Cycle Britain delivers epic 23-day e-bike LEJOG tour to New Zealand group…

It all began back in 2022. Cycle Britain HQ were contacted by a group of friends who were cycling enthusiasts from New Zealand. They were interested in combining a visit to the UK with their passion for cycling. The group consisted of a variety of different ages and fitness levels – ages ranged between 50 and 73. It was agreed at the outset that to allow them to fully enjoy the beautiful sights that Britain had to offer, they would hire latest generation Cube Katmandu e-bikes from Cycle Britain and undertake the LEJOG tour across 23 days. This lower mileage ensured they could savour the charming villages and breathtaking scenery we would journey through.

Director of Cycle Britain, Alan Little and his support team, worked closely with the group in the months running up to the tour getting input on everything from accommodation, sightseeing stops, restaurants and even dietary requirements.

The 23-day electric bike tour was completed throughout July and August 2022 and many of you will have followed some of the blogs on our website and posts on social media during it. But don’t just take our word for it. Check out this amazing review below that we were given by Hugh Grey on Trip Advisor

We loved the tour so much, that we’ve put together (with a little help), an amazing video of the LEJOG tour for you to enjoy.

We have two planned 23-day e-bike tours for 2023. We have limited availability left on these due to their popularity.

England, Wales and Scotland will all roll beneath your wheels on this route which showcases the best and most varied landscapes available. Cycle Britain offer a range of different tours to suit your level of cycling proficiency. If the 23-day tour isn’t for you, we offer either Southern England (days 1-7), Wales and rest of England (days 8-14) or Scotland (days 15-23). We offer these as three separate tour stages that can be booked via our website. If you want the flexibility of joining a stage on a specific day, we can offer that too – in which case we can price that up for you on request.
