The Garbage Run September 2017 - take part


After the success of the first one, when 27 riders made it from the bottom of the UK all the way to the top, I've decided to run it again.

As before it'll be a week long trip, leaving Land's End on the 9th September, with the plan to reach John o'Groats the following Saturday; the 16th.

The route will once again be mainly rural and scenic roads. There will be no motorways so L plate riders welcome. Bikes of all cc are fine to attend, though if you can come on something smaller then I would advise it.

It's not a guided tour; people can ride whichever route they like, and at their own pace. On the first Garbage Run half of the riders formed one group, whilst others went off in smaller groups or sometimes solo.

A nightly rest stop is provided, as well as lunch time meeting points. If you want to ride with the main group you can. If you want to splinter off and meet up at the end of the day or at lunch time that's cool as well. Ultimately it's your adventure and there is no right way or wrong way of doing it.

This is an unsupported run so people need to be self sufficient where possible. Basic tools would be handy to bring. Accommodation will be a mixture of camp sites and the odd bunkhouse. The price includes a minimum of 5 nights camping.

Due to the volume of interest, and because for some people it might work out better, I'll run a second trip down from John o'Groats to Land's End, commencing on Sunday 17th September and arriving in Land's End on the 24th. A different route will be taken on the way down as it was on the way back up.
