This ‘must-do’ road cycling holiday is a wonderful way to see the varied and beautiful landscapes of northern England, following the well signed National Cycle Network route from the Irish Sea in the west to the North Sea in the east, cycling along quiet country lanes. Leaving the Irish Sea behind, you head into the solitude and space of the Lake District, Cumbria and the North Pennines.
This popular route and firm Skedaddle favourite is not without its challenges, taking in Hartside Pass, where at a respectable 580m above sea level you can stop for a coffee at Britain’s highest cafe and, on a clear day, admire spectacular views across the Lake District, the Solway Firth and into Southern Scotland. The long descent into Alston which follows has to be one of the many highlights of the ride!
After arriving into Penrith you spend the first night in this lovely market town before we transfer you to Whitehaven and the start of your ride which ends 140 miles later in Tynemouth where we will meet you and transfer you back to Penrith or Newcastle train station for your onward journey.
Accommodation, transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back up are all included and we also provide detailed route notes and maps to enable you to do the route self-guided.
