Starting with our back tyres dipped in the Irish Sea in the seaside town of Whitehaven, our cycle challenge encompasses some of the best scenery Britain has to offer as we tackle the tough 143-mile ride to Tynemouth.
 

Our fully supported route takes in long, steep climbs over some of the highest passes in the Lake District and some equally impressive descents that will really blow the cobwebs away.  We will pass woodland and pine forests, lakes, streams and moorland quilted with purple heather.

The support we receive on this ride is second to none, and we take care of all the details - from transporting luggage, providing refreshment stops and meals, to arranging accommodation and meals.

From the stunning mountains of the Lake District to the beautiful open moors of the Northern Pennines – all you have to do is hop on your bike and enjoy!  Two coastlines, one objective. Our fully-supported route encompasses some of the best scenery Britain has to offer, as we take in long, steep climbs over some of the highest passes in the Lake District and some equally impressive descents that will really blow the cobwebs away.
