From England To Scotland By Bike: A 1,300 Km Long Cycle Route Has Been Opened.

Did you know that in the UK there is an approximately 1,300-kilometer cycle route connecting the region of England to the northern border of Scotland? A route of scenic beauty and fitness that starts in the Peak District and climbs to Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly part of the UK, or up to John O’Groats, north-east of Scotland, passing through the most immaculate and famous landscapes of Great Britain.

We’re talking about the Great North Trail, a cycle route between England and Scotland promoted by  Cycling UK that takes two-wheeled adventurers through the beauty of central and northern Britain on less-traveled roads, secondary roads, forest trails. According to the organization, a quarter of people who use the national roads of the United Kingdom do so by mountain bike, valuing the Great North Trail could thus have benefits on the economy and the health (physical and mental) of those who decide to browse it.

Recognizing the psycho-physical benefits of physical activity together with those of the environment, Cycling UK is helping to give new value to cycling in England, pushing that quarter of the British population who regularly travels the national arteries on two wheels to leave their cars for journeys that are not related to pressing professional commitments.

A brilliant idea that aims to combat the level of environmental pollution caused by car traffic in favor of the many benefits of outdoor physical activity. Ready for this big tour?
