Newcastle Upon Tyne
Tyne and Wear NE6 1BU
Join Saddle Skedaddle on this ‘must-do’ cycling holiday. With its quiet country lanes, cycleways and paths the C2C is a wonderful way to see the varied and beautiful landscapes of northern England, on the National Cycle Network route from the Irish Sea across to the North Sea and you’ll also have the chance to drop into the Cycle Hub for a yummy lunch on the way through!!
After dipping our back wheel in the sea at Whitehaven, we head eastwards into the solitude and space of the Lake District, Cumbria and the North Pennines. This well paced cycling holiday ends 140 miles later as we cross the fabulous millennium bridge in Newcastle before reachingTynemouth.
Newcastle is our chosen rendezvous point for the Coast to Coast ride. With its excellent road, rail and air connections getting to Newcastle is easy. From Newcastle we transfer by to our first night’s accommodation in Keswick. After breakfast we make our way by minibus to Whitehaven. Over the next few days our cycling takes us through Cumbria, past the highest cafe in England at Hartside, across the rugged scenery of the North Pennines, & alongside the River Tyne to Tynemouth.
If you fancy extending your ride, you can continue on from Tynemouth to Edinburgh, with four more fantastic days of cycling. The Coast and Castles route takes you up the stunning Northumberland Coast, along the Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders, and over the Moorfoot Hills into Edinburgh. Our Coast and Castles supported trip, starts in Newcastle, one day after the supported C2C finishes.
