may have changed since we were there). The hilliest roads are to be found in South Yorkshire in Phil Liggett country with a concerted effort needed to climb to the summit of 1,716ft Holme Moss. The mist so low on the day we were there that the BCQ, a sign related to the transmitter couldn’t be seen.


The most spectacular roads have to be


in Wester Ross where we found ourselves in crisp sunshine surrounded by a turquoise ocean and snow capped mountains. The


Cambridgeshire Fens provided the flattest territory and not once on our 90 mile ride did we freewheel.


One of the big BCQ highlights was on the Isle of Man when we were turning off the main A1 towards Ramsey and the BCQ at Cronky Voddy – Mark Cavendish passed us in the opposite direction. There was, however, no chance of us turning round and chasing him down! If you are looking for something different, then how about taking your tandem to the


centre of London, with the Globe theatre and The Greenwich Observatory being notable BCQs. We are already planning our next trips with the Shetlands and Orkney’s high on the list. It has been somewhere we have always wanted to go and it is the BCQ that is taking us there. We couldn’t rate the British Cycle Quest highly enough.
