Coast to Coast Cycle Routes


Three Great Sea to Sea Rides: C2C, Hadrian's, Reivers. Coast to Coast Cycle Routes is THE practical guide to crossing Britain, containing all the information any cyclist could possibly need when embarking on a trip. It takes you from West to East and East to West three different ways, following Britain's three most popular coast to coasters: the C2C, Hadrian's Cycleway and the Reivers. This is the 18th edition of the eat, sleep and drink pocket guide, and contains new mapping including off-road sections and spiral binding to make it more user-friendly.

This 18th edition of the pocket guide to the spectacular cycle routes across the northern Lake District and Pennines, includes clear mapping and the Yellow jersey loop via Ullswater and a new alternative route into Sunderland via Durham.

Much of the routing is traffic-free, along compacted cycle-friendly tracks built along old railway lines. The routes are all thoroughly signposted and somehow manage to eke out the least busy country lanes, taking in many places just off the beaten track.

This guide has up-to-date listings of all the best pubs, B&Bs, hotels and restaurants. But importantly it also includes maps, topographical profiles, lots of route information and other practical help. Plus historical and cultural background to the fascinating and often beautiful communities the cyclist meanders through. The ethos of the book is to Go Slow, to imbibe at leisure some of Britain's finest and yet often deserted landscapes, whether it be the wilderness of Northumberland or the liquid gold sunsets of the Cumbrian coastline. But it's also handy for the cycle nut who wants to do it over a weekend: every trip, no matter how short, needs careful planning.

The C2C Cycle Route


The C2C cycle route first opened as a formal route in 1994. It is a cyclist’s version of Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk, but follows a shorter route with considerably fewer hills. The route was designed by Sustrans and is now the UK’s most popular long-distance cycle route.

The route in this guidebook is described from west to east, as this is often held to be the ‘best’ direction in which to cycle the C2C.

The C2C has two different start and finish points at both ends of the route – a choice between Whitehaven or Workington on the west coast and Tynemouth or Sunderland on the east coast.

The route can easily be completed in five days by those with a basic level of fitness. If you cycle further and faster, it’s possible to ride from sea to sea in four, three or two days.

Most of the C2C route follows traffic-free cycle tracks or quiet minor roads, allowing you to enjoy cycling with minimum stress or danger from traffic.

route described in 5 stages from west to east with variant first and final legs
5 taster routes to give cyclists a flavour of the full C2C
off-road, variant and link routes also included
