An epic adventure, exploring some of the UK's most spectacular scenery, cycle along remote roads. You keep to a schedule that best suits your own abilities and riding style. Comprehensive WWW links, smartphone apps to enable you to plan for your style of cycling. Either ride as (say) a nominal 300km per day, and sleep at regular intervals, riding the route entirely in daylight. Or ride non-stop, and resting where or when you feel like it. Ferry crossings need to be planned, some could be by-passed - although the detours may involve a considerable increase in riding distance. This is an X-rated event - so, the ride is Audax at it's most litteral and exciting.
