Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge

Be inspired by some of the most dramatic scenery England has to offer on this classic bike ride from West to East.

Departing from the coast of West Cumbria, this challenging itinerary stretches for 140 miles until reaching the North Sea. The picturesque route crosses the northern edge of the Lake District, then climbs into the dramatic landscapes of the northern Pennines. Following the ancient fringes of Hadrian’s Wall, it then heads down to the coastline of Whitley Bay.

You’ll need all your pedal power to tackle big ascents and descents in the Eden Valley and Northumberland National Park. The aches and pains will be long forgotten, however, while the memory of this remarkable journey past former mining towns and Roman forts will endure for years to come.


  • Day one - travel, arrival and preparation.
  • Day two - Whitehaven to Alston ride (65 miles)
  • Day three - Alston to Whitely Bay (75 miles)

What a way to see the glorious countryside and raise money for learning disability in Leeds!

All we ask is a registration fee of £75 to secure your place and a minimum sponsorship of £825.
