UK’s Top Road Rides: Coast to Coast


If cycling the length of Britain is too much, why not wring its neck and ride coast to coast?

The 147-mile course from Whitehaven on the west coast to Sunderland in the north-east isn’t only one heck of a day in the saddle, but it’s also on quiet, country lanes or cycle-paths almost the entire way.

The route, which was officially opened 20 years ago, is easiest when ridden west to east to take advantage of the prevailing wind, shorter uphills and steeper downhills. However if you’re looking for a serious challenge, start in the east and head toward the Irish Sea!
