This 400-km trip paints two very different pictures of Great Britain. It takes you from the busy streets of London to the vast countryside of North Wales and Snowdonia Natural Park. The trip starts just south of the River Thames with a view of Canary Wharf, one of the most famous parts of the London skyline. You'll cross Tower Bridge and catch a glimpse of London's modern and historical architectural masterpieces as you make your way out of the city. Once clear of the metropolis, you'll take the Midlands motorway to Telford and Shrewsbury before crossing the border into Wales at Pen-y-Bont. After a pitstop at Bala Lake, the trip continues north toward Llyn Brenig and Betws-y-Coed through breathtaking landscapes. Finally, the tour comes to an end at spectacular Black Rock Sands Beach.
