The Plan

In September 2021 the Bicycle Adventure Club are going to Cycle 516 miles around the North Coast 500. Starting and ending at Inverness Castle. The NC500 is Scotlands very own Route 66 and one of the top 5 coastal routes in the world.

It was developed in 2015 by the North Highland Initiative Tourism Project Board as a driving route. Polpularised as a cycling challenge by Mark Beaumont and the Adventure Syndicate.

We aren’t endurace athletes. We aren’t even athletes. We are just 5 women who love an adventure and think we can do something extraordinary.

Our start date for the ride is 9th September 2021. That gives us all plenty of time to train. We have allowed 8 days to complete the route averaging 65 miles per day. That is the challenge. To ride 8 back to back 65 mile days starting from little or no experience of such a ride.

By setting the challenge up as a Bicycle Adventure Club Project and inviting you to follow our journey we hope to inspire other adventures and to mark and monitor our progress.
