Sustrans C2C

20 April 2004

140 miles from Whitehaven to Tynemouth. This was my fist long distance cycle ride, which I did on a bike I bought to get too and from work during the petrol crisis, it was a cheap Halfords Apollo mountain bike and is really heavy, but also very sturdy.

The route itself is stunning, you ride through some of the most beautiful scenery England has to offer, it’s challenging and in some places downright hard work.

Day 1 – Whitehaven to Keswick

Day 2 – Keswick Sightseeing

Day 3 – Keswick to Langwathby

Day 4 – Langwathby to Allenheads

Day 5 – Allenheads to Tynemouth
