The Route

The basic route will encompass all the premiership grounds in England by hopefully the shortest and quickest route for cyclists. We start and finish at the City of Manchester stadium where Manchester City play and visit all the rest of the grounds in a seemingly logical order. The map below shows the overall layout of the route around the UK and individual legs of the trip can be selected on the left.

The total distance is around 820 to 840 miles depending on detours and getting lost! It should take 14 days to complete this journey, so averaging 60 miles per day which should be within reach of these bunch of very non professional cyclists.
