About the Coast to Coast Challenge

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 last for years to come.

When you cycle and fundraise for us, you’ll receive:

  • A Sense technical cycling jersey
  • A welcome pack full of fundraising and training advice
  • Fundraising materials to aid your fundraising
  • Support and advice from a dedicated member of the Events team
  • Regular e-newsletters to keep you updated
