England: Coast to Coast to Coast Cycling Holiday

Join us in September for a four night trip with three epic rides across the beautiful north of England and back. We start in St Bees just outside Whitehaven and ride 145km per day over the classic coast to coast to Tynemouth and then back mostly following the Hadrian's Cycleway. The route goes through the Lake District, North Pennines & follows Hadrian's Wall. We start by dipping our back wheels in the Irish Sea and at our mid point on ride three, dip our front wheel in the North Sea before finishing back on the beach in St Bees.

Starting in Stanhope, we kick off the ride with a 3.5km climb before a long 35km descend taking us from the empty lanes of the Pennines to the cycle paths on the Tyne in Newcastle. After 64km we finally reach the Atlantic and dip our front wheels in the sea. We then head up the coast for lunch before heading towards Hardian's Wall and the quiet roads close to the border. With spectacular views and some stretches of road where we can chaingang, this is an unforgettable riding day.

Sunday : Gilsland to St Bees

Main Bunch124km1889m 3/5

Our last ride takes us back to the Irish Sea. We turn off the Hadrians Cycleway in order to hit some of the beautiful routes through the Lake District. The first 40km is gentle before a lumpy middle section and final descent to the coast and a celebratory final dinner together. This is the same weekend that many of us should have ridden the Marmotte or Etape but this is just as epic a bike ride with a total distance of 436km and 6,643m.
