One of the most famous cycle routes in the UK known by the Coast to Coast, C2C or Sea to Sea is 147 miles of stunning scenic beauty.
Having opened in 1994, the route from Whitehaven to Sunderland or Tynemouth provides a fantastic array of scenery from the coastal industry of Whitehaven onto the Norther Lake District, the lush Eden Valley before going up onto the Northern Pennines, through delightful village such as the famous Nenthead before passing through Consett and heading again to finish amongst industry but this time of the North East Coast.
During the 147 miles, cyclists will experience the full and diverse landscape this section of England has to offer. The achievement of going from one side of the UK to another is fulfilling and along with the fact these parts are sparsely populated, it’s no wonder the C2C is one of the most popular, long distance cycle routes. The route is made up a very low percentage of main roads, just 4%, minor roads which include quiet, country roads 50% and the ever developing and increasing cycle paths 46%.
The route is accessible but there are still the questions of where to stay, how to transport luggage and how to get home! C2C Hassle Free has been set up to help with all that. Located at Main Farm in the Eden Valley and 63 miles from starting with dipping the cycle wheel into Whitehaven Harbour, this service sorts everything out with a choice of 1, 2 and 4 day rides. Stay at the idyllic setting of Mains Farm, C2C Hassle Free will sort out meals at one of the 2 local pubs, then drop cyclists off for the grand depart, organise accommodation and meals for the next night and finally upon arriving in Tynemouth (their chosen finish an definitely a lovely place to end an epic ride) where bike will be loaded onto the trailer for destination Mains Farm.
Really take in and enjoy this magnificent 147 mile C2C cycle route to its full potential and let C2C Hassle Free sort out the rest. For more information visit http://www.c2chasslefree.co.uk
