The C2C stretches from the harbour at Whitehaven on the Irish Sea to the Abbey and castle at Tynemouth on the shores of the North Sea. The original route ended in Sunderland, but the Tynemouth ending is somewhat more interesting. This route is 142 miles long. It is a great way to see northern England and how the landscape changes sometimes abruptly, sometimes more gently as you cycle along. There is so much to see, the Lakes and fells, the bleak Pennines, beautiful Dales and towns and villages of all sizes. Along the way you should find plenty of time to visit tea shops, pubs and interesting historical and industrial sites.
