Clear blue skies in Cumbria for Carlisle to St Bees on Day 37

Introducing Britain’s ultimate fundraising cycling challenge, The Great Tour; a 6,700km bicycle journey circumnavigating around the coastline of Great Britain in 64 consecutive days to raise money for charities and good causes.  Check out our route for summer 2020 and follow our progress from Saturday 4 July onwards around the coast with our updates.

Highlighting the beauty of Britain’s varied and dramatic coastline; the history; the wildlife and its culture; never losing the sight, smell, sense or sound of the sea, The Great Tour aims to support community, health and environmental charities and causes, while also supporting our coastal economies.

Held twice to date – in 2010 and 2015 – when the event raised money for a number of charities including MacMillan, The Prostate Cancer Charity and Anthony Nolan among others, The Great Tour takes in every seaside port, village, town and city along every kilometre of coastline, bringing Britain’s glorious seascape to life.
