Your safety is our top priority and we’re continuing to follow coronavirus guidance issued by governments across the UK.

About the event

Departing from the coast of West Cumbria at Whitehaven, this challenging itinerary stretches for 225km (140 miles) until reaching the North Sea at Whitley Bay. 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.

This event is organised by Maximum Adventure.
