Ultimate C2C Guide

Approaching Kirkland village east of Whitehaven

The C2C is the Coast to Coast cycle route from the Cumbria coast at Whitehaven or Workington through the Lake District and the Pennines to finish at the North Sea in either Sunderland or Newcastle Upon Tyne: a fantastic cycling challenge through fabulous landscapes.

It’s no surprise it is completed by many thousands of cyclists every year and is easily Britain’s most popular long-distance cycle route. 

This site shows you where to ride, how to find accommodation and cycle-friendly cafés, plus where to buy a guide book.

Most importantly after the floods of December 2015, you can read which routes and which businesses are open and which are closed. You can also tell us if you know more so that we can add that information to help others.

Instant information can also appear on Twitter and Facebook. So please follow this blog and also follow us on the Twitter and Facebook accounts.
