Whitehaven to Tynemouth - North England

137 miles over 3 days - C2C bike ride

Crossing the country by bike is a fabulous trip to do, and gives riders a great sense of achievement as they pedal those last miles with the North Sea insight. Along the way on the Coast 2 Coast, you take in The Lake District, Eden Valley, Pennines and Northumbria - altogether some of the most beautiful parts of Great Britain.
Our trips complete this Coast to Coast cycle route in 3 days of cycling - that's enough to be a challenge, but still do-able by any moderately fit person. We also make the best use of the weekends, so you arrive with us on a Thursday evening and complete the ride on Sunday afternoon.
A road bike, hybrid bike or mountain bike is suited for this Sustrans C2C bike ride route, as the route has small variants for each type of rider.
For mountain bikers we also offer something a little different - extra C2C bike ride route options with great off-road riding. With CycleActive being based on the Coast to Coast cycle route itself, it's not surprising that we know a few great detours, not shown on any "Coast 2 Coast route - official maps". These are all legal (on rights of way), and really spice up the ride for those people who want to try them.
