Book description

Guide to the 140 mile Coast to Coast (C2C) Sustrans cycle route from Whitehaven or Workington to Tynemouth or Sunderland. It takes in some of northern England's finest scenery on cycle paths, forest tracks and minor roads, with off-road options and a selection of taster day rides also described in the book. The route is described as a 5-day ride, from west to east with variant first and final legs, from Workington and to Sunderland. Itineraries are also included for 2, 3 and 4-day options, and riding the route from east to west. Detailed profiles and OS mapping illustrate each stage, and information is provided for those riding the route with children. The C2C is a popular cycle challenge, whether undertaken over a single day or a full week. The Hadrian's Wall and Reivers' Way cycle routes also offer great options for a return trip.
