This ‘must-do’ family 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, cycleways and paths.
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 1903ft 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!
You can choose to spend the first night in either Newcastle or Penrith before we transfer you early the next morning to Whitehaven and the start of your ride which ends 140 miles later in Tynemouth. Time for those all important celebratory photos! We will meet you in Tynemouth then transfer you back to Newcastle or Penrith for your onward journey home. 
Please make sure that you let us know whether you prefer to arrive into Newcastle or Penrith at the time of booking!
This self-guided trip is for a minimum of 2 people and accommodation, transfers, luggage transfers and emergency back up are all included. We also provide detailed route notes and maps to enable you to do the route self-guided. Nothing could be simpler!

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

This trip has been designed for active families who cycle regularly who want to bag the iconic C2C long distance cycle route at an easier pace with an easy to follow route in spectacular surroundings. The trip is place to place, so your children should be able to cycle the distances stated on the dossier. The terrain is mainly on quiet roads, cycle tracks and is hilly in places with some cheeky climbs. There are also some unsurfaced sections and occasionally times when you will cycle alongside the main road. We advise that both you and your children must be comfortable cycling in this environment.
