The C2C2C (Sea to Sea to Sea) cycle ride is a tremendous 12 night (9 days riding) sightseeing tour across Northern England, you will start out on the east coast at Tynemouth with your rear wheel in the North Sea and head west along Hadrians Wall to the far west coast at Whitehaven (160miles), before turning back and heading through the Northern Lake District and over the challenging Pennine Hills (The backbone of England) before finishing 15 miles from where you started in Sunderland.
On the way you will cycle along the ancient Roman Wall constructed by Emperor Hadrian in AD122. Built as a 76 mile defensive structure to keep out the Celts from the North (Scotland) invading the newly acquired Northern region of Britain.
We will stop over at Haltwhistle on the way west and spend a day on foot exploring the Wall and the remains of the Roman settlement at Vindolanda http://www.vindolanda.com/ which is still being excavated. At it’s peak there were over 50,000 Roman troops defending the Wall from various forts and fortifications along it’s route.
When we reach the west coast we will dip our front wheel in to the Irish Sea to prove we have completed the Sea to Sea ride.
On the return journey you will stop over for a day to enjoy the Lakeland market town of Keswick and all it has to offer. Surrounded by mountains and sitting on the northern shore of Derwent Water, Keswick http://www.keswick.org/what-to-do/attractions is arguably one of the prettiest towns in the Lake District. Spend the day walking in the hills, cycling, or just enjoying the local hostelries and relaxed atmosphere before we start heading for the Pennine Hills and the most challenging part of the ride!
On the last day we will stop off at the world famous Beamish Open Air Museum, set in different ages from the 1820’s right through to the 1940’s there is something for everyone, including trams, a farm, a colliery, authentic shops and many other experiences long since disappeared in modern life. https://www.beamish.org.uk/
