North Coast 500 – named the UK’s ‘most Instagrammable’ route…

In a recent 2022 poll, the North Coast of Scotland (NC500) was deemed to be the most photogenic of all UK road routes.  It came out as one of the top instagrammable routes in the world by hashtag volume beating out other UK contenders such as Northern Ireland’s Lever’s Causeway and Wales’ Elan Valley. With over 341,000 posts using the #NC500 hashtag, it had more than double its nearest competitor.

Bealach Na Ba - North Coast 500

The team at Cycle Britain have first-hand experience of running e-bike and road cycle tours throughout the UK, including the NC500.  One of Britain’s most legendary road trips, the team at Cycle Britain have adapted the route to allow time to cycle it and enjoy the very best that Scotland has to offer.  E-bikes have now made previously inaccessible routes available to all.  Some now even describe the downhill sections as the ‘boring bits’ due to how easy e-bikes cope with steep hills.

Cycle Britain Tour with e-bikes

E-bikes

You have the option of bringing your own e-bikes on the tour or hiring one from Cycle Britain.  You can contact for advice on the right type of bike to bring/hire for the trip.  We have a fleet of 12 latest-generation 2022 Cube Kathmandu Hybrid e-bikes for rental. Hybrid e-bikes are appropriate for a wide range of terrains and offers the opportunity to explore landscapes and parts of the countryside you would otherwise miss.

Support

The tour is fully supported with an expert guide and support van.  The support van is there to carry your bags and provide snacks and refreshments, as well as kitted out for making minor repairs to bikes (and carrying spare batteries etc).  Our friendly guide will ride with you throughout the entire tour.  The team ensure that accommodation is booked and runs seamlessly and that any meals provided (breakfasts, lunches and snacks are provided).
