Route Information: John O’Groats to Thurso
Miles to cycle: 33.5 miles
Altitude to climb: 1549 ft
A relatively short opening days ride of just 33.5 miles to Thurso, deliberately designed to allow us all to gently find our cycle legs, but also to take some time out to enjoy this northern part of Scotland.
We will, add a couple of miles to take in the views from John O’Groats Lighthouse at Duncansby Head Lighthouse, before heading eastwards towards
Dunnet Head, a peninsula in Caithness, on the north coast of Scotland, which is the most northerly point of the mainland British Isles.
