Experience the feeling of achievement as you cycle right across the UK on this superb alternative to the main Coast to Coast bike ride. The C2C Hadrian’s cycleway is set to become a classic, taking a lower level but longer C2C route from Whitehaven to Tynemouth. The total ride length is 151 miles.
The Hadrain's Wall coast to coast bike route is a fantastic way to cross Britain on a 3-day, fully signed and waymarked bike ride. The hills are more rolling and slightly less demanding than the main C2C route, but the scenery is just as impressive, the historic interest is there too, and fit riders do have extra ride options open to them.
As with all C2C bike rides we make best use of the weekends, so you arrive with us in Penrith on a Thursday evening and complete the ride on Sunday afternoon (except some Bank Holiday weekends). On the first day of biking we transfer you to the start point at Whitehaven, then you pedal north up the Solway coast to join the first section of wall as it brings you inland past Carlisle Castle and onwards across the country, following the wall all the way, over the three days.

Fantastic gentlemans holiday, enough exercise to make it a challenge but still plenty of time to sit in a good pub in the evening and discuss the day's adventures. Jon was a fantastic help with his knowledge of the route and sorting out all of the niggles with the bikes for us.
Devon C2C (Ilfracombe to Plymouth)
All the effort Cycleactive have put in with their experience made it a more enjoyable one for me. Will recommend to all my friends whether they cycle or not (like me).Keep it up !
