Coast to Coast Cycle: 9 – 12 August 2018
Your cycling challenge…
…is to conquer the breadth of Britain by bike! Starting with back tyres dipped in the Irish Sea in the seaside town of Whitehaven, your cycle challenge encompasses some of the best scenery Britain has to offer as you tackle the tough 136 mile ride to Tynemouth.
The 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. You will pass woodland and pine forests, lakes, streams and moorland quilted with purple heather.
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!

Land’s End to John O’Groats: 28 August – 9 September 2018
…is to pedal from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the furthest possible distance in the British Isles. This is a classic challenge that is on many a cyclist’s ‘to do’ list. Covering more than 12 counties, this is one of the toughest fundraising cycle events available. From the rocky cliffs and pounding seas of Land’s End, through the rolling hills of Dartmoor, the stunning mountains of the Lake District and along the lochs of Great Glen to our finish line at the northernmost point of the UK mainland, LEJOG will test you to your limits!
