C2C Whitehaven to Tynemouth.

140 miles from Whitehaven to Tynemouth, the Sustrans C2C route. This was my first 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 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.
