C2C in a Day! 1 Week to go!

Well it's only a week to go before we will be loading up and setting off in the coach for St Bee's in Cumbria.

It all started when a group of us last year decided to take on the challenge of the 'Coast to Coast in Day 2015' which is a 150 mile cycle ride from the Seascale, Cumbria through the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the Northern Valleys of the North Yorkshire Moors finishing by the sea in Whitby in just one day!! Yes. just one day and if that is not enough of a challenge the route also takes in over 15,000ft of climbing!!

  1. Very best of luck go you all, what a great challenge, would love to do it. Need to get off my fixie and onto a road bike! Hope the sun shines and ‘may the roads rise with you’ 🙂
