Coast to Coast – Saturday 23rd June

The C2C starts in the former coal mining and industrial lands of West Cumbria, travels through the stunning scenery of the northern Lake District and heads into Keswick before passing through Penrith and the Eden Valley with its lush valleys and sandstone villages. It then starts the climb up to Hartside and onto the unspoilt Northern Pennines – the roof of England. There then follows an undulating ride as the C2C meanders through old lead mining villages, such as Nenthead and Rookhope, and down into the Durham Dales before entering the old steel town of Consett. From here it’s an easy ride through one of Britain’s old industrial heartlands to the North Sea and Sunderland. At 147 miles long, the C2C is part of the much larger National Cycle Network of nearly 10,000 miles. It is Britain’s most popular long-distance cycle route and is based on minor roads, disused railway lines, off-road tracks and specially constructed cycle paths.
