you and Nick was just superb (especially the support you gave to me after my fall).

If I ever do anything like this again, it will definitely Peak Tours that I turn to first, and I’ll continue to recommend you to anyone who asks.

Thanks again and all the best for now.

J Norman Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011

The route was fantastic and I was really pleased we stayed far enough West to do the Lake District which I thought was a real highlight of the trip. Too many good days to mention but the last day ride as far as Bettyhill was particularly fantastic and I loved the trip up the Welsh border and the long, long downhill to Taunton racecourse was brilliant!

Bags were always available and in the right place, lunch was always where it was expected to be, evening meals were booked – spot on. Left us with nothing to think about other than getting up and riding, which is exactly what we wanted.

It was absolutely brilliant. Couldn’t have hoped for a better two weeks. Only problem is it has given me a taste for it and I am already wondering how I will find enough holidays next year to do it again!!!

J Cashen Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010

Had a fantastic time and wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend to others. A big thank you to both!

Carol P Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010

I loved the route and thought it was very well planned – taking us quickly through built up areas and along mainly quiet cycle-friendly roads. Some of the route was not particularly suitable for a road bike but generally there was an alternative route so that was good.

Really helpful, friendly, warm hearted team.

Best holiday for a very long time!

Carol T Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010

We felt the organisation was overwhelmingly accommodating and friendly and had a great impression that nothing was too much trouble.

Mark, S Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010

Certainly a trip to remember for all the right reasons – well done!

Mick, S Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010

I enjoyed the cycle routes & quiet country lanes, so much so that returning to London afterwards and commuting to work was a huge shock to the system!

It was appropriately challenging and I thought the route avoided the major roads as much as practicable.

I strongly recommend the tour to anyone, well organised, all eventualities covered. Really enjoyed it.

S-J Dominic Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010

We felt and friendly and had a great impression that nothing was too much trouble.

Mark S LEJOG September 2010

Loved every minute, even the rain didn’t seem so bad when in a group. Both yourself & Nick did a cracking job, many thanks.

Bruce W LEJOG September 2010

Certainly a trip to remember for all the right reasons – well done!
