A Coastal Craic
High Roads & Low Roads!
Duration: 11 Nights
Dates: 18 - 29 August 2021
The British Isles have some of the most dramatic and glorious landscape in Europe. We have designed a trip that will take you to some of the most stunning parts of these islands, through the Yorkshire Moors, the Northumbrian forest and into the glories of the Scottish Highlands to John O' Groats, continuing round the fabulous west coast and back down through the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District, with the final night in the gorgeous county of Herefordshire.
We thought we would begin the trip with a good hearty brunch in the fabled café at Krazy Horse (Bury St Edmonds), finishing after the 10th and final night in the picturesque village of Bodenham in Herefordshire with a cup of coffee and a cake with our friends at the Krazy Horse Farmhouse, a short ride away in the Cotswolds.
This tour of the best roads in Scotland will get the blood pumping and will remind you of all the reasons you love your motorcycle! The route will incorporate parts of the famous NC500, but with our own take on what we consider to be more interesting roads added in. The breathtaking views are sublime and the roads challenging. All in all, a great way to ride some of the best motorcycling roads in Britain..!
We aim to leave in the morning by 9.00am and aim to be at our destination by 6.00pm in the evening. This equates to around 6 hours in the saddle - we typically ride for an hour and a half before a 20 minute break for coffee with a 1 hour stop for lunch and another break in the afternoon. We are definitely happy to stop to admire the view and for photo opportunities along the way.
Trip runs from Thursday am to Sunday am, incorporating 10 nights away
