Accommodation en-route

While it is the responsibility of each rider to arrange and secure their own accommodation during the cycle ride, we provide some information here, including offers received from local supporters or sister organisations.

Youth hostels are a good option for those on a cycling trip because they always have bike storage and drying rooms and they don’t mind dirty cyclists checking in. Where there is a YHA/SYHA hostel close to an overnight stop, this will be indicated below.

YHA Hostels in England can be contacted through www.yha.org.uk

SYHA Hostels in Scotland are found on https://www.hostellingscotland.org.uk/
