The individual regions
In the west, the land tends to be rugged and characterized by cliffs with deep gashes along the seashore, while in the east it is flat with extensive rolling landscapes and long beaches. In central England, again, there are rounded low mountains with several ridges, in front of which wide plains extend in the south. Northwards towards Scotland, these elevations are followed by the Uplands and the central lowlands around Glasgow and Edinburgh, before the legendary Highlands and the Scottish wilderness begins. Each of the regions has its own natural beauty, some of it spectacular, ranging from the white cliffs of Dover to moors, heaths and ridges to the high plateaus of rugged northern Scotland.
Cycling in England
When one speaks of Great Britain or the United Kingdom, most people immediately think of England. But many people confuse the two, because England is only one part of the United Kingdom, along with Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. But with an area of about 130,000 square kilometres and a population of about 54 million, it is the largest. With its capital London, England also has the largest city in Europe. The home of the Queen attracts millions of tourists to the metropolis every year. But not only the city life, but also the scenic diversity of the smaller villages, are definitely worth a trip. Especially by bike, these impressive natural sceneries can be marvelled at.
Cycling in Scotland
The northern country of Great Britain, Scotland, is known for its rugged mountain landscape. Especially the Cairngorms and the Northwest Highlands characterize this area. Wild, but also full of beauty, Scotland presents itself to all its visitors. Outdoor fans such as passionate cyclists love this country. The well-developed cycle paths in the cities such as Edinburgh and Glasgow as well as in the outlying villages are ideal for a cycle tour in Scotland. Discover spectacular natural scenery, secluded coastlines, exciting mountain valleys and inviting pubs.
This cycle tour takes you through arguably one of the most beautiful regions of Scotland. Perthshire, also called the County of Perth, is a very traditional and beautiful county. During the Ice Age, the Highland Rift Valley was formed, which since then has cut diagonally through the country from west to east. Our itinerary follows this fault line.
Useful information about your cycling holiday in Great Britain
The climate in Great Britain
The climate is as varied as the topography. The west coast offers excellent conditions for cycling, but has higher rainfall and more gradients. The east coast, on the other hand, is protected from the harsh Atlantic weather and is milder and flatter. Temperatures are moderate all year round due to the island location and the moderating influence of the sea, and rarely fall below 0° Celsius, even in winter. In summer, on the other hand, temperatures are almost perfect for your cycling holiday, hovering between 20° and 25° Celsius during the day. The best time to travel is usually June and July. In the months before that, you can expect dry and cooler weather, and from mid-July onwards, precipitation increases significantly.
Who hasn't stood in front of a breakfast buffet and thought to themselves at the sight of baked beans, bacon, eggs, toast, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, who is going to eat that? The answer is the British, because in Britain such a hearty breakfast, also known as English Breakfast, is quite common. At lunchtime, it's just as hearty and, above all, fried. One of the favourite dishes is fish and chips, which you can be served with various sauces in any pub, restaurant or chip shop. After this course, the famous "tea time" awaits. The British simply love drinking tea. The most popular type is black tea, also known as "English Breakfast Tea", which is drunk with a splash of milk.
