What’s the plan?

So what is the whole Snail Cycle project?

We are two doctors from Chesterfield in Derbyshire

We plan to cycle from the southernmost part of the British Isles (St Agnes on the Isles of Scilly) to the most Northerly inhabited point (Unst in the Shetlands) , unsupported and camping most of the time.

Why Snail Cycle?

Some people cycle from Lands End to John o’Groats in incredible times, this is usually done with a support team in a van or motorhome to carry their luggage, provide food and support and help with all the logistics.

We aim to do the opposite- we will carry our own tent and clothes (our house on our back) , not always take the straightest coarse as we will stick to quieter rural roads and will definitely not be the fastest
